Countdown to Summer

It's almost here. I'm so excited about swimming, grilling out, running through the sprinkler and the long lazy days of summer. You'd think I was a student getting out of school for the summer. Still, I always look forward to Memorial Day weekend as the kickoff to a great summer season. What are your plans for the summer?

Many plan road trips and the Salch family is no different, although I'm a bit sour about the price of gas. One thing we started was a family song for car rides. Our song is by James Taylor and is called something like "Jelly Man." None of us knows all the words. I have to still look up the words online. However, we shout and throw our heads and hands about the car like a spastic octopus. You can't hold back the laughter. What's your family song?

Until the next nap time...

It's great to meet a fellow Houston blogger! I've got an 18-month old and a 3-yr. old so we'll be sticking close to home this summer but taking advantage of the library storytime and we'll go to StrollerFit class as well. I'm blogging at and I found your blog because my friend just gave me your book on 100+ Activities for Houston Kids - what a great resource!
