Usually, I pack my July with tons of Summer activities and fun from my list. This year though my July was filled with work related activities, so I still have lots of things on my Summer Bucket List that I would like to mark off before it ends. So, what still needs to be marked off my list?
ONE // Attend a local festival. Several local festivals have already passed this year and I haven't attended a single one yet! In the beginning of September is the Honey Bee Festival in my home town and I am definitely not missing it. Local music and a funnel cake here I come.
TWO // Go stargazing. Living in the country it is easy to take the gorgeous night sky for granted. Before Summer ends I want to spend and evening outside with friends and/or family enjoying the view and some late night snacks.
THREE // Watch some fireworks. The rainy weather hampered my 4th of July fireworks show, but I will still see fireworks before Summer ends courtesy of my brother!
FOUR // Create a signature milkshake recipe. Summer is the perfect time for ice cream. Who doesn't love a good milkshake? I definitely need to create my own and serve it for my next guests.
FIVE // Host a BBQ. Tracy and I love to host events and provide delicious food. A BBQ and cook out would be perfect for us. We will make all the sides and dessert and our brother can do all the grilling.
SIX // Make ice cream sandwiches. Ok, see number 4 for the reason this needs to happen.
SEVEN // Spend some time out enjoying the sun. Let's get all of those little summertime activities in like tossing a Frisbee around, blowing bubbles, having a water balloon fight, etc.
EIGHT // Spend some time poolside. Earlier in the Summer I went to the beach, but since I have been home there has been no pools and no swimming. Something has to change people.
NINE // Make strawberry shortcakes. This dessert just oozes Summer. Plus it will be delicious and refreshing.
TEN // Learn something new. Tracy and I still want to take that cake decorating class.
