Bucket List for the Summer of 2013

Wow, I can't believe that we are already into the 4th summer of our bucket lists.  We are getting so many things on our list, it amazes me that we can get even half of it completed.

This year I let each girl pick out the 5 things they wanted to do most and 'of course dad and I also get to do somethings we have been wanting to do since moving back to our home town area.  It came down to about 33 things that we want to see in the Mi/Oh area! 

Summer is upon us and we have started early.....the longest day of summer has past us and we have already done 2 things on list! Now if we had seen the summer Super moon, that would have topped the list

Here it is (in no particular order):

  1. Swimming in an outdoor pool
  2. Water park day & zip lining
  3. Indoor trampoline center
  4. xChildren's Museum in Grand Rapids
  5. Toledo Art Museum
