Summer Bucket List

Well, the unofficial - official - start of of summer kicks off tomorrow with Memorial Day Weekend...The forcast for Minnesota looks FANTASTIC and we are thrilled to have family coming to town to celebrate with us...
This weekend, much like Minnesota Summers, FLIES BY much much much too quickly for me. Given the loooonnnngggg Minnesota winters - I have a LOT I want to do when it's nice outside. In addition to the usual stuff: bike rides, gardening, grilling out, bonfires, rest & relaxation, etc...
I have a laundry list of things I want to do with the kids in the coming months while we have this great weather...

A Minnesota Summer Bucket List if you will...

(And when my hubs reads this - he'll probably fall off of his chair - Just last week he reminded me that if it were up to me, we'd never be home...Well, it's not like I'm planning another big trip to Disney...YET.....................)

So...What am I missing from the Minnesota-area list? What are YOUR favorite things to do in the summer?
Leave me a comment and let me know what you look forward to doing most in summer-help me find more hidden gems!
