Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket List

I recently asked my 9 year old, JJ, what her summer bucket list involved. She informed me she did not have one because she did not know what one was.

Oh, yeah.


a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime or prior to a milestone event

Now that THAT was out of the way… she commenced to thinking. I gave her a few examples, she grabbed a pencil and paper, and started her summer bucket list. I think we should hopefully be able to get most of these knocked off over the next few months. Take a look at her ideas:

Bucket List

Summer Bucket List

  • Fly a kite (good thing Reliant just gave two awesome new kites)
  • Go to the Most Awesome Vacation (not sure what “most awesome” is in her eyes but we’re working on it)
  • Go camping in the backyard (easy, peasy!)
  • Have a water balloon fight (technically we just did this last week)
  • Go to a drive-in movie theater (no doubt… top of my list as well)
  • Visit the zoo (piece of cake)
  • Finger Paint Art (coming up)
  • Build a HUGE fort (again, huge is relative… wonder how big it is to her)
  • Eat S’mores (YUM… love this idea)
  • Watch the 4th of July fireworks (well, of course… never miss them)
  • Go to the Amusement Park (already on the calendar)
  • Go fishing (living on the lake makes this a must for us)

And may I add a few of my own:

  • Make Tie Dye shirts with the girls
  • Backyard Movie Night
  • Have a Sundae Bar
  • Trace Shadows
  • Make Memories… daily!
