Summer is fading away fast and I feel like there is still so much fun to be had.
Today I want to have a little Summer Bucket List check in so we can see what we have done, what is left and hopefully get back on track so we can cross off all the things.
As of this morning this is where we are on our list.
Go to the pool
If there is anything we have rocked at this summer it has been logging a ridiculous amount of hours at the pool. My little girls have turned into golden brown beach babies even though I am spending half of our monthly budget buying sunblock.
It has been amazing watching their swimming skills grow more and more every day. We are currently in the middle of our swim lessons so I will share more on their progress in the upcoming weeks.
Family Ice Cream Dates
We have made more than one late night trip to Sonic for half price shakes this summer as a family and just last week the girls and I ruined our lunch by stopping by for half price cones an hour before lunch.
Sometimes ice cream for lunch is just a good idea.
We saw some big ones and lit off a few ourselves. Both girls were really into lighting off their own fireworks this year too.
You can read about our family trip to St. Louis here and here. We hit up downtown, the zoo, the science center, Magic House and a few other places. It was just what we needed to get away and recharge a bit. Russ and I are already scheming up ideas for somewhere new to visit next year.
Baseball was spent in a box at the Joplin Blasters game over 4th of July weekend. It was fantastic and we can not wait to go back again. Emily said "I just love basketball" #fail. Me too kid, me too. We clearly need to educate her a bit more in the sports department.
The girls had a birthday sleepover for their cousins birthday at Meme & Papa's house meaning mommy and daddy had an unexpected date night. We tried out a new local pizza place, stopped by the mall to pick up Russ' VERY late Fathers Day gift and ended our night with a quick stop by Aldi.
We like to live on the edge.
Trip To The Zoo
The zoo was part of our vacation and probably our favorite part. It was cool, drizzly and the perfect weather. St. Louis has an amazing, free zoo and I would love to go back the next time we go for a visit.
So over all I think we are pretty on track to finish our list. We are about halfway through summer and halfway through our list. Swim lesson are under way, a picnic with friend is scheduled this week and I finally bought a popsicle mold just the other day. Now if only I could just get that play date planned, I think we might actually have a shot at completing our list.
How is your summer bucket list going?
