Another summer. Another bucket list.
Each year my husband and I make our annual summer bucket list. Summer can seemingly go by so fast, so for us, this list serve two purposes: (1) a true bucket list: Those things we’d like to do by summer’s end, and (2) at the end of the summer we utilize the list as a reminder of how complete our summer was. It never fails to remind us that summer didn’t fly by after all.
With a five-year-old and a two-and-a-half-year-old, we obviously have to keep it relatively easy, somewhat close to home, and attractive for short attention spans. And while my husband and I yearn to do the things we used to do before kids – mountain biking, backpacking, roller coasters, and the like — we know that day will come soon enough. For now, we’re simply enjoying the innocent pleasures that come with our sons’ first experiences.
What’s on your bucket list this summer?
