And just like that, it's over.
We made a Summer Adventures List back in June and I am here to report what we got done.
Roosevelt Island Tram
Click, Clack, Moo
School Shopping at the Crewcuts Outlet
Chelsea Waterside Playground
Playdates with 4 different sets of sisters, 2 sets of brothers and one brother/sister combo.
Birds at Bryant Park
brgr (shake shots)
Brooklyn Children's Museum
Castle at Central Park
did NOT get done:
Playdates with a few other friends that we wanted to playdate with
Natural History Museum
The common denominator for most of the did NOT get done list, was that they all had green dollar signs next to them ON the list. Money was not flowing as easily as it sometimes does, so we did the best with what we had, and frankly, we had a fabulous time.
The highlight of our summer was our trip to Chicago to see baby brother come home, and reunite as a family.
Our unplanned/unexpected adventures:
West Point Fireworks
Hudson Valley Fresh Corn
Laying in the grass
Setting books out into the wild
New York Public Library
Big slide, north of CP Zoo
Girls, at times summer was hard on me, and I longed for today, but I also learned such a valuable lesson; that being your mom, experiencing life through you and with you, just that...is enough.
Thanks for being my beautiful daughters. I HEART YOU!
