Our Bucket List is always changing!
First of all our Bucket List is always changing. Because soon as we mark something off we add three more items. Sometimes we go for months without adding anything at all. Then all of the sudden we start talking about what we want to. The next thing we know there are 20 new things on our list.
You can tell by the items we are adding to the list these days that we now have an empty nester. Because we and are no longer adding Disney World, Holiday World, Disney on Ice, etc.. (don’t get me wrong, I am sure all of those will be right back on there in a couple of years when the 3 little guys (Mac, Maverick, and Graham-the 3 best grandsons in the world)) get a little older. Therefore we are now adding things like Bourbon Street with the girls, and October Festival in Germany with the Nolan’s.
We are also adding things here close to home that don’t always cost much. Like the 3-day canoe trip on the 11pt river. That is not something you can’t do very well with a 3-year-old. Not saying it can’t be done just that we would not have done it. Hike Natural Bridge, Jeeping through Pine Hills, have your own Bocce Tournament, or Olympic yard party. These are all things you can do and have fun together now. But most importantly they will all give you memories to live on when you can no longer be active.
Our Point for a Bucket List!
Our point is make the list! Because we would have never gone swimming with the manatees in Crystal River, FL if it hadn’t been on the list. It just isn’t something that you think of on a daily basis when you are planning your 1 or 2 week a year trip. Finally here is it our Bucket List. We want to hear some of your Bucket List items, we might add them to our Next Stop!
