I was going to have my hernia operation last June, but the surgeon was on summer hiatus

Last summer I took on a big challenge, 100 Acts of Summer Awesomeness!  At that point, I had a just barely 1 year old and a 3 year old and I wanted to make sure I enjoyed a deliberate summer with them.  It was a challenge, but lots of fun.  As we’re approaching the summer months, I thought I would re-publish the list of fun we had, in case you are looking for some awesomeness for your summer!!  Stay tuned for this year’s summer adventure.
