Oh! The Lazy Days of Summer: Summer Bucket List

Are you ready for melting ice cream cones and days that seem to stretch on forever? How can we make the most of these lazy, hazy days? A summer bucket list - your ticket to a season filled with adventure, relaxation, and unforgettable memories.

This is our third year for making a summer bucket list and I'm so excited. We never run out of great things to do all summer long. I pick up all of the supplies we need at the beginning of summer, so we always have everything on hand no matter the day or the weather!

I love your list and how you divided it up into categories. I like the idea of going to a waterfall. My kids would love that. It looks like a very fun summer ahead. Thank you for linking up to the party.

Great list! I just added a few to our list! Looks like an awesome plan for this summer!

Bethany said...

I always get so excited to start! I can hardly wait!

Kirby said...

Great list. I have a bunch on our summer list, I need to break ours up into categories like yours, so I can keep track what we can do each day!

We cut the rainy day ideas and what to do days into strips and put them into jars. Then we pull one out every day that we don't already have something else from the list planned. It is a great system for us.
