Summer Bucket List 2018

Ahhh Summer. I can't believe I'm about to type this but... I think I might like Summer even more than fall. There's just something about sunshine, patio sitting, snow cones, and being outside, despite the sweltering temperatures, that makes me giddy.

Every Summer I like to create a bucket list of things we want to do and experience while also trying to not let the Type A in me take over and stress about getting everything checked off. It's my goal this Summer to really try and be a little more laid back and embrace later bedtimes, missed baths, and spontaneous late night ice cream runs. Here's what else we plan to do.

//Explore 3 new (to us) parks//
Whether they're playground parks or state parks, there's a lot we haven't been to. 

//Pizza by the Pool//
The boys won't have to leave the pool and I won't have to make dinner so everybody wins. 

//Camp in our living room//
We've done this several years now and it's always a hit.

//Try as many flavors of snow cones as possible//
I like to keep this one on our list. You can never have too many snow cones. 

//Go one day without technology//
All of us. I may have lost my mind. 

//Create the perfect S'Mores bar and make them with friends//
I'm looking at you Reese's Cup. 

//Go Berry Picking//
We've got an appointment scheduled at our favorite spot.

//Visit the farmer's market//

//Enroll in the Summer reading program at our library//
Always a fun way to get your kids to read.
//Grill the perfect steak//
Who says only guys can grill?

//Watch a movie at the Drive In//

//Have a night-time swim party//
Complete with glow sticks.

//Visit the state fair//

//Kids cook dinner//
Mom and dad are taking the night off and it's up to the boys to whip up something to eat (under supervision of course).

//30 Outfits in 30 Days//
Starting tomorrow I'm participating in a 30 day challenge where I don't re-wear the same outfit or buy any new clothes for 30 days. Check out tomorrow's 5 on Friday for more details. 

//Make homemade ice cream//
I still haven't used my Kitchen Aid Mixer attachment and it's about time. 

Let me know if I'm missing something that you and your family usually do during the Summer! I'd love to add it to our list!
