Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket List

We’re about halfway through the summer, and about halfway through our bucket list. Here’s a recap of some of our summer fun! ZOO TRIP We visit the zoo about once a year. It turns out, May is military appreciation month! As a veteran, Tim was free, I was half price as a spouse, and the kids are still young enough they’re free year round. Admission for our family of four was only about $7. This was quite the bargain, and made me feel better about getting our money’s worth since we only stay for a couple of hours. The kids can only hang until about noon before it’s just too hot and miserable. In true Phillips baby style, Smith slept his way through the entire zoo trip. Graydon did the exact same thing on his first zoo trip at 8 months old. Graydon loved seeing the giraffes the best, but eventually ended up in the stroller more interested in snacks. That’s when we knew it was time to go. BRACKENRIDGE EAGLE TRAIN Before going to the zoo, riding the train is a must. This was Smith’s first time on the train, and he absolutely loved it! This sweet boy is always up for adventure with all smiles across his face. Graydon has ridden the train 3 summers now, and was all talk up to the point of boarding the train. The furrowed brows and sulky face took over for the entire ride. It was a little loud with conductor’s voice booming over the speaker right above us. I gotta laugh at the bottom left photo. Nothing says #momlife more than one...
