Last Summer I told myself I would be intentional and create a Summer Bucket List (go grab your free Summer Bucket List Printable) for our family. All too often at the end of the Summer I look back and wish that we had made more memories together as a family.

Memories aren't always about going to places or spending lots of money.

Yes, my kids talk all the time about Walt Disney World, the Zoo, and our trips to the beach.

But they also remember bike rides, water painting, roasting marshmallows, reading books together, picking strawberries, and making strawberry shortcakes. Free and cheap Summer activities are sometimes the ones that children remember most.

This Summer, let's be intentional and make this Summer one to remember.
