Summer Bucket List

Since summer is officially more than a week in, we've started on our summer bucket list. Do you have one?  We just started ours this year, we sat down together making a list of things we wanted to do before school starts again. After going to Disney last year, we knew we would be staying local this summer. Of course every ounce of summer must be used - wisely and as much to mom's advantage as possible. 

We were able to get a lot of the Chicago stuff done in one day using the Chicago Trolley to cart us around the city most of the day.  They have 13 stops in the city and you can get on and off the trolley at any one of them, hang out for awhile at whatever destination and catch another one when you're ready to move on. It really is a great way to get around the city seeing the popular sites without having to hail a cab between stops. Before I get too far into a trolley tangent, let's review the list.  
Here's what we've done so far:

Double Decker Trolley
Crown Fountain

Cloudgate (The Bean) 

Lego Store

Hershey Store

American Girl Place

The Ledge at Willis Tower

We can't forget the yummy Garretts Popcorn we had to get before we boarded the train back home.  That's a lot in one day right?

Albanese Candy Factory also checked off the list.

Here's what we have left to check off:
Bike Rides
Bon Fire
Wisconsin Dells
Indiana Beach
4 Square
Drive-In Movie
Rail Cats Baseball Game
Scavenger Hunt
Deep River Waterpark
Rainforest Cafe
Mall of America
Eye Doctor

I added the last two to make them sound more fun.  They are more fun if they're on a fun list right? Regardless, they both need to be done before school gets back in so maybe if they are on the fun list, I won't forget to get them done! It's quite a bit to cram in in the next seven weeks but I'm hoping to get it all in there. Will keep you updated as we check things off!

What's on your Summer Bucket List?

I love your bucket list! My summer bucket list includes finding more than 50 geocaches (you should look into it. kids love it!), going to every Lake Metropark and I'd like to add Cleveland Metroparks (I live in Ohio). :) I also need to get my home in order. That sounds fun, right? ;)

So? How is the list doing now that summer is just about over?

Ha! The picture at the Albanese Candy Factory reminds me of the one we took as I believe you were sporting similar glasses!
