Summing up Summer Fun

We kicked off the summer by going to  Grandma and Grandpa's house as soon as school ended.    Then Disney, Epcot, & Magic Kingdom were our next stop.  When we came back we got together with some friends and went to Whetstone Chocolate Factory.  The Cisco Kid spent two weeks in Drama Camp for the first time and loved every minute of it.  Then we went to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The main purpose of going back to Disney was so we could go and see the American Idol live Concert,  We got back and immediately started Vacation Bible School Camp.   We went to the movies a couple of times with some friends and saw Mr. Popper's Penguins and The Smurfs.  We had a Phineas and Ferb movie play date, a few fishing play dates, two pool play dates, and our last play date went out with a bang at the beach with some friends.  Believe it or not The Cisco Kid and I spent some quality time together.  We went to the movies and we re-painted his room.  He wanted the characters to be changed to surf boards, guitars and motorcycles.  I will post about his room soon.

All the highlighted activities are links to those particular posts. The following post will complete Summer Fun play dates.

This is the wonderful time we had going to Life is a bowl of Cherry's house to watch the Phineas and Ferb movie. The Little Rascals set up their comfortable blankets, grabbed some stuffed toys and watched the movie.
As soon as the movie was over they were ready for some cupcakes. 
As the little rascals watched the movie it gave the adults time to play Rummikub. 
Extreme taught The Cisco Kid how to fish. They went fishing for about two hours three different days. The first day, Extreme caught a fish. The Second day they did not catch a thing. Day three The Cisco Kid caught a fish and Extreme caught crabs. They were so happy!
It was so hot I thought it would be a good idea if they went in the river.  They didn't want to stay in very long. 
The Cisco Kids prize catch! 
When they were done fishing they came back to the house and went swimming.  When they were done I had them sit down and do some summer homework on IXL Math.   
A pool play date with the little Rascals.
The Community pool where The Cisco Kid's friend lives. 
Florida has the most beautiful beaches on the east coast and we live approximately thirty minutes away and we hardly get there. We finally got a chance to go with some friends and the kids had a great time spending the day playing in the water and sand.

On the way to the beach we stoped off and got the Cisco Kid a Waive Runner because the girl's were bringing theirs. 
This looks scary, all those large waives building in front of him.  I was wondering if they will curl on him and drag him under.  He had no fear.  But I was not too worried. The Chief did a great job teaching him how to handle the waves.  He had a lot of experience from going to Typhoon Lagoon's waive pool.
There is nothing like a beach day with plenty of sand toys.
Some funny home moments.  
We went shopping and after we unloaded all the groceries The Cisco Kid started to build with paper bags. 
This was a great summer and I'm a little sad that it is over.
