Bucket List for the Summer

Have you ever noticed that in the winter you dream about summer and say to yourself, "I can't wait for summer, because I'm going to do...." And then the next thing you notice it's Christmas!?!

So I decided that I am going to do a Bucket List for the Summer!!

June - September
1.) Sign up for one of the Dragon Boat Row Teams and row 2 days a week. Then enter at least one race.
2.) Movie night on the deck. Set up our equipment in the backyard, get our blankies and watch movies.
3.) Go to the Farmer's Market on Tuesday nights! They have music, art and of course fresh fruits and veggies. It's a blast!
4.) Read 3 fun books.
5.) Sign up and attend a Ballroom Dance class ~ A Crash Course for Weddings. Get us ready for our sons wedding in September.
5.) Camp at least 2 times. (If we can't get to the recreation area, at least have a couple camp nights out on our deck - it's so much fun!!)
6.) Take the family boating several times. Get the 2 1/2 year old Grand baby up on skis for the first time.
7.) Take a dinner cruise with some friends on the lake.
8.) Have a least 1 BBQ with our family at our house.
9.) Take the Grand babies swimming.
10.) Go to the beach and fly our kites.
11.) Go to a water park with my sister and her husband.
12.) Plan a shopping day with my daughter.
13.) Volunteer for a summer project with my church.
14.) Start a Bible study with my neighbor.

This is what I want to do. It's a big list, but with careful planning, I might be able to get it all done. I just don't want another summer to slip by without accomplishing some fun!!

What do you have on your Summer Bucket List?
