Happy first day of June! The beginning of June is always very symbolic for me: it means that the end of the school year is in sight and that summer break is right around the corner. Ever since becoming a mother, I look forward to summer break even more than I did prior to having a child. Summer break means that I get to spend more time with my little man than I get to during the school year since he does not go to daycare when I am home for the summer.
Now that he is two and a half, I’m incredibly excited about what lies ahead for my little family this summer. Earlier this week Jenn posted a Summer Bucket List on Facebook, which inspired me to work on putting one together myself. There are so many things on my bucket list for little family this summer including:
1. Going to a baseball game
Last summer we took little man to a minor league baseball game, which he loved. He really enjoyed being able to run the bases after the game. I want to take him to at least one, if not more than one, baseball game this year.
2. Meeting up with friends for play dates
Because what is not more fun than mommies and their kids meeting up for some fun together?!?
3. Going to the beach
We have plans to make at least one day trip to the beach this summer. Last summer little man had a blast on the one occasion that he got to play in the sand, and I’m sure he’ll have just as much fun, if not more fun, doing so again this year.
4. Going to the pool
My child would live in the water if I would let him. And what kind of summer would it be without at least a couple of visits to the pool?!?
5. Going to the zoo
Like many little kids, my little man is obsessed with animals. I have yet to take him to the National Zoo, and I’d like to change that this summer.
Of course, these five things aren’t all that I am looking forward to doing with my little man this summer. We have a jam packed calendar, and I cannot wait to make lots of great memories with him while I am on summer break.
QOTD: What is on your summer bucket list?
