There's A Hole In My Bucket - Summer Family Bucket List

The minions really loved knocking items off of bucket lists since we started the project last winter, and we've continued it each season.  I've been a little MIA on the blog front, but a lot of that was work in preparation for a summer filled with more time with Molly and Jack - which means more content, reviews, and everything else.  The kids are getting more and more involved in helping me crate these lists which is one of the reasons why they're getting a lot longer.   Most of these items are for the family, but some are for me as an added motivation for my 101 in 1001 goal/bucket list, and since I'm a little late posting this, we've checked a few items off already.

I love bucket lists because the have inspired us to book activities, appreciate what each season has to offer and get out and move, even when we were tempted to just curl up and binge on some Netflix - which when it's cold or rainy outside is really easy to do.  Use this to help build your own summer bucket list....and feel free to share suggestions.  Let's get out there and make some memories people!  Summer will be over before we know it!
