Bucket lists. You can love them or hate them. I personally love them. (I love lists.) I wrote my first list last June and had a really fun couple of months checking things off. The great thing about a list like this? It’s fun to work towards your summer goals.
Last year, my bucket list included a trip to the NC Zoo, a camping trip and a beach vacation (among many other things.) We had a blast, and I’m hoping to do similar trips this summer. I also know what my family enjoys doing, and what wasn’t worth the hassle.
This year, we want to try the following:
1. Visit Splasheville (our local splash pad.) We barely got there last year because it was closed most of the summer.
2. Visit family in New York.
3. Pick a lot of blueberries (and for that matter, vegetables from the garden.)
4. Celebrate our boy’s 4th birthday.
5. Do a day trip to Grandfather Mountain.
6. A beach trip. (I think this is imperative every year.)
7. Run another 5k (maybe two) with my boy.
8. Complete several craft projects. (I’m slacking on my #15in15 project!)
9. Get the boy to ride a bike. He is hesitant on the tricycle in the yard. I need to figure out how to make him more comfortable with riding.
10. A “yes” day. There are a few opportunities for this, and I think it could be fun for everyone involved.
So here’s to a fun-filled summer!
What is on your list of things to do this summer?
