Is anyone else as excited about summer as I am? Dave and I have so much we want to do this summer. And since you know I’m all about making lists, I wanted to share our summer bucket list with you!
Take Advantage of Our Outdoor Space
Now that we have our own home, one of my absolute favorite things about the house is the gorgeous, huge fenced-in backyard with an awesome deck. First of all, Leia L-O-V-E-S this yard after being stuck in an apartment with no off-leash yard for three years. And I can’t wait to spend my entire summer sitting out on our patio furniture with a drink in my hand while my awesome husband cooks up something yummy on the grill.
Every year my extended family goes on a big camping trip together for 6 days. It’s always been one of my absolute favorite parts of the year and as a kid, my cousins and I would spend literally the entire year counting down to it. I love that years later, my family is still at it each year. This year, along with the big family camping trip, I would love for Dave, Leia and me to take a few camping trips of our own and check out a few new areas of Wisconsin.
Hit the Beach
Dave and I definitely haven’t taken enough advantage of the local beaches since living in Madison, which is something we need to change this summer for sure. Going to the beach has always been one of my favorite summer activities!
Grow a Garden
I remember when I was a kid and my parents had a garden. I dreaded being asked to weed the garden. And now, 20 years later, I’m seriously pumped about the chance to grow my own garden! The first year we lived in our house we moved in a bit late in the season to get the garden ready, but I’m excited to give it another shot this year!
Take All the Photos
If there is one area of blogging that I really haven’t embraced, it’s photography. Sure, I would love to be able to take all the pretty pictures. And I’ve got the fancy camera, so I really have no excuse. Unfortunately, I really haven’t taken the time to learn the ins and outs and better my photography. Since we’re (hopefully) going to be super active this summer and spending all kinds of time outside, I feel like this is the perfect time to really take all the photos! So stay tuned for that!
