What Do You Do In The Summertime ...

If you have young kids, there is a good chance you are familiar with Phineas and Ferb. These two crazy kids want to make the MOST of their summer vacation ... and so do WE! A friend posted a list of fun things to do on her blog, and I thought it was a great idea. A good reference for those days the boys say "there's NOTHING to do" and hopefully with a list in black and white, we'll make more of an effort to hit the various activities. If their school teacher assigns the "What I did on my summer vacation" essay, I want them to have SOMETHING to write about. So here's a list of hopefuls ... and I might continue to add to it as I (or the boys) think of more things. What do YOU do in the summertime?

  • Go out to breakfast
  • Mountain Mikes
  • Chuck-E-Cheese
  • SubZero
  • Lagoon
  • The Alpine Slide
  • Bowling
  • Swimming at Grandma's Pool
  • Swimming at Kearns (KOPFC)
  • Splash Pads
  • Water Balloon Slingshot
  • Water Rockets
  • Jump and Bounce
  • NickelMania
  • Go to a Movie
  • Go to a Drive In
  • Host an Outdoor Movie at home
  • Go on a Hike
  • Play Tennis
  • Miniature Golf
  • Make Homemade Icecream
  • Roast Smores
  • Go Camping
  • Make Flubber
  • Family Bike Ride
  • BBGun Shooting
  • Go Fishing
  • Go to the Park
  • Days of 47 Float Preview Party
  • Daybreak Docks
  • Drive by the "UP" House
  • Launch Rockets
  • Kong Cones at Maceys
  • Jumpropes & HulaHoops
  • Car Show
Then there's Boondocks, Classic Fun Center, Hollywood Connection, Cherry Hill ... many other places I'm sure, although with five kids it tends to get a little spendy, so I'm not sure they are really on MY list ...

And just to leave you with a few MORE ideas ...
here's a list from Phineas and Ferb ...

What do YOU do in the summertime???


  1. Sounds good! Now how about a list of things they can do on their own without leaving home while I take a nap?

  2. Wendy, I try to get my kids to clean. It is so not working.
