Our Summer Bucket List

Well hello June!  You have greeted us with eighty to one hundred degree days and we are loving you!  Over the last few days we have taken full advantage of the sunshine.  The girls have smelled of sunscreen, had sand in every crevice, and sticky cheeks from frozen smoothie popsicles.  I have fallen asleep early each night from exhaustion and a very full heart.

So even if summer hasn't officially begun, we're in summer mode over here.  Tonight Eric and I started talking about what we want to do this summer and we created a summer bucket list!  I've never made a summer bucket list before, but thought I'd share ours in hopes that it inspires you to do some fun new things with your family!

Hello Baby Brown's Summer Bucket List

1. Go to the zoo.  We have a zoo pass so I want to make sure we take advantage of them.  Random lunches or afternoons roaming the zoo with the girls?  Count me in.

2. Visit new parks and splash pads.  Sloan is a total park junkie, so I love finding new ones to take her to.  There are a ton of splash pads in and around Portland, we plan on spending lots of afternoons cooling off at splash pads.

3. Evening walks and walktails.  We love going on family walks and plan on taking many strolls around the neighborhood this summer, walktails in hand.

4. Go to the beach.  We live about two hours from the coast and plan on taking the girls this summer. It'll be Phayre Bear's first beach trip!  And Sloan has been dying to fly a kite, so we'll need to check that off of our list too!

5. Go boating!  We recently bought a (new to us) boat and plan on spending many afternoons cruising the river.  As well as picnic dinners on the boat and maybe even a overnight island camping trip (mayyyyybe).

6. Take me out to the ball game.  We love going to Mariner games and spending time in our old city.  We can't wait to visit this summer.  Bring on all the hard cider and garlic fries.

7. Go on hikes.  Oregon is beautiful and we can't wait to explore this summer.

8. Visit new restaurants and find more with outside seating!  There's something about sitting outside that makes a meal even better.

9. Spend more lazy days at home running through the sprinklers, lounging on the hammock, playing in the sandbox, and I might even try to work in the garden.

10.  Spend more evenings outside, just Eric and I, with a cocktail in hand.  We're hoping to do some work in our backyard this summer so that it feels like more of a sanctuary!

I hope you found some good ideas and I encourage you to make a summer bucket list with your family.  We are so excited for all of our summer adventures as a family of four this year!
