Summer Bucket List
Since it’s almost the 4th of July, I figured I’d better get working on our Summer Bucket List. How did June go by so fast? I have a bad feeling the rest of summer is going to go just as fast, so I want to make the most of it.
Mr. B has summer school most mornings, but we still have our afternoons and early evenings free. It stays light a lot longer, which means later bedtimes and more time for activities. The twins have been going to bed later (although, still getting up super early!) and naps have become shorter and shorter….or non-existent, depending on the day.
All three boys are also finally at an age where we can do a few more things…I hope. So, there will be quite a few “firsts” on this summer bucket list.
Our Summer Bucket list will be filled with fun, family activities, as well as some things for just mom and dad. No goals, just fun. So, let’s get to it.
For the Family
- Take the boys to their First Brewer’s Baseball Game
- Take the boys to their First Fireworks
- Try to enjoy the 4th of July Parade (this is mostly a reminder for me!)
- Go to Summerfest or a Church Festival
- Go swimming
- Got to a new park
- Go to a Splash Pad
- Have a Picnic
- Have a Camp Fire
- Camp in the backyard…or maybe the living room
For Mom and Dad
- Go on a date to Summerfest (A huge music festival in Milwaukee)
- Have a movie or drive-in date night
- Go to dinner at a restaurant with an outdoor patio
- Have a double date
That should about do it. Hopefully, we’ll be able to squeeze everything in. We also have a trip planned at the end of the Summer for my birthday. We haven’t booked tickets yet, but as soon as we do, I’m going to tell you all about it. I will tell you that it’s going to be a family trip, which involves the boys first time on a plane. Yikes.
We also will be having the twins’ 4th Nicuversary party. Since their actual 4th birthday happened right around the time of the March of Dimes March for Babies, we decided a summer party would be more fun and way less stressful.
So, we have lots to look forward to this summer! What do you have planned? What’s on your Summer Bucket List?
