Summer Bucket List

Our Summer Bucket List

Every summer, well heck, every break, the boys enjoy checklists of things we want to do.  This summer we will be doing themed weeks (more on that later) and so I incorporated some of those activities into our list.  After searching Pinterest for some idea, I created our own list that mixes a little of everything.  I wish I could have added some bike things on the summer list, but both of the boys' bikes are in ill-repair.  I'm pretty sure there will be some shiny new ones under the Christmas tree this year.
So here is the list:
  • Set up a lemonade stand
  • visit the library (we should be doing this weekly to get our themed books)
  • movie party - we want to invite some friends over for popcorn and treats
  • make or get sno-cones
  • water balloon fight
  • hike - there are some gorgeous trails in Auburn.  My favorite is the Hidden Falls Trail.
  • water park - Thankfully we are pretty close to Sunsplash Waterpark
  • museum - on our schedule we have the Railroad Museum, San Jose Children's Museum, Walt Disney Museum, and the Discovery Museum all to visit
  • zoo - we are headed to the Folsom Animal Sanctuary this year
  • roller skating
  • Drive-in movies (there is still one left in our area!)
  • make a sprinkler course - I have always loved obstacle courses!
  • paint - heading to Petroglyph's for this 
  • fireworks
  • beach trip - This summer we are planning to go to Pismo Beach for the first time
  • Aquarium - heading to Pier 39; it has been yeeeeeaaaaars since we last visited
  • make popsicles
  • watch a parade
  • berry picking
  • make a craft with food
  • Hume Lake! 
  • Epic - an indoor skate park near our home
  • game night
  • do a craft
  • swim
  • make smores
  • VBS
  • do a random act of kindness - I am hoping Ding Dongs and Hostess are back soon!
  • go out for breakfast
  • ice cream sundaes for dinner
  • shaving cream fight
  • bowling
  • State Fair - as long as the heat and my pregnancy don't get to me!
Please join us in our summer challenge and update in the comments with how you are doing!
