Summer Round-up

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.

GOT DONE:
Roosevelt Island Tram
Click, Clack, Moo
School Shopping at the Crewcuts Outlet
High Line
Chelsea Waterside Playground
Heckscher Playground
Playdates with 4 different sets of sisters, 2 sets of brothers and one brother/sister combo.
Chinatown
Birds at Bryant Park
brgr (shake shots)
Boston Market
Beach
Pool
Free Movie
Ferry
Fire Island
Brooklyn Children's Museum
LeVain Bakery
Castle at Central Park

did NOT get done:
Spa Castle
Ice Skating
Playdates with a few other friends that we wanted to playdate with
Intrepid
Flea Market
Victorian Gardens
Zoo
Pony Rides
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:
Early Show
Today Show
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!
