Summer Bucket List

     My husband is a resident here in beautiful Cleveland, and we have absolutely loved our time here. This is our last summer here, because next year we're headed back to Atlanta.
     Here's our summer bucket list- with a special emphasis on Cleveland!
    Not here? Come and visit! It's an awesome city..... Or just tweak it a little bit for your city. :)
    I'm planning on writing the list out on our chalkboard wall...

  1. Go on a picnic
  2. Cleveland Botanical Gardens
  3. Go on a nature walk in the Cleveland Metroparks
  4. Make a posterboard collage from magazine cutouts
  5. Camping in the backyard
  6. Slumber party with a friend
  7. Chalk art gallery on the driveway (I'll draw the frames, they make the art)
  8. Bowling.. I'm planning on using a Groupon for this one!
  9. Wash cars in the driveway.. with lots of bubbles, of course!
  10. Day of baking for friends and neighbors (then see #39)
  11. Build (or maybe just paint) a bird house and hang
  12. Design a shirt- paint, tie dye, markers? I have a feeling this will be worn alllll summer!

  14. Scavenger hunt around the house and yard
  15. Backwards day
  16. Cleveland children's museum
  17. Movie night- complete with popcorn and a borrowed movie
  18. Library- story time

  22. Memphis kiddie park
  23. Zoo
  24. Big indoor fort- using all sheets and blankets!
  25. Stargazing
  26. Sno cones (i have a sno cone machine that probably has dust on it.)
  27. Macaroni necklaces- paint and string with yarn
  28. Beach- mentor headlands
  29. Make lemonade- real lemons, real sugar, sell for 5 cents. :)
