Summer Bucket List

Happy Almost Friday, Friends!   This week totally flew by, but I'm not complaining!   I'm so excited that it's almost summer-and I can't believe it's almost here.  The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer!  I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time outside this summer, grilling and just hanging out.  We want to also take the kids to fun places around Ohio & Michigan for some toddler friendly activities.   I thought I'd share some of things that are on our summer bucket list!   

  • The Toledo Zoo--We have a membership so we plan to go here a few times and take advantage of discounted tickets at other zoos!
  • Local/State Parks--The kids are really enjoying playgrounds right now, and we enjoy hiking, so we're excited to go to the park this summer!
  • Go to the beach!   We're lucky to live pretty close to Lake Erie, which has some nice beaches, even if the water doesn't always look the greatest!  Lol!
  • Marblehead Lighthouse-Speaking of Lake Erie, we have a beautiful lighthouse about 45 minutes away from our house!   It's one of my favorite places to go!
  • Camping!  We bought a new tent last year at Bass Pro, but haven't had an opportunity to try it out yet.  Nor have our kids been camping in a tent.  It could be super fun. Or it could be a train wreck.  
  • Family Vacation--I have vacation to use, so we want to try to go somewhere relatively close for a mini vacation.  There are some cool museums and small towns we might check out in Michigan over the summer!
  • Backyard Campfires--We got a fire pit for our wedding (5.5 years ago) and have yet to use it.  Whoops.   I'm looking forward to just hanging out by the fire at night, maybe roasting some marshmallows or making pizza pies!
  • Eating in the sunroom!  We usually eat dinner at our table in the kitchen, but when the weather is nice, we usually move out to the sunroom, where we have a patio set to dine at.   There's just something about eating outside that is just so nice!

There you have it, friends!   These are the major things we have planned so far for Summer 2017!   I'm sure we will come up with some other ideas also, but these will be fun to check off the list.  If anyone has any fun ideas for toddlers to do in the Midwest, send 'em my way!  

Until next time,
