Summer is a time for getting outside and trying new things. As a supply teacher, summer is downtime but I have a job at a daycare to keep me busy however, I will have many days off especially in August. In order to prevent myself from just chilling on my days off, I decided to create a Summer Bucket List to hold myself accountable. 
Here is my Summer Bucket List:

1. Go to a Blue Jays Game: The Toronto Blue Jays did a really good job last year and made it to the play-offs and I actually took the time to learn about baseball and how it works. Now that I know some of the rules to baseball I think it would be fun to see a baseball game in Toronto.

2.  Enjoy a day at the beach: I love going to the beach and I can't wait to grab some friends and drive to the beach. Work on my tan, grab an ice cream and just enjoy the day.

3. Ride a bike along a trail: I used to love going on bike rides with my best friend but the bike I had was no longer rideable so I need to find a new bike and go on a trail ride. 

4. Practice my Ukulele: My best friend bought me a DIY Ukulele and I built it so now I need to learn to play it. I work with little children and I would love to bring it in and play it for them.

5. Clean and organize my spare room: The spare room is a disaster and needs to be organized and cleaned out. Definitely a job for the summer.

6. See fireworks on Canada Day: I don't always see fireworks on Canada Day but this year I have a wedding rehearsal on the same day and we will be in the area where the fireworks are held so I should be able to enjoy them.

7. Read 5 Books: Being a huge bookworm you would think that I have read a lot of books this year but I have been so busy that I am way behind my Goodreads book challenge. Reading 5 books will not catch me up but it will at least get me reading again.

8. Watch a movie at the drive-in theatre: I love going to the drive-in because you get to see two movies in one night. I can't wait to go and buy some popcorn and watch some good summer movies.

9. Enjoy a fun day with my nephews: I will most likely have many fun days with my nephews but I want to plan a really fun day where we have a water gun fight, make bubbles and blow them and play games outside.

10. Learn how to use a barbecue: This might sound really sad but I rarely barbecue. There is always someone who is the "grill master" but I would like to become better at using the barbecue myself.

What are some things on your summer bucket list? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I haven't been to the drive ins since I was a little girl, this really reminded me of how much I'd love to go again now that I'm older.

  2. What a great list!! What 5 books do you have in mind? Any good ones?

  3. I feel like all these lists I've been seeing have 'go to a drive-in movie' on them, it makes me really want to go to one too!

  4. Oh I love it!! We have a drive in theatre a town over from the one I grew up in in IL, but I'm not sure if there are any around me in Michigan. I should totally look it up because drive ins are so fun!

  5. We can't drive-in to movies in people never think about that), because it's still triple digits after dark! Although it looks like fun on TV!

  6. Reading more books is a goal of mine.

  7. i would love to learn how to play the Uke sometime!

  8. Are you from Toronto? A fellow canadian?? I hope you get to go to that game. It's super fun!

  9. Love your summer bucket list! You're definitely going to be crossing them off. Now you have me wanting to make my own too.

  10. I want to watch fireworks on the fourth, go kayaking, spend a day at the beach, and go hiking on a new trail!

  11. I can actually attest to the fact that the food was delicious because, unlike other hosts who I hear never get to eat a bite, there was a staff member by my side every so often kindly reminding me to eat! At wedding venues NYC we received the best possible service.
