Summer Bucket List

Technically we can already cross about half these things off the list, since we've recently gone to the beach, hiking, and swimming. (Not to mention a margarita to reward myself for finally going to the dentist a few weeks ago - there may be a piece of logic missing there, but it felt well deserved.) I'm thinking I can cram in a few more margaritas, plus more beach time, swimming, and hiking too. 

I took Ezzy to the local pool for the first time last week and he loved it. The kid section is half a foot to 1.5 feet deep, and it has a bunch of fountains that spray water. At first he just wanted to wade around and steer clear of the fountains, but once he realized he could splash mommy in the face he was obsessed. He kept redirecting the stream of water at me, and then laughing hysterically. Oh. that. kid. I was cracking up too though, his laugh is infectious. And an added bonus was that after an hour of wading he slept like a...baby? I assume that phrase was based on a baby that actually sleeps, and not my child. 

Some of the items on the list, like Yosemite, Disneyland, and San Francisco may take a few summers to complete, but it's a bucket list so I may as well dream big!

Some other less fun stuff that I have to take care of this summer are my teeth. I just got back from getting a root canal, and next up I need the crown plus a few fillings. Thankfully the pain has been relatively minor - unless you count the bill, which is pretty painful in and of itself. Take it from me people, do not wait years to see the dentist! It only gets more expensive the longer you wait.

What's on your bucket list this summer? I love hearing what fun activities everyone has planned :)
