I can’t believe it’s already June! It’s been a quick 10 weeks since I wrote my “Spring Bucket/To Do List” but it doesn’t feel like that much time has passed. I say that every year, though, and I’m guessing I’m not the only one.
As June begins, I like to revisit my spring list and make a new one for summer. I’m happy to say that it’s been a busy & fun spring and that I can cross off nearly everything I wrote back in March on that list. Which probably explains the lack of blog posting I’ve been doing, but whatev…
We went to another Flyer’s game, and Jax cheered and did all the adorable things toddlers do when egged on by family members seeking an easy laugh.
We went to Washington, DC–eventually. Our original trip was rescheduled due to the stomach virus from hell, which had me and Jax puking our guts up for a week. It was worth the wait, however. The weekend we chose was the most beautiful weekend all spring. Perfect for wandering around a new town.
We hit up the Italian Market Festival in Philadelphia, like we do every year. I’m disappointed to say I didn’t drink a single cup of wine there and I didn’t eat as much as I usually do. I blame Jax, who was a little crankypants that day. But I did get my pistachio gelato, so all was (mostly) right with the world.
Our friends’ wedding is in 2 weeks. You’ve probably seen my tweets asking which dress to buy or which shoes go with each dress, and so on. Which reminds me–as much as I love Shabby Apple, they sure are awful at responding to tweets directed at them (or maybe they hate me). Good grief!
Playdates, playdates, playdates. We’ve had a few so far. Jax informed me the other day that he plans to marry my friend’s daughter, who is one of our frequent playdates and a year younger than Jax. I told him no weddings for at least 20 years.
Zoo membership? Check!
Phillies tickets? Check!
I’m proud to say I’ve gone out with girlfriends a few times over the past few months, too. I’m trying to make free time (time alone) a priority in my life. It’s key to avoiding burnout, but it has been a challenge for me over the years. Which is odd, given how energizing and refreshing it is!
And as for the jogging stroller, we’ve certainly got a lot of use out of it so far. One of my favorite things to do after dinner is to put Jax in the stroller and do our usual lap around the neighborhood, ending up at the local park. It’s a nice way to kill time before the bath and bedtime routine and combine fresh air with some light exercise.
In addition to those bucket list items, we’ve been busy with other things this spring, too! Like weaning! And hitting our local farmers’ markets. And spending tons of time outside, whether in our own backyard or in a friend’s or family member’s yard.
What’s on your summer to do list? I need some help writing mine!
