Summer Bucket List 2013 Progress...

Painted!
Working on our bucket list, adding more as we go too. The girls get ideas, I get ideas... we may not get through them all.
Scroll down past the pictures to see our list.

Water Fight!
Made a weather station, and a compass.
Dug for dinosaurs.

Piglet's Dr Seuss Party, I need to blog soon.
Swimming in the creek down the street... umm yeah... ew. Fish. Living things...
It was fun the kids and their cousins went together.
 Diva found a half live fish. It did swim away.

 Piglet, so funny. They wanted to swim but didn't want to get too much in the water. Till they started going under. UGH.

Pixie making mud pies.

Then there was the Smithsonian... a few of them. Someone stole my laundry pile and put it up as an exhibit. 

Oh... and American Girl birthday dinner...
