Spring Bucket List

Easter is behind us and with weekends feeling like they are going by in the blink of an eye, I thought it would be fun to make a list of some of the fun things we want to get into over the next couple of months.  Not included but definitely at the top of our list, counting down to SUMMER!  After we put our Easter stuff away the other day Waverly asked what holiday was next and then said, “oh I know, summer!”  Yep.

1.  Picnic in the park.  Which will probably be Avalon’s most preferred activity, most nights when we have dinner we ask everyone what their favorite part of the day was and EVERY SINGLE TIME, Avalon says “the biiiig slide”.  Whether we went on a slide that day or not.

2.  Family Bike Ride.  We have a bike trailer (similar) that fits both girls and they love it so much, it is big enough to fit a cooler and snacks, blankets, or fishing rods for the lake near our house.

3.  Organize the Outdoor Toys for the Backyard.  We have super exciting plans for this weekend, to completely overhaul all our random outdoor toys to get better use out of them!  I feel like we have random bubbles, chalk, balls … everywhere.

4.  Aquarium Day.  We recently got a yearly membership to the aquarium, it has a beautiful outdoor trail which I’m really excited to get some use out of.

5.  Baseball Game.  We haven’t been to a baseball game yet with Avalon, I know she (and Waverly) will be in it all for the snacks.

6.  Beauty & The Beast.  We haven’t been to see this yet so it’s definitely on our list to do over the next couple of weeks.  Waverly LOVES the movies so much and it’s become a really fun thing for just her & I to do together.  We did recently see Boss Baby, and it was super cute!

7.  Farmers Market for Flowers, Fruit & Veggies.  Always such a fun trip, this is such a fun time to year to do it!

8.  Playhouse Plans.  Both our girls have summer birthdays and we are planning to get them a big joint present this year, a new playhouse that can really grow with them!!  We have been going back & forth with how to do it, whether to buy a new one, buy a used one off Craig’s List and make it our own, or for my husband to just build the entire thing.  I have been pinning some lately and there are SO many cute ones out there!  Hope to share some progress soon!

Also sharing some pictures from some of my spring break and other recent fun (including a few Easter activities), getting outside after a long winter has been the BEST!!!!!

Wishing you & yours a very happy weekend!!!

    We have a pass to our aquarium and go nearly once a week, especially if the weather has been raining! And Finn is obsessed with baseball all of sudden, so I'm sure your girls will love that too! Goodness, just so many fun spring things ahead!

Spring Bucket List

I know we’re already a few weeks into spring, but I thought it would be fun to share some of the things we have planned to get into over the next couple of months!  Being outside is our favorite & nothing makes me happier than the weather warming up after hibernating inside (or at Target) for what feels like forever.  I’m extra excited this year since I’m not in my third trimester of pregnancy, so I’m a little more mobile, and Avalon is old enough to actually enjoy most of what we do!
1.  Bike Ride.  We bought a bike trailer a few years back when Waverly was little, it fits two and I’m so excited to put both girls in it for some family bike rides!
2.  The Zoo.  One of our favorite activities, we are really looking forward to be able to do this again!  They also have a splash pad when it really warms up.
3.  Homemade Popsicles.  Love this round-up of two ingredient recipes, I know both girls would absolutely love them and I feel like if it’s only two ingredients, it’s realistic that I will do it.  And how cute are these molds?!
4.  Picnic at the Park.  We did this the other night on our back porch and then the following day for lunch, it was such a refreshing change.  Would love to try it at park in our neighborhood as well!
5.  Sidewalk Chalk & Painting Party Outside.  I’ll be the first to admit that our afternoons of painting were few & far between over the winter, it’s just so.much.MESS that the thought of it is sometimes too much.  But outside?!  YES! πŸ™‚  Hope the neighbors don’t mind the sight of two naked girlies outside painting soon.
6.  DIY Projects.  We have quite a few house projects we want to attempt, painting our fence and cleaning out the backyard are two of them.  And an inside project, my husband drove to Ikea last week to get the hemnes coffee table (since we love our dresser so much) and I’m so excited to hack it.
7.  Botanical Gardens.  Can’t wait to do this!!!
8.  Wash our Cars.  We’ve never done this with Waverly & I feel like she would be all about it.
9.  Adventuring.  We’ve already been doing some of this lately, just spending time outside!  Our backyard is great for this, one of my favorite parts of our house.

10.  Beach Trips.  This is one of my favorite times of year to go to the beach, since it’s not quite that busy yet or too hot to really enjoy it.  The girls & I have ventured there just to explore lately and it is so, so much fun, the perfect activity to just let them be free and tire them out for bedtime.

And a couple photos from yesterday, we pulled out our spring dresses for the sunshine and oh, how happy it makes me!  As do they.

What are some of your favorite activities for spring?!  And wishing you all the happiest weekend with WARM weather.  XO

    I love Spring and all of the fun outdoor activities to do!! Looks like a great list!

    Your list is so dreamy!! I think we're gonna have to come hangout with you now that we are nearing triple digits (it was 98 yesterday, YUCK!) and it will soon be too hot to do anything outside πŸ™ And oh how I WISH we lived near water! Beach trips sound amazing!!

    We just introduced P to the world of art (coloring & chalk – not brave enough for paint yet!)and it has been so much fun!

  5. April 22, 2016 / 9:00 pm

    Such a great list!!
    Beach trips are on our list, too! We didn't spend near enough time there last summer, and I fully intend to make up for that this year!

    Love your list! Your little ladies will have so much fun. Im wanting to make popsicles this season too and saw the cutest diamond ring mold at Target! Any excuse to go to Target haha.

    We love drawing with chalk! And Noah is a huge fan of washing the car! Loving your tulip photo!

    Love your list! I can’t wait to follow along as you check these items off your list. Love the homemade popsicles idea. Mason would have so much fun with that. Yes to all the adventuring!!!
