Summer Bucket List

Back in May, I came up with a bunch of fun ideas/activities to keep my girls having fun this summer, a Summer Bucket List.  We wrote down all our ideas on pieces of paper and put them in, a bucket! The idea was each day or couple days we would pick from the bucket to see what we would do.  Then, for each activity we did, we took a picture (or a couple).  At the end of the summer, I am going to create a photo book of our adventures. It will be something special we can always look back at and remember all the fun we had!

Here is our Summer Bucket List: I've crossed out the items we have done so far!

  • Make cookies from scratch
  • Paint
  • Learn to swim (my girls, not me!) 
  • Go to an outdoor movie
  • Catch fireflies
