summer bucket list
2014 summer to-do list.
the same as years past, we’ve listed out some things to try to accomplish this summer. so much more exciting and daunting with hazel in the mix. we have a few things that we know we are going to do (beach, batavia, and the train) and a few things that we will likely do a […]
when we aren’t on vacation…
we’ve been on vacation for a good chunk of the summer so far. well. just the beach and batavia. but it seems like a lot. anyhow… here’s what’s been going on when we haven’t been traveling… we signed up for free weekday bowling with amf. we’ve only been once, with our pals, the pattisalls, but […]

dan nicholas park. with friends.
i hopped on here, to detail our trip to the beach. when i scrolled back through the pictures, i realized i haven’t blogged about our little getaway to dan nicholas park awhile back. so, i’ll start there. and then hope that the naps hold out long enough for a beach blog post… first we rode […]

summer ’12 to do
with one day of school left for the boy, we decided to assemble our second annual summer to do list. the first one was a big hit, and this year’s looks very similar. why ruin a good thing? we left some space to add in some extra ideas.
living room campout
A while back, we set up the tent in the living room in an attempt to check off an item on our summer to-do list. Isaac was excited. He made popcorn with his dad. And we set up camp to watch a movie (rio). After the movie, there was a lot of flopping, flipping and […]
when jake was here.
after our trip to ny, as i previously mentioned, jake paine made his way back to the nc with us. jake was glad to join in on our summer to do list… the making of milkshakes… isaac wasn’t sold, but played along. they both played a lot of mariokart. a lot. jake handed down his […]
colored rice. the making and the playing.
one item on our bucket list was coloring rice. not because isaac wanted to, but because i had seen it in internetland and decided i wanted to try it. once we got started though, isaac was all in and just as happy as if he had come up with the idea himself… shaking the bags […]
