Summer 2013 Bucket List

Typically, we’re pretty boring around here. We just hang out at home and break up sibling fights, clean toilets, watch Netflix and change diapers. So this Summer, we wanted to make a little more enjoyable without breaking the bank. A couple of weeks ago, Jonathan, myself and the kiddos got together and made a list of things that we would like to do this Summer that were free or cheap, with a couple splurges.

I was pretty surprised at the amount of things and the creativity of things that they came up with. We realize that all of them may not be completed, but it will be fun to do as much as possible. I *plan* to document each thing that we cross off of our list this Summer and share it with you all. So we’ll see how this goes. Here is our list.

  1. Build a sand castle.
