Fun in the Summer

Summertime Fun

 

You know Ab and I have 6 kids right? No? Yep. We do. 3 boys and 3 girls black Brady bunch style. Well he has 3 and I have 3, together they are ours, but who’s counting right? Each year (well this is only year two actually — but you get the point) all of the kids converge with us for what can only be described as a summer fun smack down (I just made that up. We’ve never actually called it that.)

So, given the obvious amount of planning and expense involved in keeping 6 kids entertained entails, we have begun planning our summer adventures.

Stuff we are supposed to do:

  • Camping
  • Grand Canyon
  • Swimming Lessons
  • Lemonade Stand

I would really love to take the kids on an international trip, but coordinating and getting approval from all the co-parents would be quite the exercise. We’ve also briefly looked at family camps which seem like fun conceptually. A family adventure vacation could be cool. Check out this one from REI, but at $2,000 a kid I don’t see that happening unless the little ones are smuggled via duffel bags or our loyal readers want to donate such a thing to us hint hint :D.  There are even entire sites dedicated to family adventure travel.

Do you have any super fun and cool ideas for us for the summer? We’d love to hear about them.
