{2016 Summer Bucketlist Update}

Confession time - Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. Until this year! I have enjoyed summer so much that it's almost tied with how much I love fall. I think it's because Mason had 11 or so weeks off of school and I got to spend so much time with him. We had a blast this summer and made so many amazing memories. I'm still not ready to give Mason completely back to school yet {and we are almost 3 weeks in}!! Thank God for the Labor Day weekend so early in the school year. Starting big/public school has put such a wrench in our style. We're so used to packing up and leaving anytime we want and now we have to work around a school schedule. Blah!! Anyhow, lets just say that I am more grateful for summer {crazy hot temps and all} than I have ever been.

We put a pretty big dent in our summer bucketlist this year! I've blogged about almost all of it, so I've included the links below.

There's still time for geocaching and making ice cream, but I am ready to start my fall bucketlist! How was your summer? What was the best part?


  1. You guys really did have an amazing summer! While I love routine, I will miss the summer when we could do what we wanted whenever. I can't even imagine how I'll feel when Noah's in school all day every day!

  2. What a great summer you had! And you crossed so many things off of that list!

  3. You sure put a hurting on this list! And yes it totally stinks going back to school! I hate being tied down!!!

  4. You guys completely rocked your bucket list for summer! I've loved seeing you check things off and all of your beautiful photos. Can't wait to see what you do this fall. :)

  5. You did a great job! There's still totally time for the rest!

  6. You guys did a great job!! So exciting! And we need to take Jacob geocaching as well... I think he would LOVE IT!

  7. WOW! You guys had a great summer!!! And goodness, look at how many times you went camping?! You put me to shame. I think I can count on one hand how many times I've been in my entire life!

  8. You have been so busy this summer doing so many great things! You still have a week to knock those last two off your list!

  9. That is a summer for the books!! Did you take the first picture with your post title? It is awesome!

  10. Im about to play catch up on your blog from my phone... just warning you :).

    As my girls get older I love summer more and more too. Y'all had an amazing one. Even if you didn't complete your list!
