Summer Bucket List

With the school year winding down, summer is fast approaching. Being the busy, on-the-go family we are, I like making a bucket list of things we want to do. This adds some excitement to the summer and helps keep the littles from getting bored. Bonus if the events on the bucket list are free or educational!

Here is a list of the things we want to get completed this summer!

  • Mini-golfingfire_pit_Night
  • Fishing at Big Creek
  • Picnic at the park on the square in Polk City
  • Visit Ledges State Park
  • Swimming at the water park
  • Bowling at Bass Pro Shop
  • Drive-in movie
  • Experiencing RAGBRAI
  • Visiting the Lost Island Nature Center in Ruthven, Iowa
  • Sprinkler party in the backyard
  • Coloring a mural on the driveway
  • Camp in the backyard
  • Fire pit with S’mores
  • Check out the Sculpture Park
  • Bike across High Trestle Trail Bridge
  • Make homemade ice cream

    Ledges is on my bucket list! I wanted to for mother’s day but the weather was cold! I am going to look into that nature center too.
    I have a bucket list in my head:)
