Summer's Coming!!

This is our last week of school YIPEE! The kids and I are thrilled. We have fun during but it's nice not to be tied down to our schedule. PLUS we have lots of fun things we want to do! Soooo... I was looking online for Father's Day gifts and I stumbled across this really cool idea from Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams. She made this cute Hobo bag and then put fun things to draw from every week of summer. This was genius since we forget what we want to do and then summer's usually over! I'm thinking about making these for birthdays and Christmas presents with activities inside too. How fun!

Here are the activities we have inside (some are from Crayon Wishes and some are our own):
 Scavenger Hunt
Go to the O.C. (our community center)
Swim in the pool
Picnic at the park
Water Day!
Paint Outside
Field Day Games
Make S'more
Backyard Drive-in movie
Ice cream picnic at the park
Camp outside all night
This will be a lot of fun and we're excited!!

A few more notes on laundry....

The laundry give away ends tomorrow! This is my first give-a-way so it's a little confusing but I'm happy! I can see who all commented on their facebook by linking through this blog (which gives you one entry) but I can't tell if you guys are commenting separately on your own facebook (which would have gotten you another entry). There's also a way to follow this blog which scores you another entry! If you've done any of these other things then let me know by commenting on here so I can be certain you get all your entries before I draw the winner tomorrow!

 Also, something else that works great on laundry is vinegar. It's all natural and you put it where your bleach normally goes. Vinegar removes smells in case you accidentally leave a load in the washer for too long and it stinks. I would NEVER do that ;-) Or if you have a little one who is potty training and you have a pair of stinky pee undies or panties. I've NEVER experienced that either ;-) Hopefully that tip will help you. In the meantime I hope you all make some awesome detergent and let me know about it!
