At the beginning of summer the kids and I came together and we pulled together a list of activities we wanted to do over our summer holidays.
A great way to keep us busy and focused so we didn’t loose our entire summer in a blur of video games and tv shows.
So far we have built a flower garden, visited the zoo and had a Picnic while we were there.
Yesterday we checked off two more items.
Big daddy built a fire pit out of castlestone bricks.
This was the first campfire we have had in a few years and the first one for the littlest.
Im not sure who was more excited the kids myself?
We are going to have to work on fire safety rules as the kids were up and out if their chairs more times than I care to remember.
We roasted marshmallows over the fire and Sang campfire songs plus we attempted to star gaze.
When your smack Dab in a city the surrounding light pollution makes star gazing harder but not impossible.
I was tempted to drag the tent out and set it up but camping in the backyard isn’t quite as exciting as sleeping in the mountains. We might not check everything off of our bucket list but we sure are having fun!!
I think I might dig up a frozen fruit Popsicle recipe so we can enjoy them around the fire tonight.
What about you?
What kind of activities have you checked off your summer bucket list?
