Looking for the Cure for Summer Burnout??

Are you starting to get a little burned out? Looking for something to spice up your week? Look no further! Wednesday is Chuck E. Cheese lunch day, so come on out! Please reply here if you are interested. You could go to the free movie at 9:00 and head over to Chuck E. Cheese afterwards. Your kids would think you're a hero.
Also, Thursday looked like a sad day with nothing to do, but don't fear, we've added an afternoon pool date. Come to Jenny Baker's pool from 2:30-4:30 for a fun splash in the pool.

Hi Girls! I've heard it thru the grapevine that there are actually people checking this blog for activities. (I kind of thought maybe our readership had dwindled to 1!) I apologize for not updating sooner, but I will get back on track now. We cancelled the Padres game outing on Wednesday due to scheduling conflicts/lack of interest/fear of heat exhaustion.(how's that for an explanation?) :) Friday's pool day will be hosted by Emily Bradley at the Heritage Hills pool from 10am-noon. Hope to see lots there! Keep checking, and I'll be on the ball!

Railroad Museum-Tuesday this Week

Hi all! I'm wondering if anyone is interested in going to the free Railroad Museum day tomorrow at Balboa Park. I have to take my car in for service so I'm going to be without a vehicle all day so I am out, unless someone wants to go and can offer me and my three kiddos a ride... Let me know what y'all are thinking~

Ok, so with a great deal of help from Shauna (THANK YOU!!), I have been able to post the calendar! Yipee! Now that I know how to do it, I just need to transfer all the events to the google calendar and post the updated link. I'll work on that tonight, so check tomorrow for an updated calendar link. Let the fun begin soon....Check here for calendar.

Credit for Trying??

So, I thought it would be great to post our calendar on this blog, but I have found it next to impossible to actually figure out how to get a calendar on here. I am having issues with my google account and google's calendar maker and I have tried other ways to post a calendar on here and it's just not working. I guess that I will just rely on the old fashioned photocopy calendar and pass it out on Sunday. I'm not really sure anyone is looking at this blog anyways! So, of you are interested in getting the calendar on this blog and you have the knowledge and computer wits to help me with it, that would be great! Otherwise, my only option is to hand out printed copies on Sunday. Any comments? (hello...is anyone out there???)~~~Laura

I'm not sure if any is reading this yet, but let's get some suggestions for activites for the calendar. So far, these are some ideas:
-Park day
-Pool Day
-Beach Day
-Free Movies
-Summer Kid's Book Club
-Sea World
-Zoo and/or Wild Animal Park
-Free Museums
-The Wave water park
New possibilites:
-Kid's cooking club
-Craft/Scrapbooking day with kids(maybe YW could help)
-Breakfast get together in jammies with your favorite stuffed animal
-Cake decorating contest

Let throw all kinds of ideas out here. The more the better! I'd also love to see some ideas from everyone about celebrating the last day of school. Does your family have any fun traditions? Family Fun magazine has some fun ideas on their website. We had a great time last year with a few of their ideas. Check it out here
Please share your ideas and summer stories too!

Suggestions anyone?

Ok, so as summer is coming around I have been thinking about the summer calendar. First of all I Shauna, can't be responsible for doing it this year. I have too many things going on with too many different schedules to keep track of. With that said, I would still love the option of going to activities. I love the idea of a summer calendar because it really brings people together in a social setting and the kids get to play with each other while the adults can talk. All of this while doing things that you would already be doing like going to the pool, or the beach or the park, etc. Soooooo Laura M. and I were thinking that maybe we could just have a summer blog, and everyone that wants to post can be a "poster", or people could just leave comments. So if you were going to say be at the beach, you could just post it on the blog and people could check it every week or every day (if you wanted to) to see if there are things going on that week. So it would be a little less formal, and the blog could also be a way to talk to others like the yahoo group that we used to do, only it would be voluntary if you wanted to read the posts.

I don't know for sure what the official Relief Society groups will be this summer, I only know that this is not endorsed by the church in any way, so these are all unnoficial del norte activities. So I guess my question is do you want to...

1. Just get everyone that wants to on the posting list and then when people do things that they want others to join they could put it on the blog..

2. Do an unofficial official calendar that we print up and pass out at church (however if you vote for this you automatically become the one responsible)...

3. Have somewhat of a schedule like tuesdays park day, wed beach day etc. (we will also need volunteers for pools)...

4. Do something else that I haven't written, please put your suggestions in the comments.

Thanks for your ideas-Shauna
