The Last Summer Bucket List

June 5, 2012

While I would like to say that I’m not going to let having a baby hold me back from doing the things I want to do in life, I know that may not be entirely possible. Life is going to be different with a little one to care for, but I know that doesn’t mean my life is over. It’s just going to change. A lot.

That being said, I want to pack as much fun into my ‘last summer’ as possible. I don’t want to look back on this summer and think of it as a complete bore that I wasted away doing nothing. I want to get out and see and do as much as possible!

I have 16 weekends until my due date which in the grand scheme of things, isn’t many. Especially considering I have a number of them already filled up with a trip, races, my cousin’s wedding and my own baby shower!

But somewhere in the mix, these are the things I hope to fit in before the end of summer:

– Drive in Movie
– River floating (at least once!)
– Go carts (I’m pretty sure I can do this pregnant, right?)
Mini Golf   completed July 14
– Corn Maze
– Westerner Days
Calgary Stampede (Awolnation is playing the Coke Stage!) completed July 8
– Banff hike with possible stop at the Grizzly House for fondue dinner!
– Backyard fire with wiener roast & s’mores

That’s all I’ve come up with so far. I’m hoping that I can fit some, if not all, of those things into my summer. I want to be able to look back and smile at the memories I made and hopefully have lots of fun stories to share with you guys!

Do you have any must see/do things for summer? Anything I should check out before my little bun arrives?

    Thats so cool about AWOLNATION, I totally didn’t know that! The grizzly house is so good, but be careful being p/g that you cook everything properly 🙂 We went a few years ago and one girl had the shrimp and got food poisoning…whoops!

    Do you not need a backyard in order to do a “Backyard fire with wiener roast & s’mores”?
