Painting and checking off our bucket list

Checking activities off of our summer bucket list – great fun!  We spent a quiet, family day on Middle Sis’ birthday (her choice). Posh Paint is a great local studio where you can paint your own pottery.

We have been several times but always enjoy creating our own stuff. Big Sis painted a plate. Lil Sis painted a hand mirror – “mirror, mirror on the wall!”

Middle Sis worked on a wall hanging. They have some great things. We might make our own Christmas gifts this year 🙂

Our summer bucket list – all about making memories!! Love the family time. It really hit me hard this week as Middle Sis became a teenager 🙂  We only have a short amount of time with our children. Those years will go by too fast. So we are creating bucket lists and checking off our activities! FUN!!!!!
