Our 2017 Summer Fun List

Every year we make a summer bucket list packed full of fun activities that we hope to complete. From trips to the pool, projects of all sorts, and yummy treats. We try to include a little bit of everything. Over the past four years I have watched our list change drastically. There are some things that we have grown out of  πŸ˜₯ , but others that we have grown into  πŸ˜€ .

However, no matter how our list evolves and how much my sweet girls grow, every year I find myself saying we had the best summer ever. I have no doubts that this year will be any different.

Here is our 2017 summer fun list!

  1. Go swimming 100 times.
  2. Attend an outdoor movie.
  3. Take swimming lessons.
  4. Get Late night milkshakes from Sonic.
  5. Ride bikes to get ice cream.
  6. Go on a scavenger hunt.
  7. Celebrate National S’more Day.
  8. Visit the farmers market.
  9. Play in the sprinkler.
  10. Visit the dirt track.
  11. Go on a wall crawl.
  12. Attend VBS, twice!
  13. Make lemonade.
  14. Attend a car show.
  15. Make a chalk art mural.
  16. Have a picnic.
  17. Make root-beer floats.
  18. Kids cook dinner night.
  19. Buy fireworks for the 4th!
  20. Make ice cream sandwiches.

  22. Go to the $1 movies.
  23. Host a mini summer photo challenge

  • Great list! I have to add an outdoor movie and rootbeer floats to mine!

    • You totally do! Bonus points if you do them both on one night! πŸ™‚

  • Lizzie Simantz

    Such an awesome list and i had to laugh at the go swimming 100 times LOL. I hope to take lots of bike rides with my kids especially now that 2/3 can ride without training wheels!

    • It seems insane, right?!?! But if anyone can do it, we can! That is so exciting friend.

  • Heather Bramlett

    What a FUN list! I am sharing ours next week! I didn’t know there was National S’mores Day! We will certainly be celebrating that! πŸ™‚

    • There is! I might have something up my sleeve for that too.

  • What’s a wall crawl? I wan’t one. <— said in my best Buddy the Elf Voice. But really…. what is a wall crawl? Looks like you will have a great summer!!

    • Fairly certain it’s where you find cool walls to take pictures in front of. Like Desiree does from Macke Monologues.

    • Yes, what she said we have LOADS of murals and I think it would be fun to do a lot of photos at them one day.

  • Happy summer sweet friend!! I am so jealous of your awesome pool. I saw your Insta stories of the slides and such. SO MUCH FUN!! I love the list you have created and can’t wait to follow along as you cross things off your list. Cute template! I love flamingos…they are such interesting creatures.

    • We have 3 pools that we can visit with one pass and it definitely makes our summer more fun. Thank you!

  • Isn’t summer just the best? Your list is helping me think of more things I need to add to ours. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes it is! So glad I could help grow your list more :).

  • Summer is the best! I love your list! I love how many times you guys are going to go to the pool. My kiddos would love that goal!

    • We seriously live at the pool. It is almost embarrassing really.

  • I have a feeling you will have zero problem completing all of these!

  • I just love summers! I wish I got the summer off from work to do everything on your list! That graphic with the flamingos is super cute! Happy Summering!

    • I know! Wouldn’t it be so fun if everyone got the summer off :(. Thank you!

  • Go swimming 100 times…. fishy fishy!
    I love that printable!

    • You know it. Were up to 8! But on IG I am only counting our city pool visits.

  • Im so glad you posted this! I was feeling like the last blogger on earth who hadnt shared their summer list yet πŸ˜‰ YES to National S’mores Day!!

    • And to think, it technically isn’t even summer yet ;).

      • Right?! As soon as school ends you instantly think “summer’s here!!” Which isnt a bad thing.

  • Love the list! And I love your template!! I’d totally use it if I hadn’t made mine already!

  • I love your list! So much fun!

  • I might just borrow your entire list because it all sounds so fun!

    • Haha! Go right ahead! We are so excited!!!

  • LOVE this list! You’re not messing around with getting after that #1! πŸ˜‰ I’ve enjoyed seeing you document your pool visits in instastories. πŸ™‚ The printable you created couldn’t be cuter!! Looking forward to using it! Thanks a bunch, Beth!! xo

    • And I am only counting our public pool trips on there! We have made a few others already… so 8 total so far!!!

  • Why yes, we have already treated ourselves to 2 shakes from sonic this summer! After 8 p.m. is great πŸ™‚ You guys have a lot of fun things planned, go out and conquer it all and make this summer fantastic!

    • Y’all are so cool! My oldest keeps BEGGING me to go. Maybe this weekend!

  • Jessica

    Such a great list!!! We have similar things on ours. Summertime is so awesome!

    • Yes it is! I feel like we are finally at the peak of it to and I just want to hit the pause button and enjoy every single second.

  • Whitney Jordan

    What a fun list!! I think you’ll have no problem with the 100 days of swimming at your fun pool. And late night Sonic milkshakes sound delicious. Bowling is on our list. I signed us up for family bowling passes at a local place so I’m excited to have a great, rainy day activity.
    Can’t wait to see what fun adventures you go on this summer.

    • I sure hope so. Once swimming lessons start up we’ll get 2 visits a day in for a while, lololol! I just love summer so very, very much.
