Summer Activities and Great Photo Opportunity

I decided to compile a list of spring/summer activities for the times when I can't think of what we should do and/or pictures to take. They are really very simple and a great way to enjoy and spend family time. We have even already checked off a few from the list! I will repost this in a month or so and hopefully with a few more crossed off the list.

The original, complete list can be found at Willete Designs' 100 Summer Photo Opportunities.
