Aloha Friday =)

Photobucket

It's that time again, Aloha Friday! Check out Kailani over at IslandLife808 for info on Aloha Friday and link up with your own question.

My question to you is, What Is One Thing You Want To Do Before The Summer Is Over?

For me I want to do several things, but the biggest is to get away with my family to the beach. We are heading to SoCal the end of this month to stay with my FIL/SMIL for 4 days. They live about 30 minutes from Oceanside and the ocean is my Happy Place =). We will drive over on Friday morning, that will put us at their house in the afternoon, probably around 3. We will have a bbq and swim at the inlaws house that night then most likely the next day will be the Wildlife Zoo or San Diego Zoo. The next day will be all beach. We will head to the beach in the morning with our lunch packed and some beach toys and will stay all day. The next day we will have to head home, probably shortly after breakfast. It will be a short vacation, but a vacation all the same!

We will actually be taking two trips before the summer is over hopefully. The beach this month and then in early September we are planning on getting back to Mt Vernon Iowa where my hubs is from. His mom passed away in January of this year and we are still closing out her accounts and dealing with her estate so we haven't been able to have her memorial yet. She was cremated the day after she passed and her ashes or on a bookshelf in the house now. We were hoping to have her memorial in May, but that didn't happen so now we are aiming for September because all of her estate should be dealt with by the end of this month. It won't be a super fun getaway in Iowa, but it will be nice to see friends and family. Hannah has never been to Iowa and most of the family has never met her...or me for that matter and we have been married over 5 years!

Anyway, that is what I want to do before the summer is over, how about you?

  1. One is travel to see the family which we'll do soon. Another is to visit a local lake or state park with the kids.

  2. Before the summer is over I want to finish cleaning the upstairs room. We have said it was going to be the playroom and it never quite took off. With a portable AC up there we need to get in gear and do it. Another thing is I would like to travel to another Six Flags park to use our season passes at another location.

  17. Hmmm.
    I'd like to pay off some of my bills. Seriously. But I don't see that happening, lol. IF I had some extra cash, I'd like to take my kids n a road trip to the east coast. Maine, Boston. (and my husband too, only I won't let him drive this trip after our trip out west.) :)
