Squeezing in a little more summer fun!

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.

Psst...Be sure to keep reading 'til the end for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card! Giveaway closed.

I have great memories of going on trips to visit grandparents each summer when I was a kid.

At Grandma and Grandpa's house in Socorro, New Mexico, my siblings and I would run around their small farm and explore. For at least a couple of summers, we worked on a treehouse we were building. One year we had a blast sliding off the metal roof of a shed onto a mattress below. (I wonder if my parents ever knew about that?!)

At Mamma and Papa's house we'd spend hours playing "Steal the Bacon." I won't bore you with all the rules of the game, but suffice it to say, it involved lots of running, laughter...and intrigue. I couldn't wait to play every year.

I'm so glad my kids get the experience of visiting grandparents too! The Engineer and I often wish we lived closer to our parents, but I do enjoy the excitement that comes along with less-frequent visits.

So before the summer is over, we're spending a couple of weeks having fun with the grandparents.

We arrived in Arizona to see my parents a couple of days ago, and we have a lot of fun things planned! My mom is so good at making our time together special. She's setting aside one day as "Chickie Day," and one day as "Zoodle Day." She's letting them choose a special meal. (Chickie's requested plain pasta, and Zoodle wants burritos...no filet mignon for these two!) They also have chosen special activities. Grammy will help Chickie make a bead necklace, and I think we're going to take Zoodle to McDonald's to play. Besides their special days, there will be lots of other special activities like donuts with Sampa. (The donuts will have plenty of sprinkles, of course!) The kids are going to have a ball (and I'm going to relax while I have the chance!)

Next week we'll be way up north in California to see The Engineer's parents. There's a fun park in their neighborhood. It includes an old-style merry-go-round--you know, the type they don't put in playgrounds anymore because it's not totally safe. But we all survived playing on those merry-go-rounds, right? Chickie has loved playing on this one in past years, and I think Zoodle will love it too this year! Hopefully they'll see some deer in the woods that back up to Grandma and Grandpa's property. They'll get to watch cartoons on cable channels that we don't have at home. The kids will love having a couple of extra grown-ups to read to them too!

Because our kids aren't in school yet, summer isn't really that different than the rest of the year. But this year we've still managed to make it special, with lots of playdates, and now with a fun trip to see both sets of grandparents. And when the kids get a little older...I think marathon games of Steal the Bacon will definitely be in order!

We still have a few small weekend fun things planned for while summer is in the air. We are going to take a roadtrip to visit another zoo, and we are also going to be building a swingset in the backyard (thanks to my wonderful in-laws).

I've already had a great summer, even though I work. Got to visit my family in northern Minnesota for a week. This weekend its GIRLS WEEKEND with some friends. We designed our own beer bus tour, via the city bus. The next day we are renting a pontoon boat to enjoy a day on the lake. :)

The Clines said...

I'd like to enjoy the rest of the summer by going to the beach more, having picnics and finally making our way to a drive-in movie.

stacief said...

We are still waiting for summer in No Cal, such a cold one! We did a summer trip to visit my inlaws in July and now we just had our last summer fling in Murphys CA with my Aunt and Uncle. Boys have had lots of family time!

Be careful on the Merry go round...my almost 3 year old flew off it like a rocket! Luckily just scraped his arm - rather badly, but he was a trooper!

ElleBee said...

We're hoping for a trip to the Brookfield Zoo and one to the Museum of Science & Industry!

We school year round. I'm looking forward to cleaning out a few more closets before it gets cool enough to play outside again. :)

I'd love to fit in a "real" vacation before the end of summer. Not the kind of trip that involves running around like crazy seeing sights and seeing people. The kind that involves a hammock on a beach or a hot tub in the mountains. Reading and relaxing and no classwork. That sounds glorious.

I would love to go on a real vacation but I don't think that is going to happen. We are going to go to the local amusement park that also has a huge water park so that should be fun

Kara said...

It's been a busy summer so far, so I want to spend the last few weeks before preschool starts up by doing nothing! We're done with summer camps, we've done all our big trips, and now it's time to kick back and have lazy days of playing outside, going to the beach, or just chilling at home with the coloring books.

Because it's so foggy and drizzly during our summers, we tend to make a lot of soup and stay cozy inside. We'll probably do more 'summer' things like spraygrounds, swimming and beach trips when the sun comes out in Sept/Oct!

mf said...

We are enjoying summer by staying inside in the cool AC away from the 100+ degree weather LOL. My daughter has enjoyed her summer by going on different field trips with her summer camp and having a lot of play time with her friends.

We still have passes to the community pool. Tonight we have a neighborhood ice cream social. Even though it rained today, the kids went to the park and blasted off their home made rockets.

School may start on Monday for my kids, but they are certainly sucking the marrow of these last summer days.

We'll be winding down the summer by being outside as much as possible. Bike rides, picnics, barbecues, back yard games and maybe even get in a backyard camping night.

Oh, our favorite thing is hanging out in the pool and playing in the water. I hope we can still do this for a few more weeks before the water gets too cold...

We ended our Summer by visiting the animal sanctuary that's a few miles away. It was delightful to be able to see, pet, and feed all the animals! I hope we can go back sometime.
