Summer Bucket Lists

Every momma knows when summer hits, it doesn’t take long to hear a resounding “I’m bored”. In both the Carter and Bowman homes we like boredom. We believe it gives the kids an opportunity to be creative, help around the house and use their imaginations.

However, there are times when we want to have special things to fill our summer with and that’s why we love bucket lists!!

Last summer we got together as a family and wrote down a few things we wanted to do that summer. Some were small activities, some were big, but no matter the size we wrote them down and had a blast completing the list as a family. So this summer we were excited to do it all again!

This year our Bowman Summer Bucket list includes, hiking to a waterfall, lunch with Daddy at his office, a trip to the water park among other things.

We can’t wait to start the family fun and wanted to share more ideas with you, so your family could have a summer bucket list too!!
