Summer Bucket List

It has been so hot already this summer that it feels later in the summer than it is.     Big Guy has been volunteering at VBS all week this week.     He heads up the sound and media team.  

We are saving our money for two big vacations in the fall/winter so we won't be making any big trips this summer.     However, that doesn't mean we can't have fun.     I have been working on a summer bucket list.

Here is our starting point:
  • VBS
  • ride bikes
  • learn how to cook something new
  • sign up the boys for at least one camp (found a cooking camp for Little Guy, just need one for Big Guy)
  • go pick berries at a local farm
  • have a water balloon fight
  • swimming
  • sign the boys up for summer reading programs -- might as well earn prizes for those books they are reading!
  • go to Vicksburg to play with the twins 
  • 4th of July fireworks
  • go geocaching
  • visit a museum or art gallery
  • go bowling
  • explore a Mississippi city that we haven't discovered yet
  • go to some of the great Mississippi festivals (tomato, blackberry, watermelon, etc....)
  • read a book
  • pack a picnic for after church at least one Sunday to enjoy at the Reservoir
  • buy a new ice cream maker so we can make homemade ice cream
  • enjoy a week with our friends from Atlanta
  • celebrate my 21st wedding anniversary
  • lots of game time after supper

What is on your summer bucket list?

The tomato festival is coming up soon. June 25th.

All of those sound doable and will be nice for ya'll.

Hope you can find a camp for Big Guy.
