Summer To-Do List

Now that summer is fast approaching and the girls are a little older I have a whole list of things I want to do with them.  I was thinking the other day about how I used to love all the different festivals at the Seattle Center (Folk Life (arts/music), Bite of Seattle (food), Bumbershoot (music) and it made me think of the fountain and how fun it would be to let the girls play in it.

  • There is a park in Olympia (near where Paul's parents live) that has these things that shoot water that would also be fun for them.
  • We still haven't been to the Children's Museum.  We were going to go one day last November but they woke up with colds that day.
  • Lake Sammamish State Park
  • Pet store.  Got this idea from someone on a message board.  Good rainy day activity to go to a pet store and just let them look at all the cute animals and fish.
  • Mariner's Game.  Yeah, they suck, but the games are still fun and Olivia is kind of into baseball now after seeing kids playing at our neighborhood ballpark and seeing a Dora episode about it.
  • Fox Hollow Equestrian Center - site of the infamous missed playdate due to lack of parking.  Now I'm determined to take them there and actually get to go in.
  • Kidz Bounce.  A place with bouncy houses and/or ball pits, etc.
  • The trains (real steam engines, etc. circa late 1890s/early 1900s) that are on display in our town.  You can just walk along a path and look at 'em and I think there's a museum, too, but I'd be more inclined to just walk on a nice day.
So there you have it.  Those are things that we've never done before, but we'll also be going to the zoo several times as they got zoo passes for their birthday.  I think we're definitely in for a busy summer!
