Our Top 10 Favorite Summer Activities

Not sure how your Spring/Summer has been but here in Calgary it’s been pretty crappy.  Yep, it snowed this past weekend.  *Sigh*  As a “let’s look at the bright side” opportunity, I am going to list the top 10 things I can’t wait to do once the weather turns warmer.  You notice I said “warmer” not “hot”.  I realize I live in the arctic tundra, folks, that’s the best I can do!

1.  Host barbecues out on our back patio.  We love to entertain and it is so much more fun when we can all go outside and enjoy the weather.

2.  Take Evan for ice cream.  There’s a cute little ice cream shop just down the road.  He LOVES ice cream (though I do miss the days he called it “ooooo cream”.

3.  Go for walks around the neighborhood.  Evan and I like to take walks but it is definitely more fun in nicer weather (who am I kidding….we only go when it’s nice weather!)

4.  Hang out at the park….without coats

5.  Playing outside at Nana & Papa Don’s.

6.  Blowing bubbles.


7.  Calgary Stampede – out of town friends visit, we get to go to the fairgrounds & we get to wear jeans to work for 2 whole weeks!  Oh, and don’t forget the pancakes!

8.  Evan’s Birthday Party! His third birthday is coming up on June 28th.  We’re not sure when his party will be but he keeps telling me that he wants CAKE!

9.  Camping without parkas

10.  Going to the Zoo

So what are you looking forward to doing this summer?

A fun list. I"m thinking you're excited about being without coats. LOL I wear mine about four months of the year because I'm really cold-natured.

My summer will be including the in-law tour. My husband is deployed overseas, and we just had a baby on Easter. Put those 2 things together and it equals in-laws who want me to not be lonely, and want to see their new grandbaby more before Daddy comes home and hogs her up.
