End of Summer Check-In

In my world, it is officially, irrevocably the END of summer.
Vacation is over.
Labor Day is upon on.
School starts this week.
The PSL is back at Starbucks.
And even though the forecast is for high 80's and low to mid 90's this week, I am officially declaring it fall!

So, in honor of the end of summer, lets check in and see how I did with my summer bucket list!!

1.  Take a week long beach vacation
Yes!  Completed!  We just got back from Cape May and had a great time.  We also had an amazing time in York Beach, ME earlier in the summer.

2.  Have friends over for dinner and drinks on the deck
This didn't really happen.

3.  Make S'mores in our fire pit
Well, we didn't get a fire pit, but we DID make S'mores in the oven.

4.  Take the kids to the Drive In Theatre
Nope.  But we did see Secret Life of Pets at the regular theatre.

5.  Visit a couple state parks

6.  Take a day trip to a water park
Nope.  But we discovered the town pool which we LOVE!

7.  Pool day at mom's house once a month 

8.  Go to a concert (not sure which concert yet)
We are going this weekend!

9.  Hit another Red Sox/Yankees game

10.  Impromptu trip with the hubby 
This weekend!

11.  Continue reading!  
Yes!  But I think I only got to 3 new books this summer.

12.  Ice cream dates with the kiddos
Definitely!!  Lots and lots!!

So, we didn't get to everything on the list, but we did a lot!  I would declare this a pretty successful summer.  How about you?  Did you get to do everything YOU wanted to this summer?

Next up on the blog will be.... my FALL bucket list (of course!)!  Stop by tomorrow to check it out!


  1. I make s'mores in the oven all of the time!!! Looks like you had an awesome summer! What books did you read?

  2. Summer is the perfect time to make memories and you did just that!
