School's Out for Summer- Summer Bucket List

It's officially the first day of our summer with Emily out of school!  We are super ready for all the fun we are going to have this year.  We worked on our bucket list together and sharing with you above. Emily asked for a couple of other things that aren't on the list: Jumping off the diving board at Mimi's and a mommy and me date (no Madi).  In addition to the items on our list I wanted to share with you all that Fresno and the surrounding areas have to offer.  I need a bucket list just like I need a to-do list because we are so busy that the days start passing by and you don't realize what you are missing.  I'm sharing these ideas with you in hopes that you steal the little moments this summer with your family and make memories that will last a lifetime.

First order of business was a Summer Kick-Off Breakfast.  I made these ice cream cone waffles last year and Emily has been requesting them for weeks.  She wanted to make sure I didn't forget these waffles on the first day of summer; looks like we've got a tradition on our hands.  I also bought a few summer items for the girls to make the day special.  Our morning and summer kicked off with a bang; here's to lots of fun ahead!
