And so it shall be written.
Our official Summer Bucket List for this year. It might look a little ambitious, but thankfully we have already done a few things on the list.
As for the rest? Many, many free and fun activities. Many plans to discover special local areas that we have not yet visited. And really just an all ’round determination to eek every bit of joy we can out of the summer season.
Despite the non-stop rain, rain, rain, humidity, humidity, humidity cycle that has been the last three weeks.
Some of the items are favorites repeated from years’ past, some are new to us. All of us.
But all of it will make for a lively summer. And if we don’t finish it? That’s a-ok too because half the fun is trying.
A large majority of our Summer Bucket List items are outside, because we want to enjoy the season as much as possible. I mean, two 5ks?! I can’t even wait. The kids are doing both of them, and they have no idea the fun that’s in store for them on a Color Run.
The folks at Coca-Cola have kicked off this year’s American Is Your Park campaign, and they sent us a box full of fun items to encourage us to play. As if we needed more encouragement! But this time, they have sent along a little fun for you too! Sitting on my desk is a Coca-Cola beach ball and a $20 Subway gift card for me to give to one lucky reader. That could be YOU! All you have to do is take a photo of yourself, your kids, your family (or even your pets!) being active at a park, hashtag it #TakeItToThePark and tag me so I can see it (@cateomalley), whether it be on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. I’ll choose one to receive the gift package. Deadline is this Sunday at midnight, EST.
Pretty sweet way to kick off the summer!
Now … what is on YOUR Summer Bucket List?? We’d love to hear some inspiration from you! Sometimes that’s where our very best ideas come from!
