Spring Bucket List-- 2022

With the official first day of spring happening yesterday I knew today would be the perfect time to share my spring bucket list.  I try to make a bucket list each season of fun things we want to do before the season passes us by.  It's something I started when my boys were quite young and I used to get their input each season but as they get older they want less and less to do with that so I try to plan fun things that I think we'll all enjoy and add in a bunch of things I want to do either by myself or with my husband or friends. 



1. Get some potted plants going on the deck-- preferably basil and a few other easy to grow edible ones. 

2. Check to see if we have an old bike that Evan can fit on and start adding some bike rides in place of a few of our daily hikes. 

3. Get the patio furniture out and start eating outside more often.


4. Try a new salad recipe (either for lunch or dinner)

5. Go kayaking!


6. Get caught up on scrapbooking (up until Jan 1st of this year)

7. Make Easter cards for the family.

8. Enjoy a weekend getaway with my husband (we have on planned for early June in New Hampshire).


9. Put out all the spring d├ęcor: flowers for the front steps, garden decoration, and a wreath for the door.

10. Visit a museum 

11. Go to the beach-- we've always loved the beach in spring best.

12. Plan at least 2 day trips for Alec's April vacation

13. Celebrate Ian's 18th birthday!

14. Visit the botanical gardens



15.  Find a new state park to explore.

    1. Yeah we had that one 70 degree day (where my mother in law apparently went kayaking!) and then it's been back in the 50's. :(

  6. Such a great list for spring! I too have a botanical garden on my bucket list this spring. I put up some spring things around the house at the beginning of March. Maybe I need to make/redecorate a spring wreath though...The one I have now had fallen apart a bit.

    1. I still have out a Joy welcome mat that's leftover from Christmas so I need something to get motivated to get our front door looking more seasonal! LOL

    1. I just love New Hampshire-- I would move there if their winters weren't even worse than hours.

  8. You are right, the older the kids get the less they want to do with us. You have some great plans. I have already started on my planting and growing and have little shoots already coming through.

  10. This is a great list! I unfortunately do not have a botanical garden near me any more, but my mom and I have been thinking about making a trip to Atlanta to visit the one there!

  12. I am definitely impressed that you've been doing this since your boys were little! I can't even seem to make one! But, these should all be fun things to do!

    1. Yep, we began making bucket lists when we began homeschooling. It helped remind me to sprinkle in more arts, crafts, field trips, recipes, and science projects into our days.
