Summer Fun – No Bucket List Required

I love summer. The warmth. The sun. The long days. The water. So many good reasons. I’ve never made a summer bucket list though. Partly laziness but most recently – why put that stress on myself? We’re juggling full time jobs, house projects, one child in kindergarten (already over a month strong there!) and another on the way. So many things. But amidst the busy days and lack of a list, we’re still squeezing in a lot of summer fun…

We’ve watched outdoor movies with neighbors in the parking lot of the neighborhood pool.

We’re visiting the pool as much as possible to swim and take some gravity off my growing belly!

Dylan has had visits to see all 3 sets of grandparents (aka “grandparent camp”) and been fully spoiled with swimming, fishing, his first ever trip to South Carolina, etc.

We celebrated Dylan’s 5th birthday with a great at home pirate themed party complete with plenty of time playing in the backyard thanks to unusually cool weather.

We’ve gone geocaching.

We went to a Durham Bulls baseball game to celebrate Trent’s birthday and attended a Carolina Railhawks soccer game with a good friend.

We played mini golf for Father’s Day and the boys have played their own version of putt putt in the garage on rainy days.

We made S’mores.

We took a trip to the mountains and visited Tweetsie Railroad.

No trip to the coast this year, but we still managed to find the beach a bit closer and spent time at a local lake with friends.

Hmm … thinking perhaps I should continue with the “no bucket list” thing – seems like we manage to squeeze in a lot of fun without one and summer isn’t even quite over yet.

What do you do? Summer bucket list or no list?
