40 + Summer Ideas

School is almost out for us and we are putting together our planned bucket list and summer ideas to make the most of this time off! My husband and I get extended time off from work and we are so excited to spend the days with our kiddos!

Transition for all of us will happen, but we have found that to have a plan helps all of us. Whether you have children, no children or are single, Summer can be a new season to do new things! Make the most of your Summer season!

Here are some ideas for everyone as well as a peak at our own family bucket list for local things in and near Austin, TX. I hope this helps you enjoy the next few summer months and spur on your own ideas for fun!
