My Summer Bucket List

Hey guys,

I found this really cool idea on Pinterest and decided to participate. The link from this pin has a great list to start and you can add your own ideas as well. You can also google summer bucket lists, apparently this is a popular idea. I decided to make a big list and whatever I don't finish this summer, will just go towards next summer. (If this works out I might even do this each season, sounds like it would be a great way to make memories.)
