Sweet Strawberry Patch! Summer’s Just About Here

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I was just complaining about how the cold weather doesn’t go away quickly enough.  I never really thaw until the month of April around here, and this year April was still pretty chilly.  So I remained frigid until May.

But now the nights are warmer and the days are hot.  The sun is out much longer, and we have all dragged out bathing suits and sunblock.

On some level, this will be a break for all of us.  Our family did a lot of traveling in the month of May, and we won’t be going anywhere else for the rest of the summer. The hubs and I are both looking forward to some time spent at home without having to load the girls in the car every other weekend.

With the extra time at home, I’ve decided to make a list of some of the things we would like to do this summer, so without further ado, I present to you our summer bucket list.


  • Go camping
  • Go to the lake (a lot)
  • Make weekly trips to the library
  • Fill the sidewalk with chalk drawings
  • Visit the zoo
  • Pick strawberries
  • Make ice pops
  • Grow vegetables
  • stay up late to watch the stars
  • catch lightening bugs
  • Watch fireworks
  • go out for ice cream cones
  • Try fishing

Some of these things we have done in previous years, and others we have not.  This year I am looking forward to both girls really being able to understand a bit more of the fun things we do.  We have visited a few museums already, and both girls really enjoyed them.

What is on your summer bucket list?
