Aerate, top-dress and seed. I doubt you'll need to add a meal based fertilizer until the fall. Your biggest battle will be weed control.
I was going to purchase the manure from a mulching company. Should I get the bagged manure or bagged top dressing from the big box stores? When I core aerate I was going to gather plugs and the local agr. college will test soil. I was also going to seed after top dressing to fill in bare spots. I guess finding a good compost top dressing may be the difficult part.
