Play Tag – Summer Bucket List Challenge (the end & giveaway)

I am SO sad to announce that The Great 2011 Summer Bucket List Challenge is officially over. All the Joyful Living submissions have been received, tweets have been noted, Facebook tags calculated, and blog links taken into account. I am pleased to announce that we have drawn the winner for our giveaway of the VERY FIRST Adventure in a Box: Fort Building Kit. And the winner is… Michelle Ocampo!!! We’ll be contacting you soon Michelle! Now, about our summer bucket list… we checked off everything on the list!! (Well, except for Go to the Drive In Movies, but we removed that one as soon as we found out they don’t start playing until 9 pm). Here’s a recap of our awesome summer:

And, I leave you with pictures of our last summer bucket list experience… playing tag. Max is still wearing a boot on his foot, so we had to piggy back him so he could play too. It was fun, but we didn’t last too long. It turns out playing tag is really tiring when you’re older than 10 years old 😉 family playing tag summer bucket listparents playing tag with kids
