5 Favorite Summer Activities
I will admit that one of the things that I love, love, love about Summer is not to have a schedule. This is especially nice after the crazy Spring sport end of year activities. That being said, I do love to do things on these non scheduled days.
1. Jersey Shore
Last year we went to the beach a lot. There is just something about having the sand between your toes which is so nice. Please don’t think that I spend all my time on the beach because I love jumping the waves as much as the next person.
2. Roller Coasters!
Yes, I’m still a big kid at heart. Last year we went to a few different parks and by far my favorite was Dorney Park because of not just the number of roller coasters, but the number of times that I got to ride them with the boys:)
3. Day Trips – love to surprise the boys with a trip to the zoo, aquarium, or any such place. It breaks up the week and is always fun to go someplace that you don’t get to go to often.
4. Visiting Momo
We always have a great time when we go out to Momo’s AKA as Grandma to the boys:). There is swimming, making smores by the fire pit, tire swing, and usually lots of goodies.
Some people don’t understand my love for Vermont as we go camping, but we go camping right on a lake. We are able to disconnect as there is no cell service at the campsite. We spend our days laying in the hammock, relaxing, and just being together. Plus it’s really pretty.
What are your favorite Summer Activities?
I love the beach too! I still go to the Jersey shore with my parents every summer. We have been going to the same place since I was 13!
I think that’s the way it works! You find your spot and stick with it:)
OMG I am such a roller coaster junkie. My dream is to go to Cedar Point one day and ride all the coasters there.
I’ve always heard about Vermont and thought it’d be so beautiful to visit. Where is the lake located where you camp?
We a right on the boarder of Canada. It’s a farming community and so peaceful. If you ever get a chance, go to Vermont. It really is beautiful.
YAY Jersey Shore! We go to LBI and love it 🙂
we have a very similar list: beach, amusement parks and day trips. love it!
Growing up my mom used to take us on all sorts of random day trips. She was a teacher so she was off all summer. We were always going to the zoo, aquarium, DC, all over the place. We also weren’t on any kind of schedule – it was nice to wake up to that kind of surprise on a random Tuesday. Have a great summer!
Thanks! It’s nice to know you have fond memories of your random trips. I hope my boys think of them the same way:)
ooh was in Vermont last summer to visit a friend in Stowe-gorgeous!
oooh Vermont! I love it up there. My friends just bought a B&B in Shelburne 🙂 can’t wait to go visit!
