what do you want to do on summer vacation?

Summer vacation. Three months of endless possibilities. I know what I want to do during my summer vacation. The list looks a little something like this:
  • run
  • swim
  • bike
  • go to Busch Gardens
  • take a kid-free vacation (totally happening in less than a month!)
  • visit my mom and J's parents
  • relax
  • NOT GO INSANE

I had hoped that the girls would have wish lists that matched up with mine. But when I asked them yesterday what they hoped to do this summer, here's what they told me ...

Dilly (age 1):

  • dada
  • mama
  • nana
  • nose
  • muah
  • shoe
  • AHHHHHHH! (I think that's code for get me out of here!)

Dizzle (age 5):

  • go to the beach
  • go to Grandma and Grandpa's
  • go to Mimi's
  • go to Great-Grandma's
  • play with you and Dilly (but apparently not Doodle)

Doodle (age 3):

  • go to the slushie place (Sonic)
  • go to Target
  • go to the playground
  • go to the Singing Dog Store (Tom Leonard's - a grocery store)
  • go to the shirt store (I have no clue about this one)
  • go to the slushy place. When we gonna go? It's summer vacation already. Let's go.

Obviously, my children have their priorities in line. Dilly wants to say the six words that she knows and to scream. Dizzle wants to spend time with her family. And Doodle wants to drink slushies and spend Daddy's money. You know, on second glance, their lists don't look half bad ...

Good to know that my priorities line up with a 3 year old! I want to drink slushies and spend Hubbs money, OH wait! He's without a job right now. He might be thinking of spending MY money! Good thing he doesn't really like slushies! ;-)

I like slushies! I always see the commericals for Sonic, but sadly none in NorCal :(
Yay for a kid-free vacay! Nice! Where ya going? Hope it invloves running!
And, I want a job that gives me a summer vacation - I just don't know which accountant gets to do that!

EricaH said...

i would add kid and husband free weekend, i need a girls weekend asap. and the kiddos list are to cute got me tempted to ask my girls what their list would look like, I sure it would boil down to spending lots of daddy's money. :)

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Love the lists. Yours looks a lot like mine and my 4-year-old's is a mix of Dizzle's and Doodle's.

By the way, good luck on your 5K. You will do great!!
