Summer Plans

Hi Foxy Friends! Today I'm hosting over on The Blended Blog, so if you are from there, welcome! Thanks for stopping by! I know you are all dying to know what we're doing this summer. Staying busy that's for sure! Last week I told you how we plan our summer vacation. And today I'm sharing what we're doing!

I'll sort of follow the 5 steps to plan your summer vacation post.

Step 2 was prior commitments: We always go to my cousins house for 4th of July. The kids look forward to it every year, they get to spend the night with their cousins and we get some really good family time in.

Step 3 was to plan kid stuff:

Mini Fox

She is doing her first VBS (vacation bible school) with her best friend. I'm excited and nervous for her, but I'm sure she'll do great.

Baby Fox

Is doing several things, the first thing he is doing Build a Fort, which he loves, next year he'll be able to participate in the big kid fort building and he is so excited for that.

Then we try to do some education things, I gave him 5-6 choices and he picked what he wanted to do. So this year he is going to do some computer programming and a Lego building class. Both classes are 2 weeks, so in all he is doing something for 5 weeks, luckily they are mostly Monday - Thursday, and in the mornings (they are mostly 1.5 hours each).

Step 4 was visiting people:

Last year we spent a long weekend with some good friends, we were in each others wedding and traveled Europe together (pre-kids) and we wanted to see them again. So we are planning a long weekend with them, we're going to travel to their house since they just had another baby. And then we decided we know several people in the vicinity, so we're going to visit with them, then take an extra day to visit our orthodontist friends (they were the ones that did our invisalign, how we met them), and then we're going to extend another day to see my Aunt and Uncle. So what was going to be a 4 day trip turned into a 6 day trip. :)

Then we're also doing Yosemite again this year, we're so excited and can't wait! And we decided to stay an extra day, so that's going to be awesome. It's about a 7 hour drive (not stopping), so last year, we drove 3/4ths of the way, spent the night at a hotel, then drove into the Valley in the morning, and had that day, plus a full day the next day and then we left. We felt for how long it took to get there, it wasn't enough time, so we are staying an extra full day, which will be nice.

Step 5 The Little Things:

We plan on taking the kids to the zoo, and Legoland, plus doing lots of pool time and beach time. Can't get enough of that!
