Summer is practically here-yippee! I love summer-warm weather, fun things to do outside, laid back attitudes...If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you may remember that this time last year, I was recovering from ankle surgery, which meant I missed out on being able to do some of the fun summer things with my kids because I literally could not go anywhere with them for weeks. So, I am feeling all gung-ho this summer to do all the fun things. You may also remember from my blogs last summer, that while I may love fun summer activities, I am also a huge advocate of not over-committing. So, keep that in mind when you check out our summer .bucket list. Feel free to borrow as many (or as few) ideas for your own summer bucket list.
Strawberry picking - we just tried Jones Family Farm and it was great!
Drive in movie - Bengie's is a local tradition (my dad actually used to go there when HE was a kid, as did I) and I am so excited to take my kids there this summer!
Monster mini golf - a favorite for my kids (great for a hot day when you need an indoor activity)
Maryland State Fair
Have your own lemonade stand
Go to the beach
Splash Pad - the one at the Rotunda is small but great
Summer reading program at the library
Oriole's game - kids run the bases at every home Sunday game
Playground hopping - try a a few new ones you've never been to before!
Get snowballs, Rita's, ice cream - Snoasis have been my favorite snowballs since I was a kid!
Backyard water day (water balloons, water table, sprinkler, slip & slide)
Bowling - we like duckpin at Stoneleigh lanes
Hang at the pool
Cheers to a fun and memory filled summer.
