The other night, my husband and I sat down and talked about the things that we want to do this summer. We’re so excited for the summer and all the fun things we’re going to be able to do as a family of four this year. Plus, since we have a toddler, it’ll be even more fun because we’ll be experiencing things for the first time again through her eyes. So excited! Here are some of the things we’d like to do this summer:
- Victoria Beach
My family has a cottage out at Victoria Beach, and I’m so excited to do all the things with my daughter there this year! We’ll go to the beach (obviously), go to the park, get ice cream at the Moonlight Inn, and get smiley face cookies at the bakery. It’s gonna be awesome!
- Assiniboine Park Zoo
We haven’t been to the zoo since the new Polar Bear exhibit opened last year, and I think it would be really fun to go. Especially with the Dinosaur exhibit there, too!
- Strawberry Picking
There are a few places nearby where you pay for the bucket, and you pick your own strawberries. I think it would be a lot of fun to do that with Autumn. I think she would really enjoy that.
- Andrew’s family cabin
It’ll be fun to see how Autumn likes the boat this year!
- Monarch Butterfly Festival
This event looks like so much fun!
The Icelandic Festival in Gimli! I’m so pumped for it. I haven’t been in a few years.
- Morden Corn and Apple Festival
A nearby town has an awesome festival every summer. You get free corn on the cob and free apple cider, and a bunch of other stuff! Again, I haven’t been in a few years so I’m excited to go again.
- Harry Potter Midnight Release Party
The last Harry Potter book came out almost 10 years ago, and McNally Robinson celebrated with a party in the park. Well, since the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is this summer, they’re doing it again! I’m so pumped to go to another midnight release. And I can’t wait to read the book 🙂
What are your plans for the summer?
