My Spring “Bucket List”

Tulip Festival 2012 - 0022

Today is the first day of Spring! After the cold, dark months of winter I always crave the longer days and bright optimism that come with Spring. This year is no exception, and I’m so excited for all of the changes that come with the new season. I want to make sure I’m taking full advantage of this special time of year, so I decided to make myself a Spring “bucket list”. Here’s what I’m going to try to accomplish in the next few months:

  • Splash in puddles with rain boots and umbrellas
  • Dye Easter eggs with the boys
  • Plan a special birthday date for my hubby
  • Organize at home (this one’s not too fun, but it needs to be done!)
  • See baby ducks and geese at the pond
  • Go to Mt. Vernon for the tulip festival
  • Pet fuzzy animals at a petting zoo
  • Take a spring break vacation to a sunny locale
  • Run at least twice a week (I just signed up for a half marathon in June!)
  • Make a bug jar
  • Drive with the windows down in my car
  • Spy a rainbow
  • Go for family walks at least once a week
  • Catch a frog (we have a pond behind our back fence so our yard is usually full of the little guys this time of year)
  • Eat asparagus (the taste of Spring)
  • Go for a family bike ride
  • Take photos of the boys in a lupine field
  • Find a butterfly
  • Pull off an April Fool’s Day prank
  • Get our tax return (woohoo!)
  • Plant something (I have a brown thumb and really don’t enjoy gardening, but I want to try making something grow)
  • Fix our yard (re-seed where the dog has worn dirt paths through the lawn, weed, clean up the landscaping…all kinds of fun stuff)
  • Play in a new park that we’ve never been to before
  • Smell hyacinth and lilies

What are some of your favorite things to do in the Spring?
