Summer Bucket List Update.

Well, here we are in August. Summer has absolutely flown by! But, I've been pretty productive on the things I wanted to accomplish this summer!  As a refresher, here's my to-do list...
1. See an MLB game-- check check!  I've seen two!  The New York Mets at the Washington Nationals and the Boston Red Sox at the Baltimore Orioles.
2. Watch Fireworks-- We caught fireworks after the Kannapolis Intimidators game we went to on July 3rd.
3. Have a Pool Day-- I had a fabulous day at the pool with my mom the day after the Fourth of July.  Their neighbors were out of town and offered up use of their pool while they were gone.  It was perfection!
4.  See an MiLB game-- We saw multiple minor league baseball games!  The Kannapolis Intimidators, the Winston-Salem Dash (twice), and the Greensboro Grasshoppers
5.  Travel to a New Place-- I had never been to Baltimore before we went a few weeks ago.  It wasn't my favorite place in the world (other than Camden Yards), but it counts!
6.  Take pictures with my DSLR-- I took a zillion pictures during our trip a couple weeks ago and at the multiple baseball games we've been to.  It's still not a regular part of our adventures-- we forget to take it to A LOT of places, which gets frustrating.  I want it to be just another thing I carry with me.  I can tell such a huge difference in the camera pictures vs phone pictures (duh...), so I'm trying to get in the habit of taking more camera pics.
One of my fave DSLR pics from this summer!

So far, I think I've done pretty good!  And we've got some more plans up our sleeves through Labor Day weekend, so I'm hopeful I can get everything on my list checked off!  I loved having a list like this for the summer-- I'm definitely planning on a fall one too!


  1. I totally didn't realize you lived that close to Kannapolis!Totally jealous seeing as that's where Dale Sr is from! I'd love to go see one of their games just because of their name ;)

  2. I'd say you're doing darn good on your bucket list!! Go you! I love that last photo of Donny squishing the capital!

  3. A fall list SO FUN. Fall to me is new beginnings and I love it :).

  4. I'm with you on taking my DSLR places with me! I'm still trying to get up the courage to lug the thing around with me at Disney next month!

  5. You really have had a great summer!!
