Summer Bucket List

To give a little context, I live in the lovely state of Minnesota. I live here because for 3 months Minnesota is one of the most glorious places in the world (National Geographic agrees). The other 9 months have me holed up, in front of the fireplace, dreaming of a warm breeze. So as I looked over my calendar for this month, I was surprised that I have completely booked the month of June with meeting after meeting in windowless conference rooms. If this doesn't stop soon, it will be Fall and I'll still be the color of printer paper. The solution is the summer bucket list. Thinking about all of the specific things that I want to do, will encourage me to actual schedule it and do it. I'd also like to hear your summer bucket list ideas in the comments.

1. Go to a drive-in movie

2. Strawberry picking at the end of June  We went to a farm by our house, it was one of those experiences where I will look back at the pictures and say "wow, we had such a great time". The actual experience was filled with complaining children and the smell of manure. On the positive side, the stawberries were delicious and my kids could see that food actual grows somewhere.

3. Concert at Lake Harriet Bandshell

4. Comedy at the Park

5. Kayaking at Lake of the Isles and lunch at Tin Fish Restaurant

6. Twins Game (so what if I hate sports, I want to see the new stadium)

7. Uptown Art Fair- August 5-7

8. Izzy's Ice Cream I was probably eating the ice cream before the post was complete. MMMM Izzy's.

9. Minnesota State Fair

10. Wine tasting at Chateau St. Croix Vineyard This was so much fun, if you are in the Twin Cities look for their deals on Groupon and Crowdcut.

11. Visit Northern Minnesota, including a ride on the Alpine Rollercoaster at Spirit Mountain My hubby and I took a short vacation to Duluth and had a great time! I convinced him to go on the Alpine Rollercoaster and it was fabulous. Beautiful view the whole way down.

12. Visit Taylor's Falls
