Summer Bucket List
If you are anything like me, you start your summer off with the best intentions. We start our summer with a BANG, doing everything we possible can those first few weeks, and then we start to fizzle out. Recently, I saw one of my friends had a "Summer Bucket List" on Facebook and I thought to myself, "What a great idea!" I'm sure you may have gained some insight as to my personality from my previous posts, but if not, I am Type A all the way! A summer bucket list will keep me on track for things we want to do as a family and also let us spread out different activities throughout the summer.
A summer bucket list does not have to be all expensive things to do....nobody has the money to keep up with that! A summer bucket list can include things like taking a nap in a hammock, making S'mores, or going to the ocean for a beach day. Each summer I have these grandiose plans and then when they don't happen I push them off until the next summer, and the next, and the next. This is my summer! I am going to make it my job to complete this bucket list!
I live on Long Island and there are so many wonderful things to do around here! Here are a few I plan on doing with my family this summer: visiting Lavendar By The Bay, visiting Shinnecock Inlet, going to Meschutt Beach to ride on the paddleboards and kayaks, going to a Yankee or Long Island Ducks game, going to visit Central Park, signing my kids up for the local library's Summer Reading Program, and taking a trip with our friends to Block Island. Our big ticket item this summer is going to Disney (there will be a future blog post all about that). Those are just the plans I have in my own head but I do plan on sitting down as a family so we can all have some input as to the items we would like to have on our bucket list.
