Summer to do list

28 June 2013

I missed the official first day of summer by a few days, but it feels like my summer will really begin tomorrow, when John and I leave for our big road trip to Michigan! Here are a few other things I’m hoping to “accomplish” this season…

summertime wave splashing

— Host an adventure dinner party (!!!)
— Bake something with fresh berries or fruit
— Order from a local food truck (I’m eying this one)
— Swim in the Eno
— Go to an outdoor country concert
— Watch an outdoor movie at Koka Booth and the NC Museum of Art
— Spend a day at the beach
— Watch fireworks
— Pick blueberries
— Canoe down the Haw River
— Stargaze during the Perseids meteor shower
— Buy a grill
— Make flavored lemonade
Jump off the dock at the Island
— Eat lots of bruschetta :)

What’s on your list? I’m always inspired by what y’all have planned!

Oh I would love to see an outdoor movie!! I’m hoping after I settle in DC next month I’ll be able to find an awesome venue for just that.

Safe travels this weekend, Em!

Guess we won’t be seeing you in Maine? We leave tomorrow. If it is hot enough, I will jump off the dock :-)

Love this list! I totally need to put one together.

Just as a note, it’s the Haw River (not the Saxapahaw). We just moved into a house that overlooks the river, so canoeing/kayaking on it is definitely on my list, too!

The lemonade post is on my bookmarks to do this summer too! Only, I’m going to try to do a lower-sugar version of each! We’ll see what happens!

Another on my list is learning to SUP! Looks like so much fun!
