Summer Bucket List {2014}


Last year, we had so much fun working on our Summer Bucket List that I knew it would become an annual tradition for our family. I've spent the last few weeks thinking up ideas for summer fun and finally have our list all put together.

We're aiming to do quite a few things that we did last summer because the kids will still enjoy them, and we're adding on some fun new adventures, too! Most of our activities are for young kids, because we are planning to come up with lots of fun things to do with a toddler and preschooler in Kansas City!

I'll be updating the list with links about our adventures as we complete them!

-Watch (maybe catch) lightning bugs. We saw some lightning bugs at the water park at Grand Country Resort and also spotted lots of them on a family walk!

-Travel to Omaha. Done! We stayed at the Hilton Omaha, went to the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, and played at the Omaha Children's Museum.

-Ride Thomas the Tank Engine: The Thrill of the Ride Tour. Done!

-Have a picnic at the park.


-Visit the City Market.
 

-See a show at Starlight Theatre (parents only!). Done! We saw The Wizard of Oz, We Will Rock You, and Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
 
-Pick Peaches.

-Go to the Downtown Days festival. Done!

-Visit Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead.

-Complete the Summer Reading Program at the library.

-Visit Wonderscope Children's Museum.

-Travel to Branson. Done - and it was awesome. You can read my top attractions for families with toddlers in Branson.

-Travel to Indianapolis. We cancelled this idea. Too much travel in the summer. Maybe we'll tackle it in the fall.

-Go swimming. Done! We swam at the Hilton Omaha and had tons of water play at White Water!

-Draw with sidewalk chalk.

-Walk to Poppy's (a local shop) for ice cream. So, we haven't accomplished this yet, but we did eat at Poppy's during Downtown Days so I'm thinking that counts at this point.

-Sew name pillows for the kids (like the ones in my shop).

-Cross something off my 30 by 30 list

-Make popsicles.

-Make garden stepping stones (like these).

-Visit all of the parks in our hometown. 

Update: this wasn't on our original list, but we squeezed in a fun visit to LEGOLAND Discovery Center and SEA LIFE Aquarium, too!


What do you think? Anything I missed? It seems likely that we'll be super busy all summer long! Stick around all summer long as we work on our bucket list and have all sorts of family adventures.
