A small town girl making the big city home. She loves everything DC, and is slowly introducing her one-year-old to the world of Smithsonians, monuments, cherry blossoms and the DMV. A perfect day in town would include breakfast at Eastern Market (or Founding Farmers), checking out the National Gallery of Art, a burger and/or shake at Good Stuff or sandwich from Taylor Made, the two mile walk around the monuments, and cupcakes from Sprinkles (or Georgetown Cupcake if the line isn't forever long) to go.

My 2013 Summer Bucket List

DC Mama - Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket Lists are a great way to make sure to get all the warm weather fun in without any regrets!

Memorial Day is over. It’s unofficially, officially summer in my world.

I am a warm-weather body, and I love it. I am a summer baby, my husband is a summer baby, and my baby is a summer baby. We are naturally made for summer.

I love the popsicles and sticky fingers, the sound of the ice cream man, the chalk figures decorating the sidewalk, the smell of barbeques, the hikes among the wildflowers and fireworks on the 4th of July.  We love summer.

Taking a note out of Not Just A Mommy’s book, we created our 2013 summer bucket list this past week, and I’m so excited to get started crossing things off!

My Summer Bucket List

I find that if I make a list, I’m more likely to not end up disappointed at the end of the summer. I typically try to squeeze too much into the few months of summer. With the humidity and traveling, I’m often left feeling overscheduled. This list is waaay simplified compared to previous summer bucket lists.

Here’s to hoping I’m more successful this time around!

If you haven’t made your list yet, check out the Summer Bucket List Challenge at The Happy Family Movement. They have tons of great ideas for things to add to your list, guides, prizes, a Facebook community and more.

    Love your list…especially the ‘can something’ one. I should add that to ours…after our garden comes in, which is also on our list 🙂 I posted ours on my blog… http://dawnypoo.blogspot.com/2013/05/join-summer-bucket-list-challenge-with.html

    Great list! We were working on ours yesterday. It may be time to try a baseball game as a family. Have fun!
