Summer Bucket List | BBQ with Friends & Wet N Wild

We are having a great time this summer, even with Diego being in year-round school.  Tomorrow is his last day in 3rd grade and he'll have his 3 week summer track break before starting 4th grade.  We plan to pack a lot of summer fun in the next 3 weeks :) 

Here's a quick update with 2 more things we got to check off the Happy Family Movement's Summer Bucket List, BBQ with friends and going to Wet N Wild.  

We were invited over a friend's place for a BBQ earlier this month and the kids had a great time playing with the other kids and swimming in the pool.  It really was a nice relaxing day with friends.  It was exactly what we needed! 

This Saturday we finally went to Wet N Wild.  I say "finally" because this is the 2nd season it's been open and we literally saw it being built.  The water park is about 4 miles down the road from our house and we drive down that road every day to & from the gym.  When it opened last summer, we heard stories of how it was so packed, so we decided to hold off.  Our kids had been patiently waiting all year, so when it was time to put our summer bucket list together, Wet N Wild was maybe the first thing they suggested.  Huge thanks to our friends, Ernie & Veronica and my nephew, Jared and his friend Mikey for getting us in with a buddy pass and saving us quite a bit of money!!  

We spent about 6 hours at the park and had a blast!  It was not crowded and the lines were not crazy long.  The kids got on most of the slides, played in the wave pool, and relaxed in the lazy river.  It was perfect!  I think they must have said, "thanks for bringing us here" about a hundred times!  We'll definitely be getting season tickets next year.  

Did you and your family do a Summer Bucket List?  What kinds of fun things are you doing this summer?  I'd love to hear them!
