The Return of the Summer of Awesomeness To Do List

     After starting a mama movement yesterday, I took the Evil Genius for a long walk at a local state park.  When he finally stopped complaining about being pulled away from video games (it only took a mile and a half), we could get down to business.  Today is June 1st.  Summer is practically upon us.  So together, we began drafting this year's Summer of Awesomeness To Do List.

     For those of you who missed it, the original Summer of Awesomeness To Do List came about during the week following the Boston Marathon Bombings last year, when I was in Rwanda and the Evil Genius found himself basically stuck in the house during his school vacation week.  You can read about it hereand here,  oh, and here.  Here, too! This one is a bit silly.  I am deadly serious about this one.  There's pressure to top this.  And finally, there is this.

So far we are going to shoot for:

  • Getting the kayaks out on the ocean, because somehow, we never did last summer.
  • Going strawberry picking.
  • Making jelly after we get back from strawberry picking.
  • The Evil Genius wants to get a job, because boats are really just holes in the water a boy pours money into, and the Evil Genius is sorely addicted to having a boat.
  • The Evil Genius will be returning to Popham Beach with his best friends.
  • The FabFam will reunite on the Cape again in August with all the awesomeness that goes with it.
  • My Personal Chef and I hope to experiment with espaliering apple trees along our garden fence.
  • Thing 1 will be feted at TWO graduation parties--one at the lakehouse in NH.  One here at home.
  • Thing 2 hopes to move out into his first apartment.
  • I want to take the GRE so I can return to graduate school.  Again.
  • Trekking to Tanglewood.  It's one of the FabFam's happy places.
  • Pulling together the Second Annual Family Photoshoot Fandango.
  • Getting to at least 3 museums.
  • Hiking 5 new trails.
  • Trying out at least 3 new restaurants in Boston, Worcester, and Providence.
There is sure to be more added as we go along. Drafting the list is part of the fun.  What's on your list?
