It’s summertime! We kicked off summer at the lake with longtime friends this weekend. There was lots of sun, swimming, good food, and we even got started on our 2017 Summer Bucket List with a little blueberry picking.
Summer is such a sweet time for making memories. Having a summer bucket list gives little structure to your days, but still allows for plenty of impromptu fun. Some of the activities are really simple and can be done at home. Others make for fun “field trips.”
We’ll have plenty of “non-bucket list” days this summer for playing with friends, reading, and chores (cleaning out closets, anyone?). I also think it’s a good thing for kids to come up with ways to entertain themselves. You know, like we did when we were kids and disappeared on our bicycles for hours at a time.
Our kids won’t remember every single day of their childhood, but I think they will remember the things we do every year. That’s why having a bucket list has become part of our summer tradition, and I encourage you to make it part of yours. You can find our previous summer bucket lists here: 2015 and 2016. Any other fun activities you think I should add to this? Also, just FYI- my little foodie, Ella, came up with “healthy food day” entirely on her own 🙂
And for a little fun to kick off your own summer, don’t miss my post on the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale! I know many of you have already shopped for some great summer pieces, and if you haven’t, you have until June 4 to score some really good deals.
