Summer Bucket List

There is so much I want to do this summer that I created a Summer Bucket List. I want to appreciate Northeast Ohio a little more and really enjoy this summer so I have researching some places to check out plus in addition to some things we have talked about doing but never gotten around to. I tried to get a mix of kid and adult activities (but Lincoln will be accompanying us on most of these trips.)

This may be completely unreasonable and is not set in stone. I love to plan so I wanted to get a list going and I will just call it a work in progress. I plan on giving updates and sharing what we do or don’t accomplish and how the list evolves over the Summer. When I say Summer I am basically referring to the months where it is warm enough to enjoy being outside in Northeast Ohio :)

I’m going to break this up into a couple of different categories. Clearly doing something that is five minutes away is going to be much easier than anything that is an hour away or more. We’ve actually already started working through the list so I already can cross off a couple of things.
