Summer Bucket List – What’s Left?

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty appalled by the fact that summer is already halfway through. For me, summer always goes by too fast, and oftentimes I begrudgingly transition into fall feeling like I missed out on summer’s awesomeness. Even though this summer is flying by, especially with a newborn in the house, I’m determined to squeeze all the bug juice I can get out of summertime. To make sure I don’t miss out on anything, I made a summer bucket list. Many of these items I’ve already checked off, and many I am still looking forward to. What sort of things are on your summer bucket list this year?
