Summer Bucket List

(Destin, FL 2012)
Kevin and I finally sat down and wrote out all the things we'd like to do this month.  This definitely seemed more fun than working on a giant to do list :)  Obviously our summer will be filled with practical things like potty training (any and all tips would be VERY WELCOME!!), packing, prepping for a garage sale, cleaning and moving, but all that won't stop us from having FUN.  Here's what we're hoping to get to do for the next few months:

Our Summer 2015 FUN List
1. Get snow cones
2. Check out some new parks with playgrounds
3. Try new restaurants in our area 
and eat out our favorite spots in MS
4. Take Olive to The Children's Museum
5. Head to the beach once or twice
6. Squeeze in a Mississippi road trip
7. Grill out several times each week 
& try new grilling recipes
8. Let Olive play in the water as much as possible - her pool, water table, outdoor sink, sprinkler and a big pool.
9. Have a garage sale - making money will be fun :)
10. Read for fun
11. Head to Indiana for a visit
12. Date Nights at home with special food - cheese plates, ribeyes or a fun dessert
13. Figure out a summer story time to attend
14. Exercise together
15. Plan play dates or lunch dates with friends
16.  Donut dates
17.  Celebrate Kevin's birthday in July
18. Make cookies for our neighbors
19. Celebrate our 11th anniversary
20. Decorate Kevin's new office at ISU

  5. I love this! I feel like with work, daycare, and travel - there isn't a ton of time to knock off a whole bucket list. Maybe I should just quit work and play summer all season with Olivia. ;) Sounds like you guys have a great summer planned.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
