Summer is almost here and that means hot weather, no school and lots of family fun.

A family summertime bucket list is a must!

It’s a great way to keep track of what you should do this summer.

I always feel like there is so much fun to be had and I love creating a list.

In this crazy time in the world you may not be able to do everything you want. Your special vacation spot may be closed.
