2018 Summer Bucket List

With swim team in full gear, preschool finished, and the last week of elementary school on the horizon – summer is already in full swing! Next fall brings a new chapter in our lives with both kids in elementary school, so I’m looking forward to making fun summer memories! While we plan to hit the open road quite a bit this summer, we still have lots we want to explore here at home. I’ve intentionally shortened my summer bucket lists over the years to hopefully slow down our summer while having a go-to list of ideas for our family.

Bucket List

  1. Swim at a lake
  2. Decorate canvas bags for checking out books at the library
  3. Build an outdoor art table
  4. Check out Raleigh’s new Union Station via a short train ride to Cary
  5. See a movie at the Henderson drive-in movie theater
  6. Get a bushel of crabs
  7. Make ice cream in a bag
  8. Meet up with friends at a campground
  9. Visit a new brewery
  10. Visit the Whirligig Park in Wilson, NC
  11. Take a day trip to Saxapahaw, NC

  1. FWIW, I like the Henderson drive-in movie theater and the day trips to the whirligig park and Saxapahaw (which wins for the best town name).
