My family didn't make it but maybe three days into our summer vacation and I started to hear, "Mom, I'm bored...there is nothing to do!"  
Seriously, three days!  This is rediculous and I will go crazy if I have to listen to it all summer long.  So here is a list I am giving my kids.  They can't complain to me about having nothing to do unless they have checked off everything on this list!  Feel free to print it for your crew as well!  

*   Play Hide and seek
*    Jump on the Trampoline

Welcome to the The Ultimate Linky's Twitter Party!

Thanks for coming and linking up here to the Twitter Linky Party! You can come back here every week on Tuesday for this whole summer to get more followers on twitter! Our goal is to grow this party so that there will be new people linking up every week so that you can continue to get new followers! There are two linkies in this party! You can do just one or both linkies if you wish. On the first linky, you will link up your Twitter URL for your Twitter account so that you can be followed. On the second linky, link up the URL of a tweet you would like to be retweeted. Please follow me and Tammy from The Ultimate Linky on Twitter, add the button to your sidebar or party page, and then link up and follow the directions for who to follow/retweet! If you are the last three to link up, your links will be manually added to the beginning of next week's link-up so that you get your follows. You can always follow more if you decide to! We also would love any shares that you could give to help spread the word about this party!
The Ultimate Linky
You can also link up one tweet that you would like to have re-tweeted. This is the same concept as above except you only have to tweet the two links above yours. I will make sure I tweet the last link(s). Social media parties every day of the week!
