Our Summer Bucket List

July 7, 2016·

I realize we are now almost halfway through July. YIKES. This summer is flying by! We have been doing a ton of traveling and I think I’ve just blinked and time has passed. Woops.

Well, at the beginning of the “summer” (really the middle of May when Lilly got out of school), we put together a little “Summer Bucket List” of things we wanted to do this summer. We’ve already done some of these things, but I thought it might be fun to share what we want to do (and also hold me a little more accountable for actually getting out of the house and DOING stuff!)
