Spring Mini Bucket List!

My family will be the first to admit it: We’re dorks. We like doing things that some people might deem ‘weird’ or ‘unorthodox.’  But we’re fun.  At least, that’s what we tell ourselves.  So every season, we all make a list of things we want to go before that season is over.  I used to do this with my mom and sister when we were kids and now I do it with my own family.  I actually look forward to doing this because it’s fun to work towards goals and try to get the list completed.  It can be as long or as short as you want.  It can also be as detailed or as vague as it takes.  It’s all up to you!  That’s the beauty of it!

Spring is finally in full force so it’s time to make the Lane Family’s Spring 2014 List.  I usually type it up and then save it so I can look back on it and get ideas or remember the fun stuff we did!  I try to make the list as free or low cost as possible too.  That adds to the fun.  Plus, if something turns out to be horrible, it will make a great story.  Here is the beginning of our list.  Remember, you have three months and then you make a summer list!  Get moving!

It will be the kind of busy that’s fun and worthwhile.  If you think about it, isn’t EVERYTHING in life worth celebrating?  It is to me!  I want to enjoy it!  How about you?  What are some things on your spring list?
