The kids and I decided we needed to create a good summer bucket list. Since this is our second of (hopefully) three summers in Colorado Springs, we also wanted to be sure we included some local attractions. We are hoping for one more summer here, but there are no guarantees right now.
Either way, we made two lists--one of specific places to go and see in the area and one of activities we want to do. The activities are more generic and easier to do whenever, whereas most of our specific places to go need Daddy home to join us.
I'll be editing this all summer, crossing off the ones we've done, adding new ones if they come up, and sharing the links to ones that are complete.
