I am equal parts terrified and excited that we have 13 days of school left until summer. Sleeping in, no schedule, and no homework sounds perfect. Kids fighting, not so much. So for our sixth year in a row, the Wilson Summer Bucket List will be taken out of the hall closet. You can read about our previous years here and here. Last year we were lucky enough to take our first family vacation to Austin, TX. This year we will be having a staycation. But since we live in awesome California, we have plenty of places to visit, stuff to do, and food to eat. Below is a list for the summer, where we always leave room for the unexpected:
Knotts Berry Farm-our budget Disneyland. We don’t have Mickey or Minnie but we have Charlie Brown, and isn’t he cuter anyways? I wrote a long time ago about why we love Knott’s so much.
Waterpark-we have one less than 10 minutes from our house and Knott’s has its own Soak City right across the street from the park.
Beach-I mentioned awesome California, right?
Ice Cream for Dinner-Scarlet has already asked if we can do this more than once.
80s Movie Education-Last summer we did The Last Starfighter. At Christmas we watched Gremlins. On the schedule this year: WarGames and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Museum-We love The Broad and LACMA.
Rollerskating-The kids skate for free and they each have their own skates. Enough said.
Read, Read, Read
Hiking-no Joshua Tree during the summer but here is a list of places that we are considering.
Universal Studios-Harry Potter Wizarding World for us Potterheads.
OC Fair-$12 beers, corn on the cob, 80s bands trying to make a comeback, and an ocean breeze.
Angels Game-my little ball player is excited for his first professional baseball game.
Impeachment March-Fingers crossed we won’t have to do this because the impeachment will have ALREADY HAPPENED.
What do you have planned for this summer?
