I made a list of summer goals, but when I looked at what I had written down, I realized it was all things I wanted to get done, but nothing was just for fun. Of course, another list had to be made. I made a quick list and then asked Tony what he wanted to add and it was done! Not too much thinking, just easy, fun stuff. Here are the details:
Go to Xi'an: We actually went to Xi'an this past weekend! (I promise we made the list before we went ;) I'll hopefully have a post up about our trip sometime soon, but you can check what I posted on Instagram here.
Eat ice cream at Dari Delite: Yup, has to be spelled that way. You can read about my fave childhood ice cream spot at the bottom of this post.
Visit Nemy & Tiff & baby Una: Tony's best friend (who was his best man at our wedding) and his wife just had a baby! Luckily they'll be in Canada the same time we are so we're hoping we'll get to see them!
Eat lobster: I've loved lobster since my first visit to PEI just a few years ago, and Tony fell in love with it on his first trip to Canada. He asked that this be added to our summer fun list and who am I to say no?
Celebrate our first anniversary: I can't believe we've almost been married a year! It's flown by! So excited to celebrate with T!
Drink Tim Hortons: Of course.
Eat a donut: This was one of Tony's and I was surprised! But hey, I can eat a donut!
Go to the Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market: A Fredericton must. We're supposed to land in Fredericton on a Friday night and you better believe that we'll be at the market the next day.
Eat a bbq'd hot dog: A summer must. Nostalgia in food form.
Drink local beer: Pump House Blueberry Ale, Picaroons Melon Head, Moosehead Radler. I'm comin' for ya.
Walk across the World's Longest Covered Bridge: Simple but fun.
Go to Paint the Heartland: I've been attending this art festival for years, and I've even worked at it! It's a favourite event every summer and luckily I'll be home just in time for it this summer.
Drive on a country road with the windows down & the music turned up loud: Because the feeling it gives me is this.
Read at least 5 books: I've already read 2 since school ended, not including the two I had begun while school was still in session. Maybe I should increase this goal. See my book reports here.
Visit the library: Did you know I worked at a library for three summers while I was in university? I was the Summer Reading Club coordinator and I've loved libraries ever since.
Play miniature golf: Tony's never played and I think he'd love it because he's competitive haha. (I'm looking forward to kicking his butt ;)
Hug my family: A given, but one I'm really looking forward to.
What are you doing this summer for fun?
