Summer Bucket List With Kellogg’sMay 21st

Summer is *almost* here. After Christmas break, I dreaded the coming of summer. Why? Because it meant no school, and without school, I’m left with a very busy little girl who needs constant activity.
But now that it’s *almost* here, I’m excited. I’m excited to have days of relaxation and adventure in equal parts. Having a husband in grad school has its perks. One of them being that he has summers off, too. We’ve come up with a short bucket list of weekly activities we want to enjoy with our kids.
It’s fun to think that they are now at ages (with the exception of Tenny) when they will retain memories for life. I want this summer to be full of sweet, simple days spent outdoors as much as possible. Living two miles from the beach means that we are going to be there almost every day. Yay!
While I’m excited to not have to think about packing school lunches, I know that having three kids at home means I will be hustling to keep everyone fed and content. Beach days and pool days call for easy, ready-to-go food options.
My kids absolutely love Kellogg’s Cereal In A Cup as a fun, easy meal or snack. They like being able to just pick their cereal, peal the label, and pour their own milk. It’s a hassle-free solution for me on busy mornings. Additionally, Kellogg’s Cereal In A Cup is the perfect accompaniment for many of our summer activities. Here’s how we plan to use them:

1.) Movie marathon days. Alright, I’d be lying if I didn’t mention the fact that we will totally have days spent vegging out in front of the TV. I plan several marathons including Toy Story 1, 2, and 3, and Lord of the Rings. Maybe some Harry Potter and *hopefully* (if I get my hands on it) Anne of Green Gables. We’ll be snacking on Froot Loops 😉
Movie marathons2
  2.) As a quick, fun snack to throw in the backpack for family hikes. Side note: we’re still working on this whole hiking with kids thing. Sometimes they get a little tired and whiny. Shiny snacks help :)
family hikes
  3.) For long, lazy mornings spent in bed snuggling. I am so looking forward to not having to be ready at 7:45 every morning! Cheers for staying in jammies and snuggling warm babies.
long mornings in bed
  4.) Long days at the pool. Don’t you just love how the pool tires out kids? And guess what? We have a water baby on our hands! Tenny LOVES being in the water. We got this cute little floatie and he is happy as a clam in it. We’ll be packing our pool bag with lots of goodies (including Cereal In A Cup) for long days by the water.

5.)On long beach days for a quick, yummy snack. An added bonus (if you ask my kids) is that they can use the cup to assist in making sand castles.

So there you have it. Our easy, totally fun summer bucket list. If you want to copy me, I won’t tell 😉 Buy your 4-pack Kellogg’s Cereal In A Cup at Walmart for just $3.88!

    We’re making the most out of our summer by taking our son on a lot of zoo and park trips.

    So far summer hasn’t officially started for one of my kids since she opted, voluntarily, to do 2 weeks of summer school. Usually we spend a ton of time outdoors and at the beach during the summer so once school is out completely for her that’s where we’ll be.
