Summer Bucket List

The end of this week will be the official start to our summer!  My last day of school is Friday.  I am looking forward to my days off with my own children.  We already have many activities that we all are looking forward to this summer!

Last summer I had mental bucket list, I never wrote it out and the kids did not really add to it.  This year I thought I would share it with all of you as well as blog about each of the adventures as they occur!  Our bucket list should keep us pretty busy this summer.  We are continually adding to it and making adjustments.  Which I believe is just fine.  It is a living document not set in stone, we may get everything done on it or may only get to half of it.  We may do one activity that leads us to another that was not on our list.  I am sure you know how one experience can make you think of something else.  I am sure we will make our best effort at each of this activities and will share our experiences along the way.


So without further ado, here is our summer bucket list for 2013



  • Go to the zoo  (we go often and love it…can not leave this off)
  • Take them to their very first movie – I found this for a very inexpensive way to try it out! Cinemark Summer Movie Club, they have location all over the United States!
  • Trip to Deanna Rose (free Mon-Thur)
  • Swimming (no summer list is complete without this)
  • Mini Golf
  • Weekly trip to the library and participate in the summer reading program
  • Camping in our backyard – kids idea
  • Go on a bike ride
  • Take a hike at the Parkville Nature Sanctuary
  • Make Homemade Popsicles
  • Catch fire flies -kids idea
  • Go fishing – kids idea, encouraged by daddy
  • Take the kids bowling for the first time – here is a link to sign up for 2 free games per day per kid!  Kids Bowl Free!
  • Road trip to Texas! This is the main thing the kids really want to do!

As you can tell we are going to keep pretty busy this summer!  We would love to hear about what is on your family’s summer buckets list.  Feel free to share in the comments section and if you have a post about your bucket list please share the link!
