Summer Bucket List 2019

For the past few summers, Parker and I have brainstormed a "Summer Bucket List" - a group of ideas and outings that we want to do over the break in school. Some of the list items (visiting the botanical garden, going to concerts in the park) we always do several times anyway, but Parker is like his Mama and loves a list! He also loves crossing each item off as we get to it. This past week, we finally got to the very last item on our 2019 list, perfect timing as school is starting on Wednesday (side note: I blinked and summer was over). Here's what we've been up to:

1. Blueberry Picking at Zook's Orchard

2. Cook Museum of Natural Science

3. Dinner at the Pool - We always order in so it's a win/win as this Mama doesn't have to cook!

4. Game Night - Parker being the old soul that he is picked out the retro edition of the board game Clue to add to our collection. 

5. Bake Peach Crisp

6. Bowling

7. Fireworks

8. See a Baseball Game - Nashville Sounds

9.  Feed the Ducks at Big Spring

10. Have a Lemonade Stand - Proceeds benefitting the Huntsville Public Library

11. Go Out for Ice Cream 

12. Get New Books at the Bookstore - Parker's favorites are the Nancy Drew Clue Books, the Magic Tree House Series and The Hardy Boys Secret Files Collection.

13. Movie Night - Parker selected Toy Story 2 in preparation for our Mama/Parker date to the theatre to see Toy Story 4. 

14. Breakfast for Dinner - Another win for this Mama, so easy and Parker gets a kick out of it!

15. Farmers Market

16. Visit the Huntsville Botanical Gardens - We made it here many times over the summer! Sometimes meeting friends, sometimes heading over on a whim, having picnics, swinging in the hammocks, visiting the butterflies, and tie dying shirts on one of the kids days! HSVBG is my favorite place here in town. 

17. Jumping at Altitude

18. Concerts in the Park 

19. Water Balloons

20. Make a Summer Playlist
