Just a little over a month ago I shared our 2016 Bucket List. It was crammed full of all things summer fun, adding up to 23 items. Easily our biggest bucket list so far. The good news is fall doesn’t start until September 22nd (although most would say it is the day the PSL returns). We have more than enough time to tackle this list.
Here is a look at our progress so far.
Our 3rd year of swim lessons were even more successful than the previous two years which makes for one proud mama and two little girls that have almost grown fins.
We missed the big fireworks on The Fourth but we made up for it a few days later. Russ’ job is close to the local minor league ball park so we pulled up some front row seats with our friends and stayed up way to late to catch one of their Friday Fireworks shows.
Make Root-beer floats
Marissa discovered what is now her favorite summer treat.
Emily discovered she hates root beer.
Go to the drive-in
A family favorite tradition. This year we saw Finding Dory. The girls had already watched it a couple of weeks ago when their grandparents took them, but they were more than happy to watch it again as a family.
Make Strawberry Pie
I have wanted to make a strawberry pie for a few summers now. I wish I could say this one turned out perfectly, but it didn’t. I think I’ll keep looking for a better recipe. The girls did have a blast making it with me though.
Mom-cation with Anna
Since this one gets a post of its own next week, I won’t share too much. It was great to get away with this lady though. That is all I will say for now :).
Have a picnic
A picnic dinner while waiting for the drive-inn to open up was the perfect chance to mark this one off. Usually by this part of the summer it is way to hot to eat outside… unless you have some great big trees to sit under.
And that is just a little peek into our summer fun so far!
It is hard to believe that school starts in less than 3 weeks. But just because we go back to school doesn’t mean the summer fun has to be over completely. There is still so much time and 16 items to cross off our list. Including a vacation we have already waited over 5 months for.
The summer may be short but the memories will last forever!Sharing our #Summerbucketlist progress so far. 7 down, 16 to go! Click To Tweet
