2015 Summer Bucket List

Backyard pool time, May 2015 #bringonsummer

With the opening of our neighborhood pool this past weekend and another year of preschool finished up, it’s time to switch gears and think summer activities!  While we were able to cross a lot off our bucket list goals from last summer, we have some of the same goals and some lofty new goals this summer (note, “survive swim team”).  In no particular order, here’s my kiddo-friendly summertime bucket list:

  1. Have a breakfast picnic in pajamas
  2. Visit the library
  3. Visit the Eno River State Park
  4. Camp in the backyard
  5. Try a new ice cream place
  6. Attend an outdoor concert
  7. Explore Downtown Raleigh via Segway
  8. Play with the slip ‘n slide
  9. Let the kiddos enjoy the water fountains at NC Museum of Art after a Stroller Strides class
  10. Go blueberry picking
  11. Discover three new parks (and be current on blog posts)
  12. Catch lightning bugs
  13. Explore the Prairie Ridge Ecostation again
  14. Survive swim team
  15. Go to the movies
  16. Attend a Durham Bulls game
  17. Discover a new (to us) brewery
  18. Make s’mores
  19. Fly a kite
  20. Watch a movie outside
  21. Grill oysters
  22. Go to the Durham farmers’ market
  23. Visit Beaufort, NC
  24. Visit a farm
  25. Enjoy a bushel of crabs

This might seem like a busy list, but I’ve got energetic girls who can hang! I know the next three months will fly by but we’ll have great memories and photos to cherish, so #bringonsummer!

  1. How about: Take a dinner picnic to RDU (http://www.rdu.com/observation-park/) or a small airport (e.g., UNC-Horace Williams Airport @ 1001 Estes Drive Extension, Chapel Hill … or … the Triple W Air Park in Fuquay-Varina) and watch the airplanes take off and land in the cool of a summer’s evening?

  2. I’m in! Where do I sign up? Thanks for making my summer plans for me! S’mores can always be found at the McFire Pit!

  3. Sound like a fun and busy summer… and a great list.

    Here are some quiet, back-yard activities:
    Are there still four-leafed clovers to be found… that takes a lot of time!
    And, sucking the sweetness from the stem of a sweet clover bloom… or making a crown of the blooms.
    And watching ants carry big loads back to their anthill.
    Love, Grandma Bev
