Hey y’all…Even though Summer officially starts on June 20th, for our family it begins Memorial Weekend.

Without fail, every year at the end of the season we proclaim “Where did the Summer go?” This year we are determined to be prepared and have some set-in-stone plans that we can all do together. Our goals are simple…spend time together throughout the Summer, have lots of fun and create as many memories as possible. We thought that by creating a Summer Bucket List it would serve as a guide and a reminder of what we want to accomplish this year. We want to recreate snippets of our childhood’s  – when life was simple and carefree.

We are so excited to see and experience what the Summer brings!

Summer Bucket List


  1. My list is very similar to this one. Tomatoes and watermelon are always on the list! 😉

  2. Yeah for making family memories! Sounds like this is going to be one exciting summer – can’t wait! Hugs, CoCo

  3. Your list sounds simply wonderful! For reading, I recommend Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series if you haven’t read them.

    Enjoy your summer!!!

  4. Great stuff. Picnics and stargazing are my favs along with anything in or on the lake. Books? Fiction: “Eve Redemption” by Rebecca Tinkle. Nonfiction : “The Power Brain: Five Steps to Upgrading Your Brain Operating System”.
