Summer Bucket List – Our Top 50 Things to Try


Summer Bucket List

Last year we tried our first Summer Bucket List. There were things we made a point to do and plan for because of the list. It is easy for me to get caught in the day to day life, doing the same routine, so I wanted to have some ideas to create memories. We didn’t do everything on the list, and that is okay with me. This year we have compiled a new list for this summer. Some are repeats from last year. and some include local or vacation spots we are doing this summer.
