Summer Bucket List

Summer time is finally upon us!! Well actually, by now, it's almost 1/3 of the way over!
I love all the fun things that summer time brings, the longer days, warmer weather, carnivals, festivals, cool summer treats, holidays, fireworks, vacations and so on and so forth.  It is just a fabulous season!

Before the weather warmed up and the schools let out I attended an enrichment meeting my friend Angie put together.  She had created a summer bucket list of 200 things to do durning the summer.  What a wonderful resource!  I have done through and picked the ones that I would like to do this summer and have made my own 2012 Summer Bucket List!

I have listed the activities I picked below and will blog about each one highlight them on the list below when I complete them! Some are BIG and some are small, but all would contribute to a wonderful summer time!  Bring on the good times!

If you would like to do any of these activities with me then let me know and I will make it happen! The more the merrier.

  1. Hahaha. That's quite the list! But if anyone can do it, you can! I wish I could come do some of them with you. I basically only have one thing on my summer bucket list this year.. have a baby. Which is probably good because there's nothing to do in Fresno anyway. I can't wait to come and play with you in the fall. Have a lovely summer! :)
