I can't believe the summer is coming to an end....it feels like it just started. Maybe that is because summer didn't start in New England until the last week of July and only lasted a month!!! No I am not bitter :).
This has been a fun and jam packed summer, filled with many "Adventures". I have tried so hard to make it special for Z and I think I succeeded. So it is time to revisit my Summer Adventure List that I created in May and see how I did ;)
So here is our Summer Adventure list :)
Adventures With Z
1. Space Adventure--trip to the Planetarium--Did this one with Daddy!
