Just thought I’d post my “brainstorm” of summer fun activities. Of course, some of the items are specific to the St. Tammany/New Orleans area – but they might give you some ideas for things to do with your own children. I want to do a lot of relaxing this summer, however, I also want to spend more time playing with my kids – they are growing up tooooo fast!!!
