Summer Bucket List

I was inspired by The Malphrus Family and her post on their Summer Bucket List.  I decided that I need to add mine to our blog.  There are lots of things that I plan on doing this summer with Taft.  A lot of them are new things that he has never done since we will not be taking a "real vacation".  Of course, since we live in Florida at the beach, there isn't a lot of need to go on a big vacation.  We are very lucky in that respect.
Please go over to her blog and take a look.  It is so cute and they have already completed some of their list.  I am pretty sure that you will want to follow her too.
So here it is!  I did copy a few things from her blog and Pinterest has some great ideas also.

Are you doing a Summer Bucket List?


  1. I love your summer bucket list! I just posted mine today too. I think it will be such a fun way to keep track of all of the fun things to do during the summer!

  2. The idea of a summer bucket list frightens me...maybe that's why I haven't started one. I'm debating on if I should...I am sort of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda mom (which is a nice way of saying I'm crummy at planning & organizing but big on love, lol). Being a perfectionist I would likely feel I'd failed my kids if I didn't scratch everything off of the list by summer's end, lol! Your list is great...you will have one fun-filled summer with Taft!

  3. I took the boys I nanny for to the Orlando Science Center today! They LOVED it! The 6 year old is crazy about building things so he was into everything, and the 3 year old went crazy over the dinosaur room!
