Summer Bucket List

School is out and summer is officially here! For the past couple of summers, I have made a Summer Bucket List for our family (a list of fun places to visit/activities to accomplish during the summer). Each year our summer bucket list gets a little longer because my daughter gets a little older, and is able to do more activities. My family loves to run around and get out of the house on the weekends, and this a fun reminder of things to do around our town. We keep our summer bucket list on a chalkboard in our kitchen, and my little one gets to ‘check off’ the activity as we complete it. Sometimes we accomplish 3 activities in one day, and sometimes we won’t do any. I truly believe it doesn’t have to be an expensive activity to be a fun and memorable activity.
