at the beginning of summer, i shared out summer bucket list and all the fun things i wanted to make sure we did this summer. throughout the last few months, i’ve been ticking off the activities one by one but now that we’re getting closer to the end of summer and school starting soon, i went back to check on what we all did and have to do yet.

we’ve had such a fun and intentional time getting all the fun in this summer but sometimes one thing gets sacrificed for another. i know there will be at least one thing on our list that won’t be completed (we opted out of attending the fourth of july parade in order to spend the day on the boat) but i’m okay with it because we’ve had the best time so far!

here’s a quick update of all that we had on our list and everything we’ve accomplished so far!

family picnic
play with sparklers
make a summer playlist
take a road trip
go on a bike ride
eat breakfast for dinner
visit the library
cook dinner together
shaving cream bath
go to the beach
watch fireworks
eat lunch at the farmers market
family boat day(s)
music in the park
have a slumber party
eat fried food at the fair
sprinklers in the yard
write a thank you note
make s’mores
visit a new park
water balloon fight
lunch with dad
random act of kindness
swim with friends
visit a splash pad
make fruit loop necklace
mommy/addison brunch date
make sangria
read to the girls a lot
go to a parade
eat watermelon
fly a kite
help nana water the flowers

we have a few more things to finish up before the summer is over but even if those things don’t get checked off, i’m still so happy we did and enjoyed all the fun things we set out to do!

    Wow, you checked off a ton of things on your bucket list for the summer. That's such a fun idea, I need to start doing! I don't really do lists, but it would be so fun to look back on all I've done.
