Summer Bucket List

Hello! I’m linking up with Jenny from The Chronicles of We, Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup and several other bloggers for their fun summer bucket list link-up!

Since it’s summer, we’ve been spending lots of time at our local parks.  There are several parks within 20 minutes of our home and we like to explore all of them.  This particular park is lots of fun and the way it is set up, it makes it easy for me to watch Will when he explores on the bigger park set while Harper runs around the smaller play set.

This girl is very cautious about going down slides.  She refuses to go down any slide at the park but will go down the slide on our neighbor’s play set. Harper just likes to climb up and down the steps and swing.  She would swing all day if I let her, ha!


Mr. Adventurer!






For comparison (since I love taking pictures of Will and Harper doing similar activities each year to see how much they’ve grown and changed!):

Summer 2014




Summer 2013-look how much smaller they both look!


Swinging! I think Will’s a little too big for this swing!


“Come on, Harper, let’s go see the ducks”


At the park, there’s a fun bridge that we like to go on. There’s a great view of the river and of the ducks.  Harper was actually very resistant about going across the bridge. She kept looking down and was scared that you could see straight down to the water.



“Up, Mommy”


The view from the bridge…

Now it’s time to explore more parks this summer!

  1. I really love the comparison activity photo – that’s such a great idea I need to remember! That bridge looks like a great park feature. Our park has ducks but they never seem to be there when we go but every time Callie now insists we go look for ducks first! Thanks for linking up with us again! 🙂
