What do you do? Do you stay home? do you go away?
Any favorite games/ideas you like to share?
How about photo opportunities for the summer?

My kids are pretty easy to please. They just love to play outside-biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, nerf gun wars, etc. Occasionally we go to the park for a change of scenery. And we have annual passes to a lot of places around the island and usually go hit those spots at least once each time the kids are off track (zoo, Polynesian Cultural Center, Waimea Falls, Wet N Wild Water Park, Bishop Museum, etc)
When in doubt... we head to the beach
We have no specific travel plans this summer but I wouldn't be opposed to an island hop as a family over to the Bis Island or Maui If we had some extra $$ laying around we'd head to Disneyland. I think my kids are at the perfect age to totally love it now

We are fairly busy in the summer....my older son still has baseball for a couple weeks and he is on a swim team which practices and has meets through the end of July. My younger son is taking a couple weeks of swim lessons....much to his displeasure!
In between all that we like to play in the water in the backyard, go to the zoo or nature center, or the swimming hole at the lake. Really, they just like to have downtime in the summer and play with their friends!

I have some concerts to look forward to here in Gothenburg. It started with Green Day yesterday. A big metal festival in two weeks where Rammstein is one of the headlining acts. American singer/pianist Melody Gardot is next in line in July!
My husband and I are going to try to spend some more time at our summerhouse this summer than we've had time for the last 5 or 6 years...
My best friend Sussie and I are planning to start touring Swedish castles, great estates and medieval churches this summer! We're gonna do daytrips when our schedules and weather permits!
Summer will (probably) end with a week's vacation to the island of Rhodes, Greece, at the very end of August with my husband!

No wonder you made a collection with burst water balloons Trish! Oh how fun. We've got years of photos with squirt guns... which would be an awesome add on to your Heat Wave Collection...I'm talkin' 'bout the big squirt guns.

The other biggie is the 4-H fair in July. The family may be running a 5K or two together also.

On rainy days, we've been enjoying picnics in the living room. Complete with a blanket on the floor. My preschooler especially thinks this is great fun!
We've been to the zoo already, and plan on going to Sesame Place this week.
