It’s hot, the twins are here, and we’re right in the middle of our summer! Let’s get to our summer bucket list:
Read 50 books - 14 books read so far
Have an appetizer night ✓ - Instead of grilling out for the Fourth of July, we did an appetizer night! Crab rangoon, shrimp cocktail, pumpernickel pretzel pouches, jalapeno poppers, garlic zucchini, watermelon, blueberry lemon upside down cake, Reese’s PB cup cheesecake bites, and hushpuppies.
Tie Dye Shirts
Weekend trip to the Cosmosphere
Try 3 ice cream places 2/3
Coneflower - Oh so yum! I got Rhubarb Crisp, Arthur and Quentin got Dark Chocolate, Alex got Mint Choc Chip, and J got Coffee, Mint Choc Chip, and White Choc and Basil. I think the winner was Coffee.
Ted and Wally’s - A favorite in Old Market! I got Almond Joy, Arthur and Alex got vanilla, Quentin got chocolate, and J got Guiness and Fudge Brownie German Chocolate.
Go on 5 picnics
Visit an outdoor cinema
Go to 3 movies 1/3

Run through the sprinklers/splash pad ✓ - We bought a sprinkler for the backyard. The boys love it!

Try 2 new-to-me restaurants 2/2 ✓
Barchen - J and I had a date night at this German beer hall and restaurant. Food wasn’t amazing, but beer was good.
Yum Roll - We had dinner at the fancy food court and I tried the Korean BBQ bowl. Decent, but I think the taco place next door is better.
Visit Hollywood Candy in Old Market ✓ - Lots of fun stopping in after lunch in Old Market one day. I loved all the crazy items thrown into the store. The boys got a basket of candy to last for the rest of the summer.
