Perspective: Summer Bucket List

This Summer my boys and I are on quite a tight budget. It’s not the end of the world, but we just need to try and make the best of what this time offers…and these bucket list ideas are Memories that I know will last a lifetime. What is on your summer bucket list?

I really want to pack up a picnic dinner ( cold boiled potatoes, popcorn, skittles, and gummy bears)…nutrition is not on the menu…and head to the historic Benjies drive in movie theater. I went as a young girl…I remember it like yesterday. It was soooo cool. And they serve MALT MILKSHAKES TOO.

Yup…This Girl loves her crabs. And I hope to be able to make this happen.

I have always wanted to roam the beaches with the wild horses at Asateque Island…Just a short drive from Annapolis heading towards the beach. Make a day of it…picnic, guitar, football, sun and sand. I can’t imagine a better day.

In Ocean City, NJ…on the boardwalk, is the Haunted Golf Putt Putt. I love all things scary…especially in the Summer time. It is like a tease for the Halloween season just ahead. I love OCNJ. It is so much better than OCMD. Very family friendly. And just Awesome. We stay in Atlantic City at the Borgata for free (if you gamble, you can get comp rooms). It is a short drive to OCNJ

Well…I have been saying this for two years. My Achilles surgery put this on hold, but this summer, I am good to go! You can rent a paddleboard and paddle through downtown. Let’s just hope I stay afloat…LOL.

Fahrenheit…At Hershey Park. I want to be brave. I do. But I chicken out every year. I’m doing it this year…I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

Sounds Simple. But sometimes we forget the magic of simplicity and being a kid. I am planning on making one fabulous castle this year. I’ll post my masterpiece in a later post.

There is NOTHING more fun than people watching at the MD State Fair. Oh…and eating a turkey leg and cheesecake on a stick. shhhh.

We make Smores year round, but there is just something magical about the open flame in a fire pit, under the summer stars….with the fireflies buzzing around the smoke. I love a summer night. Fire. Smores. Don’t forget the ghost stories.

This summer I really hope to connect with my boys and create memories to carry them into the coming teenage years. Love to all.
