Our 2017 Family Bucket List – Update

This year we created a family wish jar. As it’s already half way through the year, how I don’t know. I thought we should check and see how we are doing. 

Our 2017 Family Bucket List

  • Go to Lego Land
  • Pick our own strawberries at a PYO fruit farm
  • Go on a bike ride all together – somehwere like Grapham water (I need to get a bike still!)
  • Bake brownies
  • Have a family holiday abroad  We went to Spain in the half term and had a lovely time
  • Go on a camping/glamping trip
  • Toast marshmallows – the boys have both done this with cubs and beavers but we haven’t done it all together so I’m not crossing it off yet. 
  • Watch a sunrise and a sunset together – We’ve done a sunset on holiday but not a sunrise yet.
  • Visit Centre Parcs
  • Have a night away with no kids  Check out our trip to Nice with a proposal
  • Visit a new place
  • Go sledging (if we don’t have snow, go sledging at Xscape)

  • Look at the stars in the night sky and spot the constellations, maybe even a shooting star
  • Have a water fight in the garden  We had so much fun doing this during the heatwave

    What a lovely bucket list full of really fun things to do, we live close to Legoland and are lucky enough to go regularly and we visited the Science Museum in February half term. It was super busy but the children enjoyed it. Sledging sounds awesome, I may have to steal that one!
