Summer Bucket List 2016

This past weekend was the unofficial start to summer, but up here in the north, we still have 3 weeks of school left.  So although I may be a little late with this post, I think I'm still in the realm of acceptable!

So, without further ado,


1.  Take a week long beach vacation
It's booked!  This year we are trying out Cape May.

2.  Have friends over for dinner and drinks on the deck
I make excellent kabobs and pasta salad!  Want to come over?

3.  Make S'mores in our fire pit
OK, first we have to purchase and then put together said firepit.  But once it's good to go, I want to make S'mores!

4.  Take the kids to the Drive In Theatre
Maybe see The Secret Life of Pets?

5.  Visit a couple state parks
Swimming and picnics please!

6.  Take a day trip to a water park
Enchanted Forest?  Zoom Flume?

7.  Pool day at mom's house once a month  
Hopefully more than once a month, but it's an hour and a half drive, so we'll see...

8.  Go to a concert (not sure which concert yet)

9.  Hit another Red Sox/Yankees game

10.  Impromptu weekend getaway with the hubby
(any ideas??)

11.  Continue reading!
My goal is 6 new books this summer

12.  Ice cream dates with the kiddos
One of the best things about summer is soft ice cream at our favorite ice cream spot!

I think it's a pretty do-able list.  And although I do hate the heat (um, why is it already 85-90 degrees in NY??) I do love the longer days, getting outside, and the relaxed pace of summer. 
What's on your summer bucket list? 


  1. Fun list! I will not complain about school letting out next week if you have three more weeks - geeeeesh!

  2. This is an awesome list! I need to make one with my kids to write out everything they want to do! :)

  3. That is a great bucket list. I plan on reading lots of books, spending time at the beach and visiting family in far away places this summer.

  4. Great list! I want to make s'mores right now! hahaha

  5. Great list!!! I was just working on my summer bucket list this afternoon! Crazy to me how summer is already here.

  6. Great list! I'd definitely love to come over :) I also would love to take my kids to a drive-in movie. We had a fire and S'mores this past weekend!

  7. I love ice cream dates with the kiddos! I try to do it once a week in the summer. They love it (and Mommy does too, although not necessarily my waistline... oh well!).

  8. This is a great bucket list! I made one for my son yesterday, of the things I want to do together with him this summer!

  9. Sounds like a fun summer! I need to add weekend getaway with the hubby and beach vacation to our summer to-do list :) Thanks for sharing at the Wednesday Showcase party.
