Summer Bucket List


Summertime and the livin's easy.

With Memorial Day weekend behind us, I consider summer to be officially here!  I'm so ready to get the fun under way- our first summer in the 'new' house, back in Michigan and with Brady boy.  Lots of good times to look forward to.  

Last night, Nick and I made a 'bucket list' of things we want to do this summer... because we don't want to waste a moment.  Our list may be a bit aggressive considering the amount of wedding weekends we have to attend (SIX) but we're going to give it our best shot.
 
•Plant (and hopefully grow!) an herb garden
•Take Brady swimming 
•Get ice cream at a popular local spot
•Spend a couple of days at Cedar Point - the roller coaster capital of the world
•Play golf
•Lots and lots of beach days
•Enjoy an afternoon on the patio at Bell's Brewery
•Visit the weekly farmers market
•Attend a Detroit Tigers game
•Christen our new meat smoker with a family BBQ
•Have a 'phone free' day
•Visit my grandparents up north Michigan

We REALLY wanted to add a trip to Charleston to our list because we had the best time ever last summer but I just don't think we can squeeze it in this year.  

Also make sure to check out a few of my other ideas on my summer Pinterest board.  Here's to making the next three months full of lots of fun memories!  What's on your bucket list?

  1. I think everyone should do a phone-free day on a regular basis. Really, most people lived happily without cell phones until the early 2000s. It's scary how much our society has made it a necessity.

  2. When you said it was officially summer post Labor Day my heart jumped a bit. Where is this year going?

  8. A phone free day sounds amazing, it'll be so liberating! And I've never been to Cedar Point, but I love rollercoasters so that's going to have to happen at some point :-D

    Great list girl, you're going to have an amazing summer!

  11. This is the perfect summer bucket list! I hope you guys get to do everything on top of all the weddings that you have to attend. We were supposed to go to San Francisco for a long weekend in a couple weeks, but we ended up having to cancel it and now we have airline tickets just waiting for us ... Charleston may be the destination for my birthday next year! :)

  21. Sounds like a perfect summer list. I have always wanted to go to Cedar Point, I hear its so fun.

  22. Sounds like a great list. We've started working on a bucket list of our own and it includes things like - try a few new restaurants, go swimming with Olive, head to the beach a time or two, check out local attractions and plan trips to visit family and MOVE. I'm trying to focus on the fun and less on the giant task that moving is - haha!

  34. These sound like fabulous ideas. I feel like golfing is a must-do. Even if it's just mini-golf because I'm awful at golf, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Holy cow, that's a lot of weddings! I wish I lived close enough to a beach where I could go more than once a summer! Charleston is so pretty--we actually got married at Folly Beach (just outside of Charleston) last summer and we loved it!
