Every time summer gets here, we can’t wait to get our bucket list made that will include all our best adventures for the summer, trying out new things, and living life carefree. With less than 30 days left of summer for most of us, now is the perfect time to fit in any last minute items you have wanted to do! Summer ’17 has been all about time spent with family and friends, preparing ourselves for the upcoming school year, and doing things we never thought possible last summer. All in all, it has been one for the books! Time to go out with a bang!
Here are a few last minute bucket list items you can add to your already impressive list-
Enjoy live music at your county or state fair
Cook everything on a grill & invite your friends over for a fun night
Take a nap in a hammock
Watch/catch the fireflies at dusk
Take a family (or friends) photo just because
Do a three-day technology detox (that means no social media!)

Fly a kite
Clean out your closet and declutter around the house
Take a trip to the zoo or aquarium
Attend a baseball game & splurge on the good seats
