Our Summer Vacation Bucket List

If you're a fan of Phineas and Ferb, then you already know that there are 104 days of summer vacation...

A couple weeks ago I saw a list of 100 frugal things to do this summer and it got me to thinking about what I wanted to do this summer with my children, and as a family.  Since my husband works all summer, I need to keep the kids active and entertained while we are on summer vacation.

We are going to the Oregon Coast for a week this July and have already rented a great beach house right on the sand.  The beach is literally right out the sliding class door and a few steps from the deck.  This is the week we are looking forward to most this summer - I can hardly wait!

Here is our Summer Fun Bucket List

  1. Amusement Park - Silverwood Theme Park (we have season passes)
  2. Color Me Rad 5K (already signed up)
  3. Go Boating
  4. Go Camping
  5. Attend an Outdoor Concert
  6. Watch 4th of July Fireworks
  7.  Montana Bison Range
  8. Spokane Indians Baseball Game
  9. Go Swimming
10. Waterpark - Silverwood Theme Park
11. Bike Riding
12. Jump on the Trampoline
13. Go to a Zoo
14. Go to the Aquarium
15. Deep Sea Fishing (while on vacation)
16. Have a Bonfire
17. Go to a Parade
18. Regal Cinemas Dollar Movies
19. Lemonade Stand
20. Make Homemade Ice Cream

23. Horseback Riding (possibly on the beach)
24. Ride 4 wheelers
25. Have a Water Fight
26. Build a Sand Castle
27. Play Mini Golf
28. Explore the Tide Pools
29. Have a Sleepover
30. Car Races - Stateline Speedway
31. Go Bowling (Free Summer Bowling)
32. Plant Flowers

Horseback riding would be so much fun! Are you guys going to do that on the coast?

@Hanan - I have ALWAYS wanted to go horseback riding on the beach... I think this year is going to be the year while we are on vacation. Think it will be a "Girls afternoon!"

You'll have fun at the Color Me Rad race! I did the Color Run here in San Diego and it was a blast!
