Sometime during the last week of school I asked the kids to tell me two things they want to do this summer while I typed their answers into the notes section of my phone. Figured I should make it official with a blog post… and probably a paper list that lives on the fridge too :)
Here’s what everyone picked.
OZZIE | our annual whidbey camping trip + play more baseball!
ESPEN | go to the wave pool as much as possible + see my gig harbor buddies
GRIFFIN | sleepover on the trampoline + swim at my gigi’s lake (sorry papa, lol)
TILLY | horseback riding + go camping
POPPY | lemonade stand + buy a pool (def my child)
YODER | trip to seabrook + tent camping
ME | day trip to roche harbor + an outdoor (grownup tunes) concert
I’m not usually one to skimp when it comes to making lists but we’ve taken similar approaches for bucket lists before and they always seem to workout better this way. Everyone’s happy when their most important activity get’s checked off AND they even get excited to check things off for each other too!
Bucket list maker or not, I’d love to hear how you keep things fun and laidback during the summer and what you’re most looking forward to?
I think this year I’m most excited about celebrating all the Birthdays! 4 total, (eek)! All of which aren’t listed on our list, lol. Yet another reason to keep things simple I guess!!!
