2019 Family Bucket List

Are you looking for ideas to add to your summer family bucket list this year? Today on the blog, I’m sharing 15 activities to add to your list- fun for the whole family! Let’s get you off of the couch and enjoying all the things summer has to offer!

Mommin’ Ain’t Easy

“Mom” is one of THE sweetest titles I have ever had the privilege of wearing, but I would be lying if I told you it’s always filled with rainbow and unicorns.

If I’m being honest, sometimes it’s freaking HARD to find “the balance”. Perhaps this is because “the balance” I’m referring to here just does not exist. You can read more about my thoughts on that here.

Making Moments Count

I don’t know about you, but I do NOT want to be remembered as the mom who was too busy to play with her kiddos. When they look back on their childhood, I want them to remember the mom that did her best with a smile on her face…the mom who strived to be present in every moment, to the best of her ability. Will every moment be like this? Unfortunately, no. But I can certainly do better about being more intentional with the time I have with my little monsters (oops, I mean angels!) every day. That being said, I created a family summer bucket list for the kiddos and me to take on!

The Bakken Family Summer Bucket List

With the end of the school year right around the corner, I decided to get started on the ultimate family summer bucket list for this year!

I’m sharing it with you today on the blog in case you also have a bucket list and have not considered any of the things I’ve listed below. I also want to hear what’s on your bucket list that is not on mine!

Let the shenanigans begin!!
