Our friends did a backyard drive in. It was so much fun! The kids made their own cars and we saw Big Hero 6.
Finishing up our last week of school means we had to stop and grab ice cream.
To kick off summer we went to the real drive in. We saw "Tomorrowland" and "McFarland USA". Both were great movies.
This year the library theme is Super Heroes. We have loved going to Super Thursdays each week to play games, do science experiments, and make crafts. We love our library.
We have hit up several of our local playgrounds with splash pads.
Oh, and Sonic has half price shakes after 8. We have done that just a few times. :)
Water guns and splash pads.
We made it to the zoo. It was lots of fun.
We have made quite a dent in our summer bucket list. I can't wait to cross off the rest of our list. I'm a little sad that summer is going so fast, but so glad we are enjoying it so much.
