15 Fun Ideas For your Family Summer Bucket List – Mamas and Minis Collective

Family Summer Bucket ListWho else is excited for Summertime? With warm weather here to stay (finally Utah), I’ve got lots of things planned for our family that I want to check off this Summer. Unfortunately, we don’t actually get a Summer break and with moving to a new house, it will prove harder to really just relax and have fun, but I am making it a mission to make sure my kids still have a fun Summer!! So week day nights and weekends will be when we plan to get our family summer bucket list checked off! Here’s 15 fun and attainable things I came up with for our list (if I add too many, I find that they won’t all be as achievable) and I am a love-to-check-things-off-the-list type of person!
