I’m jumping on the bandwagon and sharing what we have on our summer bucket list this year! Our summers are always jam packed with activities from birthday parties to evening wakeboarding sessions, but there are a few things I really want us to focus on doing this summer.
Hiking // Hiking is a huge part of our life and some of our favorite hikes are more doable in the summer (due to mountain snow). I want us to take advantage of the cool mornings and evenings and go on at least 2 hikes a month.
BBQs // We honestly haven’t ever been the best at breaking out the barbecue as much as I’d like. We’re changing that this year. I want us to barbecue once a week. Give me burgers, give me steak, give me brats (all with a side of veggies of course). Whatever it is I want to be eating outside inhaling the propane fumes.
Farmer’s Markets // The Seattle area has some awesome summer farmer’s markets. Almost every day of the week you can find a farmer’s market happening. I would like to check out a few different market’s this summer and enjoy all that the local economy has to offer.
Weekend in Chelan // Lake Chelan is like our second home. We love spending as much time there as possible. The summers at the lake are amazing so I’m hopeful that we’ll make at least one weekend trip over this year.
Evening walks // We started doing this last year, but haven’t faithfully kept up with it. So this summer I want us to do more after dinner family walks. Little A is doing great at riding her balance bike, so it’s the perfect time for us to get out in the evening as a family and enjoy each other’s company.

And that’s it! Like I said, our summers are already so busy that I don’t want to set expectations for us to go, go, go and try to pack in 100 different activities. I just want us to enjoy this time of the year, preferably outdoors as much as possible. 🙂
Hijack alert! This is Huebie, and I have taken over Tiff’s computer. One item I would personally like to add to our bucket list is: Come Hell or High-Water (Bible References I believe), we will get the %*#&$*#&@ stump out of our back yard! APPARENTLY, after 9023672346834 swings of the axe and shoveling literally megatons of dirt, Super-Tree McBranchFace is still stuck in Mother Earth. But, thanks to the power of internal combustion and clutchy-geary-chain-ish things, I shall win. This summer. At some point. Boom.
Happy Wednesday love bugs!
