The thing about summer is that there is so much to do! And not enough time to do them all.
Take two weekends ago for example. There was the Summer Celebration - two days of festivities, including a parade, boat rides, a festival/carnival/fairgrounds, fireworks etc.
However, we also had a birthday party to attend, and a Day Out with Thomas.
We managed to see the parade on Saturday before going to the birthday party for lunch. Unfortunately, we were all to tired out to make it to the park for festivities and fireworks when we got back.
On Sunday, we managed to stop by for a Norwegian Pancake breakfast. Yummy crepes cooked on a barbeque topped with your choice of jam, honey and sugars (normal, cinnamon or powdered). There was a fairground with lots of inflatables, rides, entertainment and even more food.
Unfortunately, we had to rush of to attend the Day Out With Thomas at Snoqualmie, so we could not stop to play just then. We promised to make a day out of it and go back after we were done with Thomas, but by the time we got back, they were done for the day (and summer!). So the children could not play on any of the inflatables or rides. They were really good about it, and enjoyed themselves on the playground, though.
Next year, I'll need to plan better and ensure that the fun stuff that we want to do don't clash. :)
