At the start of every season, we create an outdoor fun list. Together, we dream up some things we’d like to do, write those ideas down and then try to make them happen. Of course, more than any other time of year, we also plan for lots of downtime to make room in our lives for enjoying summer’s simple pleasures.

Some of the ideas on our summer outdoor bucket list are simple, but others require more time – things like cherry picking or fishing. Which is why this year, we’re dedicating time each week during Camp Mommy to an item on our list.
