Summer 2016 Bucket List

I can hardly believe that we are half way through May and summer is practically a month away. Crazy how time flies!

For me summer has always been about spending time with friends/family at the pool, grilling or at the beach. So my bucket list for this summer is all about family and spending some alone time with my hubby and of course lots of sun!

Here is my 2016 Summer Bucket List:

Host a girls night. Its been more then a year since I have had a girls night. So this summer I want to spend some time with my girls. Maybe go out for dinner and dancing or a wine and movie night. Whatever we do its always fun and a nice break from mom duties.

Go dancing. I love to dance so I want to dance the night away this summer…literally. Maybe with my girls or even better my man!

Have a picnic by the lake. Picnics are a perfect summer activity. I want to change it up a little bit and have a picnic by the lake!

Run through the sprinklers with my little one. Now that my daughter can walk and run I want to have some fun in the water! As a kid I loved running through the sprinklers and I want to do that with my daughter this year. 

Make S’mores. Fourth of July is the perfect time to make some s’mores! Yum!

Go on a family bike ride. I still need to find a carrier for my little one but once I do… it’s on! Family bike rides, here we come!

Go to the zoo. Summer is the perfect time for a family zoo trip. Take the grandparents for a little extra help and you have the perfect summer activity.

Volunteer as a family for a charity. I have always wanted to do something as a family for a charity. This summer I am making it my mission to find a charity to help.

Go see a movie at the theater.  I haven’t been to a movie theater in over a year, pathetic! There are so many great movies coming out so I definitely need to go see at least one this summer, on a rainy day of course!

Lots of pool time. This is an obvious one! My parents have a pool so lots of pool time for us is a must in the summer.

Swim lessons for my little one. I have been wanting to get my daughter in swim lessons so what better time then the summer!

Make an indoor fort. My husband makes the best forts so I am going to recruit him to make a fort in our family room for our daughter.

Send the little one off to grandmas for the weekend. Have some mommy and daddy alone time.

Visit a new town. I am like bitting at the bit to move so this summer the hubby and I are going to go visit a few towns that we might want to move to!
