Going to the playground was one of the easiest things to check off of big girl’s summer checklist. We are very lucky to live basically across the street from a great playground. There is equipment designed for little kids and equipment that is better suited for the big kids. It’s a little scary for me, though, because both of my little girls believe that they can conquer the entire playground……and they do! They can do it! But, it sure scares me…… 🙂
The summer checklist thus far:
Go to the library. Go to the pool.
- Make banana pudding.

- Play on the McDonalds playground after lunch.
Go to family fun festival downtown. Go to the Art Museum and go to the kids area after looking at paintings. Go to the dinosaur museum (Field Museum). Go to the space museum (Adler Planetarium). Have a pajama day.(Although big girl has now requested that we have 100 pajama days.)
