Summer Bucket List and Cookie Fun

Miss Sophie is attending Cheer leading Camp this week and she is enjoying EVERY SINGLE minute of it. Each morning, she wakes up, gets dressed, and skips downstairs excited about the day ahead. She is learning all sorts of cute cheers and can't wait to get to camp for more fun each day!
 Sunday night, (the evening before camp began) I quickly realized Sophie didn't have ANY shorts to wear in the morning. Seriously, this girl (actually BOTH girls) ONLY wear dresses, skirts, or ruffle pants;) Thankfully we had one pink and white polka dotted skort that would get us through the first day, but after that, we were toast;)
So after I picked Sophie up from camp on Monday, we headed to Target to buy some play clothes for the rest of the week. We walked into the store and she immediately fell in love with that hot pink outfit she's wearing in that top right picture. (The one where she looks 16---yeah that's the one)
 She couldn't wait to wear that outfit to camp on Tuesday morning, that she actually slept in it the night before; )

On another note, the kids and I made a summer bucket list this year. Each ice cream cone has a fun idea or exciting summer outing written on the back of it.
 Every morning, the kids run down stairs, pull off an ice cream cone, and discover what's in store for them that day.  
Some days they are in for a big adventure, and then others are just a simple activity. 
Yesterday, we celebrated "National Sugar Cookie Day" (yup, there's such a thing, HA!) by baking and decorating yummy sugar cookies.
 Both Corban and Sophie each had friends over for the afternoon, so it was great having them there to  participate in the decorating too!
A simple, but FUN way to spend a summer afternoon.

Ha Ha, I ran into the same "problem" with Isabelle -- no shorts! Miss Sophie looks adorable as ever in her pink cheerleading cute! And I LOVE the summer list with the element of surprise! So creative! Enjoy all the festivities! =)

Your summer bucket list is such a wonderful idea! I'm going to borrow that idea when my little one is old enough to enjoy it. Love all the creative things you do with your children!
