Summer Bucket List.

At the beginning of each year, my family would compile a "memory list" of all the fun things that we wanted to do as a family that year. The list was then posted on the side of the fridge where we could keep track of all the family memories we were making. With this tradition in mind and to help ensure that our summer was not totally wasted with sleeping in and studying for tests, Melinda, Ashlee and I made a Summer Bucket List.

Disclaimer: The following list is a work in progress and may be added to at any time if an adventure arises.
  • Hike Mount Timpanogos
  • Float the Provo River
  • Make a fort in our living room and sleep in it
  • Hike Y Mountain
  • Go to Heber and get a shake from Granny's
  • Scone party
  • Triple Tandem Bike date down the Provo River Trail
  • Manti Pageant
  • CD 15 Photo Shoot
  • Hike Mount Nebo
  • King Cone Competition
  • Pedicures
  • Homemade Pizza
  • Weekly Temple Trips
  • Lay in the middle of University Avenue (our plan is at 3:00 am when everyone else is sleeping)
  • Friendship Bracelets
  • Shooting
  • Provo Farmers Market
Some of the completed adventures include...

Organizing a ward trip down to Manti to see the Cottam family star in the Manti Pageant.

A CD 15 Photo Shoot with Melinda's frame. . . her newest addition to her wedding decor.

With three foot-tall ice cream cones from Maceys and a time limit of 60 minutes to finish, we set out on our greatest adventure yet. . . the first annual KING KONG competition! Ashlee and Melinda both thought that I would be no competition, but with the chocolate ice cream slowing them down and the help of my hollow leg, I managed to finish just minutes before Ashlee, with Melinda coming in shortly after. Needless to say, a killer stomachache followed our short-lived victory and we spent the remainder of the day either moaning on the couch or trying to walk off the stomachache and 6,000+ calories we had just consumed.
