Summer to do list

Well, school is out and my daughter is on Summer Vacation!! YEAH!!!  We can't really do any formal vacations this summer since my husband has started a new job and can't really ask for time off.  So, my daughter and I decided to write a list of things we want to do this summer.

We were inspired by a post done by Holiday Haven.  She always has wonderful ideas and she is a daily read for me! She did a post with a list of small activities that families can do (HERE) and it inspired us to write our own list.

Here are the fun activities that my daughter and I are going to do this summer (hopefully, we will check them all off by the time she starts 1st grade.)

  • Go to the beach
  • Go to the rainforest

  • Go to the zoo
  • Go to Paradise (on Mt. Rainier)
  • Go to Snoqualmie Falls
  • Camp in the back yard

  • Go to Friday Harbor
  • Take a hike
  • Go to Seattle Center

  • Go berry picking
  • Go to Mt St. Helens

  • Go real camping
  • Ride Bike on Ruston Way
  • Take the train (anywhere)

  • Ride the Seattle Ducks
  • Fly a kite
  • Go to the top of the Space Needle

  • Go to NW Trek
  • Go see a lighthouse

  • Go to an amusement park

  • Go to Chuck e Cheeses
I am sure we will add more items on our list as the summer progresses, but these were the initial things she wanted to do and I think it sounds like an awesome summer!!!


  1. How fun! I think I just might need to borrow your idea and come up with a list of my own.

    Have a fun summer.

  2. What a lovely, inspiring list! I love that it includes challenging things like 'go real camping' and fun things like 'go to Chuck-E-Cheese' (my favorite!)

  3. sounds great! that would be one amazing summer :)

  5. Looks like you have a great summer ahead of you! Keep us posted on each one so I can live vicariously through you!

  6. What a lovely list- lots to look forward to this summer!

  7. I've been to Friday Harbor, it is so lovely!! It's very fun for the 4th of July (that's when I was there) =)

  8. The train picture is totally my FAV! I want to hang it in my house.
    I love making summer to do lists. When my husband and I were engaged we had the most fun list of things and this is inspiring me to do it again.

  9. Thanks so much for linking to me, so glad you were inspired by it!! If you are not taking a car to Friday Harbor you might want to check out Suzie's moped shop. They have cute little scooter cars you can take around the island (even with kids in them).

    Love all of your ideas! Will have to put a link back to this post in the comments of that post. :)

  10. What a fabulous list & such a great idea. Hope u get to do all of them! :)

  11. I just left you a present on my page
