Summer 2012 Bucket List

Sitting around the dinner table! I love the times where we all sit down together. Conversations are always interesting. Sometimes I hear things about friends that I really wish I didn’t hear. Yet I am gratefully that the girls are willing to share things with us. Sometimes I wonder if these three silly girls weren’t suppose to be boys. The Man doesn’t help during these times. My favorite saying during these times – “I wish that I could get through one meal without a discussion about bodily functions :)”  Sometimes the giggling gets OUT OF CONTROL! Would I ever trade any of those moments? Absolutely not!

Last week during dinner, we created our Summer 2012 bucket list. Another opportunity to create great memories!!The only rule was that everyone had to agree on the item before it was put on the list. I was so thankful for that rule when bungee jumping and sky diving were mentioned 🙂

We might have to add things as we go, but for now this is our list. We have even marked a few items off already!

  • Make tye die t-shirts
  • have a lemonade stand
  • go blueberry picking – DONE!

  • try new blueberry recipes – DONE! We have made blueberry pound cake and blueberry cobbler. Both were wonderful
  • Find, at least, 20 Mardi Gras dogs throughout the city and take pictures with each one
  • go bowling and learn how to keep score (okay, the learn how to keep score part wasn’t really approved by everyone)
  • play in the rain
  • play putt-putt
  • have a water balloon battle
  • make homemade ice cream – DONE! Got a new ice cream maker and have made homemade ice cream twice
  • go to Blue Bayou
  • paint pottery at Posh Paint
  • go to Cafe Du Monde for breakfast
  • drive to the most southern point of Louisiana
  • ride the Canal St Ferry to Algiers
  • go to the Satchmo SummerFest
  • watch fireworks from the levee
  • attend a Chick-fil-a grand opening event
  • go to a Zephyr’s game
  • go on a cruise
  • build sand castles
  • serve the Lord through serving together (unsure of what the exact activity will be)
  • do a high ropes course

Afterwards, I found this great comminity of friends that were joining together to make great summer memories. Click over and join the movement to create happy family memories
