WOO HOO! It’s finally here!
It is the first Official week of Summer and we are ushering it in with the first ever
Blogger Block Party!
I am even going to be getting some warm (FINALLY!) summer weather here in the
Northwest this week
so I couldn’t be happier!
Kiddos home from school + day after day of rain =
grumpy mommy restlessness and lots of time outs.

We are kicking off this rockin’ Block Party here at the Fence with a Summer Activity for Kids I did last week with my kids which not only helped fight the “I’m Bored Disease”, but also got us outside and running around!
Now, let me just tell you that we do indoor scavenger hunts all the time at our house.
When you live where it rains a lot you have to get creative.
And a scavenger hunt is a great way to keep your kids
out of your hair happily occupied for awhile.
I have even been known to hide pennies around the house in a moment of desperation!
But in the summer, we take the fun Outdoors!
I started by purchasing these galvanized metal buckets from Lowes.
The size was just perfect for little hands while also providing plenty of room for holding all of the treasures!
That would be because I could NOT get the boys to stand still long enough to snap their photo.
every corner of this Block?
That is a total of 13 Giveaways!
Now, who’s ready to party with us?! Here’s how it works!
Link up your themed related post(s) on each blog as it goes live on their party day. Your links will appear on all twelve blogs that are hosting the party as their posts go public! That means your posts will appear simultaneously on all of our blogs once you have linked them up and will be there throughout the party! You are welcome to share as many summer posts as you like related to the themes…and trust us there’s a theme for everything! That’s it. Just find a theme related to your post during the week and link up to it…for one HUGE link party!”
