It's that time of year again! I like to sit down with my family and create a list of activities/trips we'd all like to do during the summer. This year is slightly different because we'll have the new baby and aren't planning on taking a big trip, which has actually decreased some anxiety with having to plan and budget for it. Also, because of this new baby and the fact that I have the entire summer off (yay...that has only happened once in my adult life!), funds are lower, so our plans can't be ostentatious!
I usually try to enroll him in day camp for a while, but he's at a weird age (too old for certain camps and too young for others), plus I will be at home so he can just hang with us.
I always check out the community paper for local events, "Like" local group pages on Facebook for great word of mouth info and check out online sites like Timeout and Uwishunu for ideas. Also, join Living Social and Groupon for discounts.
Here's what we came up with this year. It has pretty much the same things as last year, with a few things added in.
What summer plans do you have?
