Just like I believe Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer, Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of it. I can’t believe summer has come and gone.I thought I’d do a final review of my summer checklist and see how I fared in getting through my to do list. In my original to do list, I thought of 23 summer activities that I hoped to do before fall rolled around.
Bonfire/s’mores Oh well. I did do a bunch of additional warm weather activities that I never thought of while making the list. Over the Labor Day weekend, I headed to the Walworth County Fair. Goats, cows, emus, fried food and all.
I even tried a fair staple – deep fried Twinkies.
It wasn’t for me.For my friend Lauren’s birthday, we attended a classical concert in the park at Millennium Park.
I had a wonderful birthday party on our back patio.
I went to more Movies in the Park than I expected. Final count: 4 (Wizard of Oz, The Lorax, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, North by Northwest).
And we spent at least one morning each weekend at the dog beach.
I’d say I made the most of my summer. Did you?As my final nail in the summertime coffin, check back next week for a new to do list this fall!
