Semi-Slacker's Summer Bucket List

I stole this idea from Misty at Southern Belle Mama who stole it from Meg whose been doing it since 2008.

Sassy & I had a great time putting this together & I'm calling it a work in progress because I plan to add more things as we think of them.  (Bo & Baby Girl had some input too!)

I'm really hoping this will cut down on the "I'm bored" comments. I'm sure when it comes to the 8 year old drama queen that lives with me, that's just a pipe dream. But it's worth a try!

Seriously what is AG camp? I'm super nosy! I did love those dolls when I was little but the whole ordeal is getting out of control.

You have a great list and sounds like you'll have a great summer!

First, I want some details on AG camp!! Julie is my third daughter, and we need a camp--as long as I can tag along. Second, tell Bo that his bucket is "dry" and in the mail. I sent them priority USPS yesterday.

Love it! I am going to steal this idea for a post as well!

They also have summer movie times that is like $2 or $3 per kid and it comes with a drink and popcorn. I have seen it at the Galleria and also the AmStar.
You could also go to the Museum of Arts and Science, the downstairs has a great play area and seating for moms!
Check the libraries for reading times, too!!!

P.S. all of this is extremely cheap or free depending on the day! If you have any questions call me!
