Or more specifically for us it would be, pick weeds – but whatever, to them they are the most beautiful flowers! Also we live in the city, so this is about as wild as our wild flowers get – and possibly one of their most favorite things to do on the walk home from the park. Next on the summer to do list: Pick Flowers!

And in case you want to follow along with our simple, but fun summer to do’s:

  1. Picnic in the Park
  2. Chalk Up The City

The kids love to walk around and vandalize the city, with washable chalk. It takes us forever (I cannot emphasize foooooorever, enough) to get anywhere but they love to make marks along the way. So (in case it isn’t obvious) we don’t get lost. Heck you never know when you could lose your way, one day these little X’s might really come in handy. In the meantime, it’s just really a ton of fun for them! So next on the summer to do list: Chalk up Your City!

Last week, King planned (all by himself I might add) for us to have a picnic in the park. It happened to be on a night that Chris had to work, so it was just a party for 3. King picked and packed the blanket, and we grabbed wraps from Freshii (that’s a spinach, kale and quinoa wrap, wrapped in collard greens – highly suggest you try it) and then went to play at the park until our stomachs yelled at us. Really nothing fancy. I wish I could say it was such a blissful and dreamy dinner hour, but lets be honest this is real life that and I forgot how around 5-7 pm the kids get a little coo-coo crazy (I know, how could I forget). There was surely some crazy (mostly me going a little crazy) but also a lot of smiles and just a great time. It was so lovely to just go with the flow and follow a plan that King had created (I’m not always the best at just going with the flow), I will definitely be following his creative lead more – and am a little excited/scared for what he will think of next time.

I’m going to start keeping track of our summer to do’s, after they are done (so summer to done’s?). The little outings or happenings, that at the end of the day felt perfect and amazing (even if a little stressful) no matter how small. When we do stuff, we usually try to keep spending to the lowest possible minimum – I’m hoping at the end of the summer I have a list of the perfect simple summer to-do’s that are tried and tested (and cheap). A list I can follow or build on for next year, and maybe one you can follow along with too.  First up on the summer to do list: go have a picnic in the park!
