Summer actually starts on June 21st this year but we all know Memorial Day is the first official (non-official) day of summer. R found a pin listing fun ideas for summer activities, the list was geared more towards families with young kids but it initiated a conversation where we made our own summer goals. Anytime I post on the blog it keeps me accountable so here we go... family fun for Summer 2014.
*Make homemade ice cream...a new flavor that we've never made.
*Attend an outdoor concert.
*Make S'Mores after a cookout.
*Go to the community pool as much as possible.
*Go to the beach, obvs. We have all our favorite eateries, activities, and shops in Nags Head.
*Outdoor movie, we love the NC Museum of Art.
*A drive-in movie, we wanted to do this last summer and didn't have a chance to.
*Farmers Market Saturdays
*Make our own sushi...we've been meaning to do this for a long time.
*Antiquing. Lots and lots of antiquing.
*Thursday music in the park.
* Read at least one book each month and catch up on my magazines.
*Work on my fitness...outside.
*Try new summer salads and meals that require no heat. Unless that heat comes from a grill :-)
*Catch a baseball game, we have a decent local team.
*Try a new restaurant each month.
*Build a piece of furniture...or three. R has an ever growing list.
*See some fireworks.
*Attend an outdoor festival, our small town has one coming up in about a week.
*Take some much needed naps in our hammock.
*Grill pizza with a new topping combination.
*Check off some DIY projects.
