Summer fun list (with a toddler!)

26 May 2017

It’s hard to believe, but this year’s summer fun list is even longer than last year’s! Every age with June has been sweet, but I’ve heard from many people that 15-24 months is an exceptionally fun stretch, and I believe it – we just can’t get enough of our girl!! I fully intend to check off every one of these things together before September 22, and I’m ridiculously excited about the thought.

Off to print and hang this list on our fridge! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, friends!

— dine under the lights at Vin Rouge
— take June to splash at Fews Ford
— decorate June’s bike and walk in our town’s Fourth of July parade
— spearhead a street potluck
— invite friends over for a cookout in our backyard
— take June to a splash pad
— make berry cobbler
— go to a Bulls game
— road trip to Maine
— roast s’mores in our fire pit
— jump off the wharf at the Island
— outdoor movie at Koka Booth or the Art Museum
— picnic at a Back Porch Music concert
— spend a day at the beach
— film our second June in June movie
— ice cream at Maple View
— road trip to Michigan
— pick blueberries
— have a classic cookout with hot dogs, grilled corn, pasta salad, potato salad, and more :)

Eeeks! I’m so excited for summer to unofficially kick-off this weekend, and I’m also unbelievably excited for our first married summer! I shared our summer checklist on my blog (, and we definitely have a few overlapping items to check off. If you find a new favorite farm to pick blueberries, send it my way! And I’m determind to make it to Brewery Bhavana in the next two weeks.

We started our summer off with a trip to Maine! My husband and son’s first trip, and my first time since middle school. Your beloved state is stunning!
