Snarky Brides

We can do so many activities!

I'm curious, what are some of your favorite things to do in the summer? Things to see, places to go, etc. I told H I want to do a 'summer bucket list' this year and so far all I really have is:
Go to Crater Lake
Hike some trails (need to be more specific)
Water park
See a rodeo

What would you put on your summer bucket list?

Re: We can do so many activities!

  • Oh, float trip reminds me that I want to go backpacking!

    And for some reason, I hate wine. I guess I don't have a very sophisticated palate.

  • In August we are going to BC to visit some friends, then going to Montana to fish.
    We are buying a fishing boat so tons of fishing.
    The local rodeo
    Amusement park
    The zoo in the next city
    Probably getting a horse
    Sheep hunting
    Salmon fishing in June in Queen Charlotte islands
    LOTS of BBQs and get togethers

    [QUOTE]Sere, I hated wine until I was 25 or so.  H and his family are huge wine drinkers and got me interested in wine. 
    Posted by ILoveMilkDuds[/QUOTE]

    So you're saying it could happen? I just feel like it would be much more classy to love wine than to be a liquor drinker like I am ;)

    Considering I have about 3 weekends free from now until October, I can't really plan too many things.

    Definitely lots of BBQing and drinking on the patio (that I just set up last night)



    Taking the dog to the park/beach/dog pool.
    Camping with the dog (we reserved a weekend in July to do this)
    I would love to take H to Cedar Point, but I'm not sure if we'll fit that in this summer
    Lots of gardening
    Lots of street festivals

    Sere I almost cant stop laughing long enough to type this! Make cushions, you so funny ;)

    I have no sewing skills to speak of and if I had a machine I'd probably sew myself to something.

    I'll stick to making wreaths, and other no-sew crafts.

    [QUOTE]Brandi - Are you talking about Magic Springs? I actually haven't been in a LONG time, so who knows, it may have gotten better. They do usually have pretty decent concerts in the summertime. Plus I think it's pretty cheap so you wouldn't be out much if it did still suck. ETA: Just checked their website. It looks like they have a couple newer rides. Might be worth it?
    Posted by rachers1017[/QUOTE]

    Yep- that is what I meant.  I guess we might as well.  I mean, you can't have a bad time when you're rididing rides... right?

  • A trip to Disneyland. I think I remember you saying you and your H haven't been there.
  • DH and I are also going to Crater Lake this summer, and to Lake Shasta in NoCal.  I'm super excited!  I can't wait to get out and do some hiking and camping this summer, as well as do my first Warrior dash.

    DH and I are also going to try our hand at making wine this summer.  We got all the stuff to do it last summer, but then we got engaged and most of my efforts went towards the wedding, so we decided to wait until now.
