Summer bucket list!

It’s that time again….time to plan out our summer!

I sat down the other day and thought to myself, “how in the heck am I going to entertain these kids ALL summer?”

So here is a beginning to our bucket list:
Getty museum
-take a train
-movies in the park
-swim lessons
-make kool-aid play dough
Griffith observatory
-getaway in Palm Springs
Los Angeles arboretum
Weiner races at Los Alamitos race track
regal cinemas summer movies

Here is last years’ summer bucket list:)
