Summer Bucket List Review

What better day to review our 2012 Summer Bucket List than on the last day of summer. 

From our list of 35 suggestions we almost completed half of them!  Oh well, the summer felt busy enough and I've got a head start on next year's list!  I have to remember that we also managed some adventures that weren't on the list...
  1. Biodome in Montreal July 31
  2. Farmers Markets * Metcalfe June 16, Chesterville July 7, Kemptville
  3. Busker Festival:  The weekend this was on we went on our first camping trip as the Piche 5!
  4. Have a picnic July 7
  5. Visit Mackenzie King Estates: Nope!
  6. Fly a kite: Nope!
  7. Watch planes take off:  On Damian and Caelan's visit to the Aviation Museum they did watch a helicopter take off... That's got to count for something!
  8. Pick strawberries and make strawberry shortcake June

  13. Changing of the Guard on Parliament Hill: Nope!

  15. Play a game of mini golf done
  16. Go for a walk on the beach July 8
  17. Blow bubbles:  We did this lots before the Bucket List was made but never after, go figure?

  28. Play Daddy's tire game: Nope!
  29. Enjoy a root beer or orange soda float July 8
  30. Prepare our entire dinner by campfire:  I'm going to blame this one on the dry weather and fire bans that lasted all summer long!
