We LOVE visiting museums. We are lucky to live in/nearby a large city that has tons to offer in the way of museums. Summer here is the perfect time to visit them because it is SO hot. We recently visited the Children's Museum of Phoenix since we hadn't been in a while. I wasn't sure how the boys would like it since they were a bit younger when we came the last time. When we walked in and saw this
I love printables. I think it's the instant gratification of getting something you found online immediately (as long as you have a printer, ink, and paper of course). Here are some fun games and activities I've seen online recently. Keep these on hand for some of those summer "I'm bored" moments.

I don't know about you all, but here in AZ we've already had a 118ºF day. We do have some scorching summers so if we're playing outside (voluntarily) it involves water! Here are some fun activities we've found.
p>Happy Fort Friday! Some fun forts to share this week (as usual) I also have a challenge for you. Build a fort with your boys (girls too) this week and send me your picture (and/or link to your blog post) so that next Fort Friday we can feature reader forts! Hopefully this will encourage you to play a bit this week :) We'll play along too!
My friend Jaime from Three Paper Peonies (a digital scrapbooking design company) posted this on her blog and I had to share it here. She broke the glass out of an IKEA frame and instead of throwing the frame away decided to use it as a 3D Lego art display - displaying whatever latest creation her little guy makes.
SUCH a good idea Jaime! I'm definitely going to be incorporating some version of this onto our walls!
Yep, I am so going there. Fart, toot, cut the cheese, pass gas, breaking wind, flatulence, whatever you want to call it I have yet to meet a boy who doesn't think it's funny. Living in a house with 3 boys you quickly learn to find the humor in bodily functions. If you want to be the life of a boy party teach them this fun "trick". My brother (ok maybe me too) did this when we were younger and the boys learned at a friends' house from a neighbor.
