What Should We Do This Summer?

 When I was in high school and college, I used to make a list every spring of things that I wanted to do during the summer. It was a fun way to get excited about summertime, plus just an excuse for my list obsessed making self to make another list.

I've made my "50 Things To Do This Summer" list a few times since I've had kids, but it's been a few years, and my list has definitely changed to be a bit more kid and mom friendly. So here is our list for this year, some things are very specific to our family, I've made a graphic of more general fun summer activities for a Catholic family! I'll be linking up here as I blog about our summer adventures!
