Summer Bucket List

I have a really idealistic view of summer. I always have, even since I was a little kid. I grew up in a beautiful valley, where we spent the majority of our summer days outside. We swam at Elkhead lake, floated the Yampa River in inner-tubes and went on over-night float trips.  The entire valley smelled like lilacs in the spring and I will never forget the smell of Hayden summer nights.

Because of that, I always have these crazy ideas and I have so many activities that I want to fit into a very small amount of time. I suppose this summer is no different. Here is my 2014 Summer Bucket List:

1. Float the Yampa River


2. Go fishing at least 5 times

My dad might be best fisherman in the world

3. Go to the Colorado Renaissance Festival 


4. Swim (or at the very least wade) in the ocean

5. See just as many sunrises as sunsets

6. Run at least three days a week


7. Finish cleaning out our two-car garage

We've only lived in our house for just under a year. Maybe it's time we finish unpacking? 

8. Run through the sprinklers in my backyard

9. Have a backyard movie night

Our movie night set-up at the old house

10. See a concert at Red Rocks


Red Rocks amphitheater is probably my favorite music venue in Colorado and I've only ever seen two shows there (Counting Crows & The Avett Brothers). I would like to change that this summer.

11. Read at least 10 books

12. Hang out with friends and family

The school year is just so busy for us, that by the time summer rolls around, we are ready to chill with our friends and family. I hope we get a lot of BBQ/backyard time with people in the next few months!

What's on your summer bucket list? Do we have any other these in common?
