Summer Bucket List Checkoff 2015

Let's hang on to summer just a little bit longer, shall we? 

I shared lots of pics of our summer last week, but this time I'm gonna do a little check off of everything we actually followed through with from our summer bucket list Kaydin and I came up with this spring.

I think we made pretty good progress through this long list! We checked off most things! Some are still on the to-do list but we made a pretty good dent through the short summer season!


Kaydin's Summer Bucket List


*Adventureland


*Swimming at the aquatic center

*Read 10 chapter books
This summer we just didn't read as much as we should've. It's a priority again this school year though!

*Get slushies from Tropical Snow

*Go to the art center


*Go to South Dakota with Grammy and Papa

*Visit Living History Farms


*Play with friends
*Set up the sprinkler in the backyard
*Get a new snail for the fish tank.
This is still on the to-do list.Tried a few times to get a couple new snails and it never worked out for one reason or another.

*Stay up late til midnight one night watching movies

*Make beaded jewelry
*Make new loom band creations
*Fashion show
She made a fashion show out of trying on her new school clothes.


Mollie's Summer Bucket List

*Pick wild flowers

*Visit the various farmers markets around the city

Plans fell through to see the movie in theaters, but it's in the works for when it comes out to rent or buy.

*Make homemade fruit filled, low sugar popsicles
Someday!

*Visit Washington DC


*Harvest lots of food from the garden



*Go strawberry and blueberry picking
We got the strawberries but not the blueberries.

*Buy a surplus of strawberries, blueberries and peaches for freezing and preserving

*Lots of trips to the frozen yogurt shop

*Bike the High Trestle Trail
Still haven't made it up there! Someday!

*Can chopped tomatoes from the garden
 These tomatoes werem't from my garden, rather Mom and Dad's and my friend's Summer's, but I still put em in a mason jar! Hopefully someday I'll get the green thumb for producing some tomatoes!

*Go to a few garage sales
Never stopped at any this summer despite the hundreds of signs always lining the intersections.

*Visit the State Fair




*Indulge in a smore's frappuchino

*Make homemade ice cream
Someday!

We didn't make it up this summer but hopefully soon!
