We were crazy enough to say "Yes" to our 4 four year old quadruplet boys being in a wedding. Surprisingly, with some planning and practice it went off without a hitch. My biggest tips were talking through the event - what to expect, how to behave, consequences of not behaving, etc. well before the ceremony starts. We reserve bribing for big deal events like this one - so the wedding cake and a Dollar Store surprise for the wedding reception were waiting for those who did their best. Take snacks and quiet activities to hold them over if things go longer than expected, and plan an escape path if necessary!

What are some fun activities to put on a summer "bucket list" for your kids? Please link to a picture if you have one.

Jennifer Murray

Our summer bucket list involves the best playground of all - THE GREAT OUTDOORS! This summer I'm encouraging my quadruplet boys to get outdoors by being prepared with 50 outdoor activities at my finger tips with the ebook KidVentures. Each activity is detailed with supply lists, resources, tips, and step-by-step instructions that even the indoor moms can grasp! So excited to carpe diem this summer and make lasting memories with my family!
