Summer Bucket List - Update Week 5

Week 5 has ended. We didn't accomplish anything on our bucket list this week, but they had a wonderful time.  This week they each got to have some one on one time with their grandma, and that meant they each got to have a short date with me!  They completed a week of swimming lessons - Mr. J has now passed onto swim kids level 2 - which is amazing - to think that even last summer he was still nervous around water. You would never know now that up until he was 6 he was TERRIFIED of swimming.  

In addition to swimming lessons, I also took the boys swimming at my God-Father's place this week. It was the perfect time to spend an afternoon in the pool, as most of the week was hot and humid. They also played with Niki and Sarah a bit (two 12 year olds that live down the street).  The girls are great with the kids, and are always a welcomed site when they ring our bell!  This week we will be going to a movie, and I am also hoping to cross off at least one other item.  Yesterday we went to see Marvel Universe Live!
  1.  family bike ride
  2.  neighbourhood water fight...not a waterfight, but water play!
  3.  visit different local parks
  4.  go to the cottage
  5.  go for ice cream at carp custom creamery  - we went to Laura Secord
  6.  Mr. J wants to learn to skateboard
  7.  strawberry picking  we went AGAIN! Week 1 and Week 2!!
  8.  swimming
  9.  visit saunders farm
  10.  visit valley view farm
  11.  mini golf
  12.  driving range
  13.  sleepover at grandpa and grandma's
  14.  movie theater with Syd
  15.  play with cousins
  16.  ice cream from the ice cream truck
  17.  play outdoor games in the backyard 
  18.  bake together 
  19.  for the kids to read at least a book a week (10 books) (Mr. K and I have read 15 together, and Mr. J finished 6 - so we are definitely on the right track!)
Do you make a bucket list for your family? If you do - please feel free to link it up here!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful summer so far and there is still a month left! I know I have a few items left on my bucket list too and am looking forward to getting to them :)

  2. Seems like you have been having a wonderful summer! Lots of time to fulfill your list.

  3. I personally don't think it's important to complete the bucket list, the main thing is that the kids are enjoying themselves and not getting bored :-)

  4. To me it sounds like you're having a great summer so far, no need to follow a bucket list, it's just another thing to worry about, just do what you want and have fun!!

  5. Sounds like you are having a great summer, hopefully you will be able to get your bucket list done before the end of August! (Judy Cowan)

  6. That's an awesome list! We should really create one for the rest of August. Have a great summer!

  7. What a wonderful list and idea! Marvel Universe Live looks like a great show!

  8. I love the idea of a bucket list! we usually have stuff we want to do, but have never written it down. The only sad part is when everything is done, so is summer vacation :(

  9. we have such a list- not a bucket list - ours is a life list. thanks

  10. I made a bucket list for the summer as well. I still have a few items on it.

  11. Great idea having a summer bucket girl is still fairly young so our days are spontaneous and we go with the flow. Yesterday we woke up and decided to just hop in the car and be tourists at the falls.....was a great day!

  12. This is a really nice list. Sounds like a Summer of FUN!!
