Summer Bucket List- revisited

I cannot believe August is already half over. Ben is now two months old, Madeline starts school in 2 1/2 weeks and Jon starts his job in 2 weeks and goes back to school in 3 weeks and I go back to work in 3 weeks. we have managed to do many of the things on our summer bucket list but there are some things I still want to do. I know that there are some things we just won't get to, but I am hopeful that we will manage to cross a few more things off in the next two weeks. The items in bold are ones we have done.

join and complete the library summer reading program (done)

go strawberry picking (done!)

go blueberry picking (we went three times!)
visit the sprinkler park each week (well, not each week but we have gone!)

*visit Lupa Zoo

*go to Maine for a week in August

go to Santa's Village in NH (while in Maine in August)

swim at Chicopee Memorial State Park

*take Madeline to get a pedicure for a mommy and Maddy day

*take Owen to the park for an Owen and mommy day (we went to Luap zoo)

*watch the fourth of july fireworks

*visit the Farmer's Market

*play at the park

take the kids to see Toys Story 3

*teach Madeline and Owen how to ride their tricycles

lots of fun arts and crafts (no specific projects planned yet but I will think of some!)

*make homemade ice cream (done!)
