At the beginning of our vacation we wrote a summer bucket list. We are now into our sixth week of the holidays and we’ve been ticking lots of things off!
We have never written a bucket list before. Why?! It’s been the best thing for getting us out and about. There is always a ready-made plan available if we want it, we just need to take a look at our post-it covered cupboard and pick something.
We’ve had playdates and ridden scooters. We’ve had a water fight and been swimming, lots. We’ve eaten crisps, nice food, ice cream and visited our favourite local cafe (La Qchara). We’ve been to iHop and had picnics (but not yet ‘with cake’!).
We’ve read lots of books, been to the park and done lots of running. We’ve baked and done crafts and blown bubbles. We haven’t quite made it for a hike yet, but we have walked in the woods.
Yesterday we went to the deCordova Sculpture Park, which was one of my bucket list choices, and had a wonderful day. Post to follow!
This weekend we head up into New Hampshire to go to Storyland, and will hopefully tick off mini golf then too. Along with more nice food, picnics and swimming, of course :) We still have four weeks of holiday left to tick off a few of our bigger items; like visiting Maine, Connecticut and Cape Cod… We’ll see if we manage to fit them all in!
Amazingly, we haven’t yet made it to the beach! It’s been so hot, we’ve been sticking to shadier options.
We’ve had the odd grumpy day, with hot and tired children, but on the whole we are having a fabulous summer so far…
Our bucket list has been a huge success and I’m really looking forward to seeing how many more things we can do before vacation is over :)
How is your summer going?
