Nothing says summer like an icy cold glass of Coke and family fun. One thing about the Shibley’s is we are a tight net family. When it comes to fun we do it together as a family. Unfortunately just because it is summer doesn’t mean our days are open to do whatever we want. The hubby and I still have to get up and go to work each day. The kids however, need things to do other then being stuck in the house. That is why we try to plan some fun activities. This summer I think we did a good job of having some #bestsummermoments with the kids from vacations to local fun.
This summer was full of firsts. One of our most exciting and best summer moments this summer was on our recent Carnival Cruise. Since this just took place I’m still working on telling you all about it, however here is a photo that says it all. A family having fun!
Another fun trip we took this summer was a weekend in Orlando. We were up in the area to attend a fun press trip at Sea World in honor of the new Antarctica : Empire of the Penguins . We turned the trip into a family vacation and though we are not strangers to Orlando it was our first time visiting Sea Worlds Aquatica. Everyone had a great time and we are hoping to go back again. We only spent half of the day due to our prior engagement so we wold love to return to enjoy the whole park. Even half a day turned it into one of our #bestsummermoments.
Both of these fun summer moments are perfect for the hot Florida weather, a breezy cruise and a water park. However sometimes summer is best inside, especially when we have heavy rain and thunderstorms like we did just this past weekend. Hubby and I were trapped in Walmart for 15-20 minutes waiting for the rain to stop so we could get our groceries to the car. So this weekend (which was also my son’s 16th birthday), we had some fun family time in doors at our local bowling alley. My oldest son is on his school’s bowling team and we just find this an inexpensive (with Kids Bowl Free) day of family time.
The first game was great for most of us, Bud (my oldest son) had some problems with his ball, turns out he has grown and we need to get the thumb hole re-drilled, he was not a happy camper. Honey for the first time got a score above 100 and Dad got four strikes in a row! It is times like this that we really have a great time bonding and having fun!
