looking forward

Summer will quickly be upon us here in the desert. And you all know how cranky I get when summer comes. So I try and make the summer as busy as possible for myself so that I can endure the baking hot sun.

Here is what we are planning:

Zion Nat’l Park, of course. Year six. We leave tomorrow.

Spring Mountain Ranch, Willy Wonka. Planning this outing for months now with friends. So excited to take the kids to their first official play.
Camp Invent. Danny is going to his first invention camp with a buddy. He is totally stoked.
Bear Lake. The kids and I are planning a week at the lake with my mom and sister. (Adam will be in China on business–boo, boo!)
Swim lessons. Hopefully we can squeeze a couple of these in. :)

Grandma Penning Visits. YAY!
Relay for Life. We are going to Oregon to participate in Team Georgie this summer. So Excited!
Washington. Oh how I love escaping the desert heat, trading it in for two weeks in Yakima. I can’t wait to hang with my family, scrap with Jes, camp at Rainier with cousins, and see old friends and their children.

The Beach. Yes! Who love the Oregon Coast? We do. We do. We have been planning this vacation since Thanksgiving with my parents and siblings. One whole week in Seaside with my family. The kids are going to learn to body surf this time around. Can’t wait for vacation with my hubby and kiddos.

  1. I just left a comment on your “things I rock at” list. And you DO rock! So, now for this post… I want to say, “SO COOL that you are having a family reunion at the beach!” Jaimee and I just realized the other day that your family and my family are going to be at different beaches on the same week in August. We are going to be on the CA coast (rented a house like you guys did)- and I CANNOT WAIT. This is a little more motivation for the calorie counting for me. I am not asking to be able to run freely in only a bathing suit on the sand. No,…I am just hoping to fit into that plain black SKIRTED swim suit while sitting in a beach chair. Is that too much to ask? Maybe. I dunno, but I am trying for it.
