I love those ideas, especially the scrapbooking the summer one. I had intended to do that this summer, but keep forgetting to get pictures printed out!

Orange cows? Never heard of it.

Good list but you still forgot horseback riding at the lake!

What a cute blog! I enjoyed looking as I'm drinking my cup of java.

I love to catch fireflies! I can't tell you how many I killed growing up, by putting them in a jar so they would light up my bedroom.

Blessings to you!

I am totally enjoying your ideas. Thanks. I am pretty busy this summer, but it can't hurt to have some back up plans for when the kids get bored.
