A big thank you to my good friend Natalie who gave us this idea a few years ago and Honey & Ginger for helping me look like Martha Stewart with this Bucket List idea! We’ve had fun coming up with lots of fun activities for this summer and we’ve already managed to cross a few on our list! Some of the things on this bucket list are:
WHALE WATCHING – Check
CAMPING – Check
WATERSLIDES – Check
BIKE AROUND STANLEY PARK
The list goes on….
Last week, we started off with “dirty camping”. We normally drive far far away to Wenatchee to nice grass campsites, but this year our group of 50 of our closest friends went to Birch Bay, which was much closer, but a little dirtier. My kids were a dark shade of brown when our time was over. It felt good to have a shower after! Our family is SO blessed to have a great group of friends that have kids at similar ages. We have an absolute blast! We also realized that the US has a much lower standard of safety when it comes to fireworks! Some of the dads put on a spectacular fireworks show, but I was pretty sure one of us were going to blow up!
After camping, it was so refreshing to spend a night in a hotel and wake up to go on a whale watching adventure! It was pretty windy and choppy, but we had the BEST time!! We saw about 20 killer whales all together, including the famous “Granny” who is 103 years old and a few babies too. They definitely put on a great show for us!
I’m ready to go again!!!
What’s on your 2015 Bucket List?
