So this is what happens when you have kids helping you with the Summer Bucket List. I mean, they have to help, because it is a joint effort and all, but then I get two entries repeated on the list, and I forget one. Oops. The sliver of perfectionist in me is likely going to rewrite the whole thing so it’s done right, but for tonight, and in the interest of saving time since I’m late with the list, this will have to do. Some things are carried over from last year. Some are repeats of favorite summer activities. A ton of them are free. A few are not. They all mean pure summer to the O’Malley household. We have actually crossed a few off the list already – more on that in coming posts. What’s on YOUR summer bucket list?
A few extra bonus photos tonight for you (and Kris!) since I can’t go through all 600 (!!) pictures we took over the weekend. I’m going to separate them out in a few upcoming posts, but know this … perfect summer weekend. Mid-afternoon yesterday, Madeline proclaimed it was “the best day ever!” And last night, on the way home from the shore, as Nick inhaled his Sonic buffet spread out in the way back seat of my truck, he said he was “so loving today.” I love that little things add up to big things for them.
Sunsets and sonic. Fireworks and family time. Swimming and diving. Animals and animals and animals. Pure unadulterated bliss. Hope your weekend was just as awesome!

The kids and I took Mystic’s daughter to Sonic today. She turns 18 in just a few months and has never been. Consider that wrong righted. I love introducing people to new (fun!) things!
