Weekend Planner

What We're Doing:
  • 5 Borough Bagels. A new bagel place in Clive, Iowa and it looks delicious!
  • 31 Parks in 31 Days. I figure we might as well give it a try even though we're at the end of July. If nothing else, we'll give the minis a memory of "remember that time our insane parents took us to 31 parks in a matter of days??"
Other Things To Do:

  • Set up an obstacle course in the backyard. The neighborhood kids will love your house. Get some ideas here
  • Make Watermelon Popsicles. I made these for daycare this week and the kids thought they were amazing! Use cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the watermelon. Put the watermelon shape on a stick, lay on a baking sheet (with wax paper on the baking sheet), and put in the freezer. Eat when frozen. It's a great way to keep the kids hydrated too
  • Have a water balloon and/or a squirt gun fight
  • Swim in a swimming hole. On vacation in the Smoky Mountains, we swam in so many swimming holes. It was a blast!

Happenings In Des Moines:
  • Clive Fest
  • Clive Fire Department slip n' slide. Massive slip n' slide near the Clive Aquatic Center (Free, Saturday 1 - 5 p.m.)
