  1. LOVE these! I just created a list last week and had so much fun thinking of things. I love the camping in the yard idea, even though my little gal is young – I think she’d get a kick out of it!

  2. These are some great summer bucket list items, I think I want to find a fresh fruit farm & camping in the backyard sounds fun. Another one i would add is to enter a charity race as a family , maybe like 2miles. Thanks for sharing!
