summer bucket list!

summer bucket list | 10 things to do in Detroit with your kids this summer on

You guys, tomorrow is the first day of summer! I already have a little anxiety about how quickly the summer will go by – I’m not ready for fall – changing leaves, cider mills, boots. Slow down, summer! Ok, perhaps a bit of an overreaction. Bring it on, summer!

I wanted to share a list of a few things I’d like to do this summer. What else should I add? I’d love your input!

  1. See a movie at Booth Park
  2. Eat a waffle sandwich from the Custard Hut
  3. Have a picnic at Belle Isle
  4. Wear these sandals everywhere
  5. Finally see the Pictured Rocks in person
  6. Swim in our inflatable pool {it has cup holders!}
  7. Make rosé ice cubes
  8. Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale {duh}
  9. Create the perfect summer playlist, we’ve been asking Google Home to play Matt Nathanson lately
  10. Camp under the stars in our backyard

    Golden Cone in RO has THE BEST frozen custard. Ignore the huge colorful ice cream selection in the cooler. Make sure to get the soft serve custard directly behind the register. The custard is from Detroit based C. F. Burger Creamery.

    I also want to check out the Troy Family Aquatic Center and compare it to Red Oaks waterpark (which is great).

      I’ve never even heard of Golden Cone – we might have to make a trip this weekend! And such a good call on the Troy Aquatic Center – I’ve heard so many good things!
