2013 Summer Bucket List

Last week, I tasked myself with creating a summer bucket list, of sorts, full of fun things to do with the kids. Especially on those summer days when we were bored, and tired of doing the same old routine.

So here -- our summer bucket list!!

  • Make homemade lemonade 
  • Play with the sprinklers
  • Make tie-dyed shirts
  • Get the kids sparklers for the 4th of July
  • Go to the splash pad in Kinston
  • Get shaved ice 
  • Have a picnic at the park
  • Fly our kites
  • Go camping 
  • Tucker Lake 
  • Make S'mores
  • Watch Fireworks 
  • The Talking Forest 
  • Cliffs of the Neuse
  • Make ice cream sundaes
  • Pullen Park 
  • Hit up a fruit stand and buy our daily snack fresh! 
  • Go to a Petting zoo/farm
  • Spend the weekend with friends
  • Take the fishing boat out on the pond 
  • Make giant bubbles
  • Make it a point to get outside 30 minutes every day, even in the rain
  • Center Street Jam 
  • The Children's Museum 
  • Make homemade ice cream and popsicles
  • Feed ducks 

Hopefully this little list will give us some fun activities on the weekends when M is home from work, and even during the week, when we find ourselves wanting something fun and different! 

What activities are you looking forward to the most this summer?!
