Summer Bucket List 2.0

With summer's unofficial start last week, it's time to start thinking about what fun things we want to do while the weather is warm and dry (and it's supposed to be a particularly warm and dry one here). I really liked referring back to my bucket list last summer, so I'm creating another one this year. Like last year, I don't expect to accomplish them all, but I hope to get through many of them!

  • Teach Madeleine how to ride a bike
  • Teach Elliott how to walk
  • Do a backyard camp out with Madeleine
  • Do a family outing to a Mariners game
  • Take Madeleine horseback riding
  • Make popsicles
  • Check out at least three farmers markets
  • Check out at least three beach parks
  • Take at least five family hikes
  • Have a picnic on the lawn of Chateau Ste. Michelle
  • Have a picnic on Jetty Island
  • Spend a weekend on the Oregon coast
  • Stroll the Bellevue Arts Fair
  • Have a day date to Chihuly Garden and Glass
  • Explore Lake Union with a picnic on a paddle boat or a sunset kayak
  • Play with glass at a Glassybaby hot shop open house
  • Check out Cafe Juanita's new old space
  • Explore at least three new wineries
  • Sew a dress for Madeleine
  • Do large scale painting in the back yard
  • Run a half marathon

What's on your list for the summer?

This inspires me to make a bucket list. I am putting on my list that I need to make a list.

Can I come along? Would love to be in on some of the fun!!!! What great experiences for the kids and wonderful times for you all!

We are stealing one of yours from last year- ride the bus with Elouise! She loves watching them go by...too bad our bus ride won't bring us to downtown Seattle! Camping and hiking are also on our list :) and I've been pinning dress tutorials/patterns for ages...wouldn't be bad to get one of those made!

Yaaay, Megan! I'd love to see what you sew up for Elouise! M loved the bus last year, and I'm hoping to do a mini-repeat of it this year.
