I can taste it. You think I am kidding, but after 10 years in the classroom, summer has a taste, it has a smell, it fills the senses and it creates a sense of euphoria that every single teacher I know feels. Summer is almost here and to celebrate, I want to share our plans for this summer and I want to give one reader some cash to enjoy the summer too!
This school year has been a little blah for me. Not because of students or classes, but just because sometimes you have those years as a teacher where you just feel like you weren’t your best, you weren’t your worst and you are just ready to start fresh next year. As this year winds down, our family is looking forward to some incredible summer fun and I know nearly everyone else is too!
If you have been following along here, you have seen that we purchased a gorgeous new camping trailer and we already have 3 trips lined up to enjoy this beautiful home away from home! Our first is just a few days after school gets out and we are biting at the bit to get going. We already unpacked our old trailer and are prepping to sell it, while we are making ourselves at home in the new one! Everyone is extremely ready to get away, laugh, and enjoy some amazing time together!
Elitch Gardens has been a part of my life since I was a kid. It has been a Denver destination for 100 years and we are very excited to have a few summer trips there! After Disneyland last year, my kids are up for more roller coasters, more thrills and a ton of laughs.
You can’t go to a theme park without going to a water park too! Of course we will be joining forces with Water World this summer to check out their new attractions and make even more memories.
Everyday our daughter asks to go to the museum and the zoo. Well kids those memberships are renewed and you can bet we will be spending a day each week with some wild animals, wild kids and wild history! Gotta check on that “triceratops“!
Beyond those excursions, we just plan on spending time relaxing, watching movies, taking our sweet time at the grocery store, swimming and playing in our yard. I know many families plan to do the same, so I thought I would celebrate almost summer with a little $50.00 giveaway. The winner can choose to get the money via Paypal or a Target gift card or a Walmart gift card! I figure for $50.00 you can purchase tickets outdoor games, tickets to a movie or some other fun for your family! Entries are EASY so do it now!
