082. Our Summer Bucket List

I saw this idea for a summer bucket list over on hi, baby & the other night while Colin was out I spent HOURS searching for new ideas to put on ours! The idea of spending a whole 6 weeks at home, without a car (we're getting rid of Colin's work car to save some dollar) is pretty daunting, so this will be great to look at when we're having "one of those days"! Without further ado, here's our 2011 Summer Bucket List!

1. Make ice-lollies.
2. Go to the zoo.
3. Sidewalk chalk.

081. Daddy Day.

Yesterday was Daddy's day off (he has to work every other weekend, but every third weekend he works he gets Sunday off, geddit?) so we decided to go & spend some time at the park as a family!

Daniel was getting easily distracted watching all the big kids areound him, but then all of a sudden he would start with this hysterical mad man laughing! Too cute!

P1060258

Pointing! We really point! I die.

P1060259

HIGH FIVES!

Daniel just wanted to climb up, and down, and up, anddown, and up...

Cheeky grin!

Since then we've just been packing. It's really sad, packing up all our stuff, and our little home looks really bare & empty! I think I must have about half of it done now, keeping out the bits we need this week (toys, clothes, toiletries etc). Luckily I have the rest of the week off (half term again, wow!) to get everything organised!

Daniel Kyle woke me up at 6am today, so I've been super grumpy all day, & Daddy let me do a little bit of shopping (H&M has a massive sale on, with some amazing bargains!) to cheer myself up! :) A new makeup bag, a yellow vest top, and FOUR beautiful new dresses! For less than £20.00!! Which I'm sure will be seen in a Mama Baby Style post very soon!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend!

{We went for a lovely walk in the sunshine this morning too, to get some bread and then we stopped at the park. It was really busy & I didn;t take many photos cause I feel kinda wierd about it when there's loads of other kiddos around, and I was too busy chasing Daniel, playing on the slide and practicing walking! He walks kinda like a crab, sideways, & he's getting SO much better with only holding one hand! I'm such a proud Momma!}

{Daniel's been asleep for over an hour since we got bach, must have tired him out! I have to go make lunch though, cause we have to pick up my little brother soon, as he watches Daniel for me while I'm at work on a Wednesday. Muffin pizzas for lunch, prop makiing at work, & drinks with a (pregnant) old friend this afternoon! I'm definately having a happy day!}

Linking up at The Paper Mama for Wordless Wednesday!
