June Weekend Events: School’s Out for Summer! 06/01-03

Yay, School’s out for Summer! I’m so excited that we are out early for a change. It has been quite a few years since we’ve this and I am ready to have fun! I’m thinking about doing things like fishing, camping, cook outs, and of course, sleeping in! Along with those fun activities, I also want to do lots of spring cleaning, and my kids are not happy about it, but that is ok too…they will get over it! I’m ready to de-clutter and re-vamp that’s for sure.

What are some things that you do during the summer months? Share with us some of your ideas and activities, we would love to hear all about it.

Here are some happenings to help motivate you and have a great time as well with our Weekend events.
