Summer Bucket List
School is out, and summer is upon us!
This year, I decided to ask all of my family members to make a summer "bucket list". When I mentioned this to Hubs, he said something along the lines of, "Isn't a bucket list supposed to be things you want to do before you.....DIE?"
Regardless, I told him just to roll with it, and make one already!
I promised that I would not reveal which family members said what, and these are in no particular order of importance. I tried to focus on things we could do as an entire family, but also, for things the girls and I could do during the day while Hubs is at work.
I told them to try to keep their ideas inexpensive, but I did notice that some of them are a just a tad bit over my $10 or under limit. Some will definitely NOT be happening, but I was told that I had to put them on here anyway.
So.....without further ado.......here they are!
*Buy straws (Gee.... I wish they were all this easy!)
*Go to the zoo
*Visit the animal sanctuary (we will probably wait to do this until the end of summer when my in-laws are here)
*Swim as a family
*Look at pictures of when the girls were babies
*Go to the mall
*Tent outside in yard/woods or at a park
*Buy a hula hoop
*Work on projects for the fair (to see previous projects, you can go here)
*Make crafts from Pinterest
*Go to pawn shop
*Make paper mache
*Get a giant bottle of bubbles
*Have a nature scavenger hunt
*Visit particular friends who live far away
*Get a kitten (this will not be happening, but a girl can dream!)
*Have a spa day
*Make DIY beauty products
*Nail painting party
*Go to the beach
*Make different kinds of popsicles (especially these)
*Buy a canoe or paddle boat
*Family canoe/paddle boat excursion
*Family bike ride
*Try new hairstyles
*Buy things for the lake (inner tubes, etc.)
*Go to the library
*Take family picture on the beach, then print and hang it
*Go to family camp
*Go to a local park, take pictures, and feed the ducks
*Go to a water park
*Camping with friends
Since I have three girls, some of these ideas wouldn't work well with boys, but perhaps there are things listed here that you could do with your own family. I was surprised by how simple some of their requests were! Most of these do not cost a lot of money......just time.
This summer, why not ask your own family members what would be on their summer bucket list?
Their answers just may surprise you....
