Things we will do this Summer

The last few Summers I have been making a "Summer bucket list" for me and the kids to do during the summer. (Here is 2012) Before, when I was working I would try to get out and do things on the weekend, but frankly, I was lazy, there were groceries to get and a house to clean and it was so much nicer to do what I wanted on my days off and ultimately, Zachary benefited the least.

It makes me so grateful for Travis that he works as hard as he does so that I am able to stay home with our kids and raise them. I love having the extra time to actually sit down and play with my kids.  *And I have no judgement to those people who do work, I am talking about my own personal circumstances*

Here are 40/50 of our bucket list items:

1. Camp on the beach
2. Make Sun tea
3. Make my own skirt
4. Mini golf
5. Have a picnic
6. Make home made bubbles
7. Build a sandcastle
8. Find a lake to go to
9. Go huckleberry picking
10. learn to can foods
11. go to and swim in the ocean
12. Go to the zoo
13. tie a note to a balloon and send it off
14. ride a horse on the beach

As you can see my list goes to 50 but I've only filled out 40. Why is that? you ask? Well I came across this a couple of weeks ago and I plan to have it printed out and write everything from our list onto it, and have 10 spaces to add as we think of other fun things to do! The Crafting Chicks rock! And this printable is great! I can't wait to get it up and start on our bucket list!
