Now that Labor Day has come and gone, what better time to see how we did on our good ole Summer Bucket List.
//Try as many flavors of shaved ice as possible//
We definitely had our fair share and I’m happy to report my favorites were pink lemonade with a close second going to pomegranate. Of course the boys loved blue raspberry (with a squirt of sour spray) and J’s basic AF with grape being his favorite.
//Go on a picnic//
Instead of my picnic basket I used a Walmart sack, but what I lacked in picnic style we made up for in fun.
//Camp in our living room//
As always, one of the boys’ favorite things to do.
//Make homemade popsicles//
Oops. Is there such a thing as fall flavored popsicles? I’m thinking sangria flavor for me, cranberry something for the kids.
//Fly a kite//
J and I enjoyed this more than the kids who were done after 3 minutes. Did I mention it took 10 minutes to set the kites up.
//Explore 3 new (to us) state parks//
No new state parks, but we did visit a local one and explore a cave.
//Go Berry Picking//
Unfortunately the strawberries came in early this year so they were already gone by the time we went but we did get several buckets full of blueberries.
//Visit the farmer’s market//
Couldn’t leave the market without peaches, corn, and a smoothie, naturally.
//Watch a movie in the park//
It was technically the football field instead of a park, but it was outdoors so that counts right?
//Attend a baseball game//
//Go to the state fair//
After seeing the horrifying accident at the Ohio State Fair a few weeks before our state fair started, we were all okay with sitting this year out.
//Make homemade strawberry shortcake//
There was no shortcake making but I did make strawberry cream cheese banana bread. And I can’t find a picture of it. But I swear I did.
//Make a bird feeder//
Does a wind chime count?
//Go on a nature scavenger hunt//
//Trip to Arkansas//
We didn’t make it to Arkansas, but we did go on vacation to Colorado.
//Summer Reading Program at our Library//
Finally one we finished 🙂 Not only did the boys complete all their reading minutes, they each got their names entered into a raffle and Ben won a huge Lego set.
//Make homemade ice cream//
And there you have it. While there were definitely some things we didn’t get to, there was also a lot we did that didn’t make the list. Did you do a Summer Bucket List? If so, were you able to check everything off of it?
