Summer 2013

It's Memorial Day. First of all, I have a deep respect and appreciation for our military members, and their families. Thank you all for what you do everyday for our country.

Memorial day is also the unofficial start to summer. Of course, the summer "officially" starts at 2:45 June 13th. I am taking a cue from my friend Erika and I created my own Pinterest inspired, fancy-pants looking summer bucket list.

Just like Erika said in her post, many summer bucket lists out there are focused on parents. I took some ideas from Erika's list, added in some things from my 13 in '13 list and some of our summer plans. After thinking about some other things that I always love in the summer I narrowed it down to 20 things I would love to do this summer.
Some highlights:

  • There are only like 2 drive-ins in Oregon, and we live about 15 minutes from one, yet I don't think we have ever gone together. 
  • There are tons of local breweries in Oregon, including one just about 6 miles away from my house: the Rogue Farm/hop yard which is probably one of my favorite places ever. 
  • My town also puts on weekly concerts in the park (usually for free) and hosts a ton of festivals. Festivals, as you all know, include some of the yummiest food on the planet. 
  • We already have one camping trip planned and we have plans to head down to San Francisco to visit my Aunt.
What's on your summer bucket list?

This is such a great list! I need to find a few local breweries near me, and I love making jam at home!

Good idea for a bucket list! I may have to steal this..

Nick REAALLLLYY wants to tour some of the breweries in Oregon. Especially Rogue and Deschutes. If we ever do it, I will have to make sure you know!

All of these look amazing. I might just come crash your house for the summer and do these with you... ;)

What a great list!!! We live in Portland so we definitely will be doing a lot of the same things it sounds like you will be doing this summer. :-)
