summer break week #6

**My kids are currently on summer break. Like last year (see 2013's summer break activities here), I am planning to do one, fun activity with them every day. I will be documenting our various projects together and sharing them here on Saturday mornings and possibly more detailed projects within the week. Read more about how this project got started here.**

I kind of slacked with taking pictures this week. I took a few of our garden. We're making progress!
summer break week no. 6 summer break week no. 6 summer break week no. 6 summer break week no. 6summer break week no. 6  Day 34 (Saturday) we had a family movie night. We watched 1/2 of the movie Holes because it got late. We watched the second half on. . .
Day 35 (Sunday). In the evening, Jesse and I went out for date night, so our kids spent the evening with my parents, which they always enjoy.
Day 36 (Monday) we had a water balloon fight in the backyard. We all had a really good time.
Day 37 (Tuesday) they went to the library with my mom to watch the weekly performance.
Day 38 (Wednesday) we picked up Jesse early from work, had lunch, and went to a nearby pet shop. They wanted a bunny, and I said no. 
Day 39 (Thursday) we completed the bug patterned totes we started more than a week ago. I had intended to complete them that day, but the box marked with 3 totes only came with 2, so we had to wait. Anyway, I'm looking forward to sharing more details soon.
Day 40 (Friday) Jesse took them to the park to ride their scooters and play on the playground. Afterwards, we headed to Rite Aid for ice cream.

**Every Tuesday we go to the library and every Friday we get a frozen treat.
