At the beginning of summer I created a to-do list of activities I wanted to complete this summer– I did okay by completing 14/25, more than half, yay! In my defense I still have a few weeks to go and technically summer lasts a LOT longer here in SoCal. Here’s a quick re-cap:
Kayaking: I had finally talked my boyfriend into kayaking and had plans to go over Labor Day weekend but it was just so. freaking. hot. We re-scheduled this to the end of this month.
Pizza on the Grill: Tried it, loved it –we’re making this again tomorrow night!
Weekend Trip: Visited Lake Mohave with the family, we’re going again for some lakeside camping in a couple of weeks!
