5 on Friday: Summer Bucket List

*Thanks to everyone who entered my 5 Year Blogoversary Giveaway yesterday! Check here to find out the winner.*

Today, I'm combining 2 link-ups in 1! 


I had actually been wanting to do a summer bucket list post, so this came at a great time!

1.) This is probably what I'm looking forward to the most this summer... our trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We leave on Saturday, August 3rd and come back on Saturday, August 10th. It will be our first vacation with Jackson! I can't wait to spend a whole week on the beach. We are taking my parents along for the ride as well. They haven't been on a vacation in years and we thought it might be nice for them to get away and to help us out with Jackson. We have a rental condo on the beach reserved and have a few things planned to do while we're there. It should be a great time!

2.) Our 6 Year Anniversary is July 14th. Last year we planned our vacation around our anniversary since we were celebrating 5 years. This year we'll probably keep it more low-key and may just stay a night or 2 somewhere close-by. We're still deciding on what we want to do. ☺

3.) Going to White Birch Water park with Jackson. White Birch is a little water park, just right down the street from us. We went a couple of times last year and Jackson was still a little bit small, but loved it there. I think he will have even more fun this year! I can't wait to take him back.

4.) Taking Jackson Strawberry picking at Eckerts. I've never been strawberry picking before, but I'm really wanting to go this summer. 

5.) Going to see a couple shows at the Muny... particularly Mary Poppins! I just love going to the Muny. Its one of my favorite summer things to do in St. Louis.

What are you looking forward to this summer??

That little splash park looks amazing! I wish we had something like that in our area.

Have fun on your beach vacation. we did it last AUgust, but I think it would have been way more fun to do now since Taylor is older.

That water park looks perfect for little ones!
Your trip to AL looks like it's going to be amazing. Can't wait to hear all about it when you return.
