Summer Bucket List

They're all over the internet...

I think the first one I came across was this one called the "Summer of Awesome".  I loved the idea but was just back to work and knew I'd have no vacation time to use.  I figured I had enough on my plate just adjusting to going back to work.

This year, with help from Pinterest I came across similar ideas here and here.  Now, I'm not setting up anything nearly as crafty but have decided that a summer bucket list is in order.  The kids are going to be home all summer with Damian and I'm hopeful that this will help give us ideas of some fun things to do.

So here they are, in no particular order, our 2012 Summer Bucket List.
