  1. Natasha, what a great list – I totally want to do these things, too! I love the idea of sitting down with the family and coming up with a summer list together. I’m definitely doing this with Zoe and E starting next year. For this summer, Zoe’s been pretty clear: library, splash pad, library, splash pad, library, splash pad. She has simple needs. 🙂
