2012 Summer Bucket List

I've been noticing that Bucket Lists are all the rage nowadays. I believe the saying it orginated with the phrase "kick the bucket" and is a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket."

Most recently I have found lots of people making Summer Bucket Lists -things they want to do during the summer (internet search or look on Pinterest for Summer Bucket List).

So as not to be left out, I submit to you the River Region Family Summer Bucket List 2012 Edition:

(Most of the items on our list are free-because that's how we roll. All are in the River Region area. Click on the clickable links in each item for more info.)

Take a walk around Blount Cultural Park's walking trails and the Shakespeare Garden & Amphitheater. Then feed the ducks. Have a picnic.

Take a walk by the Riverfront and then cool off at the Amphitheater Splash Pad

See a movie (free or cheap)

Go fishing (no license needed on 6/9/12)

Pick blueberries (or some other produce)

Play in the Artworks gallery at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.

Go to a library storytime (Montgomery, Prattville, Wetumpka)

Go ice skating

Have a picnic in a park that you have never been to (Montgomery, Autauga, Elmore)
