Summer is Here! So is Our Summer Bucket list!

summer bucketlist

Summer is here!  We so look forward to warm sunshine summer brings after winter.  We have been discussing our summer plans long before it was even warm.  The kids would mention, lets do this when it gets warm, lets do that when it gets warm.  They are always coming up with great plans and ideas of things they want to do, this year will be no exception.

Last summer I was very, very pregnant.  As a result, we did very little outdoors, or anywhere really.  This year it will be quite different.  We have multiple road trips planned (one, two already completed!), plans to enjoy a few things that the beautiful state of Arkansas offers and plans to enjoy each summer day even if from home.  We can’t wait to share our adventures with you starting next week!  As well as see some of yours!

Our motto this summer is: Turn moments into memories!

Since I am all about lists (and the kids are nowadays as well), we decided to sit down and put pen to paper to start compiling our summer bucket list!  Everything we could think of we may want to do (that could be realistic) we tried to include.  We may not get to them all, we may add more in, but for now we have great aspirations we hope to turn into inspirations.
