    We have a trip to LA planned for July to visit a cousin I haven’t seen in 27 years – that should be a blast! And of course I want to be able to reintroduce running to my life after my physical therapy is done in a couple of weeks. Maybe I should try a 5k, too!

    But the thing I want to get done that I’ve been putting off for several years is getting a blog up and running. I’m hoping to enlist the help of my computer engineering son to get that going.

      Oooh fun! We went to LA last summer and had such a good time! I love going to new cities.

      Good luck on your blog! I think you should try it.

    Thanks for making your response date my birthday!!!! That’s easy to remember. Spoiler alert: we’re in. 🙂

    My ideal summer bucket list includes: hiking, camping, winery visits, a day at a lake, maybe a tubing trip, and picking berries. I will aim to do ONE of those this summer (the berries) and will keep the rest in mind for the fall/next year! As usual I have a bit too much going on to actually do many of those items, and when I actually have a free weekend I’m reluctant to jam in a car trip of any duration.

    This summer I WILL be doing lots of biking, I’m going to Ashland in a couple of weeks, to Nashville for a family reunion in July, and a friend is hosting a summer camp event for her birthday, so don’t cry for me, I’m doing some fun stuff along with all the Cycle Oregon training I’ll be doing!

      Oooh good luck with Cycle Oregon!!! And thanks for the reminder on berry picking. I definitely want to do that too.

    The only real thing on my bucket list this summer is getting into our new house, but I can’t make that happen 🙂

      I hope you get in your new house soon! I’m sure the wait has been unbearable.

    Great list! I have to say something about how much it focuses on Bella, though! 😉

      Hahaha! She’s kind of taken over our lives…

    Great list! I don’t have many plans for Summer except doing lots of long walks with Bella at the weekend. Seeing your plan for the beach: added that too. The “human” beaches don’t allow dogs during Summer but we have a doggie beach just 30 minutes from home. Will go there this Summer when the weather is good.

    As for learning your Bella to swim: she doesn’t have to learn that, it’s their instinct that they swim when they are in the water. Bella knew exactly what to do the first time she was in the water.

      That’s good to know. I wasn’t really sure what to do…beyond getting in the water with Bella and trying to teach her. LOL

    we did a list too.
    alas ours (ok hers :-)) includes ME sleeping with her on the trampoline one night 🙂

      Now that sounds like fun!!

    This is a great idea! I tried to have things on my to-do list (fun things!) that weren’t wedding-related, too, just for my sanity! And these are all fun, active things, which will make you feel like you’re still involved, rather than holed-up somewhere doing wedding crafts!

    I need a summer bucket list, too, as I have no idea right now what I’d like to do before summer’s over! I need to think about this!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yes! I didn’t want to spend my whole summer doing wedding stuff!
