Our Summer List

In the same way we create a list of all the things we want to do during the holiday season, there’s a separate list for summer. Am I right? Last summer was the first summer we created a summer list that incorporated get-outside adventures for all of us. With our boys ages four and two, we’re beginning the family fun day trips B & I enjoyed as kids. Needless to say, our list isn’t complicated but is full of family fun that creates memories, and savours the warmest months of the year. Here’s our summer list so far…

Go strawberry picking.

Make strawberry jam.

Pitch a tent in the backyard.


Watch a movie outside.

Visit the Toronto Zoo.


Visit Centreville.


Dine al fresco as often as we can; with B, with family, with friends.

Wendy, you have a great list! I love making jam and of course, eating outside. My neighbors always have a movie in their backyard in the summer and it's so much fun!
