I love summer. I love swimming in the pool, the smell of food cooking on the grill, eating outside on the back deck and having a constant excuse for craving an ice cream cone (which - let's be real - I crave all year long, but it's more socially acceptable in the hotter months). In the summer I want to go out and DO things with our kids! But I'm not so good at coming up with something fun to do on the fly (no one has ever accused me of being spontaneous)
During the week, we're not able to get much accomplished around the house other than making dinner, helping with homework, bath time, story time, bed time, cleaning up the dinner and making lunches for the following day. Everything else? That gets done on the weekends.
