  1. Way cool kiddos!!!! Ya KNOW, The Farm can knock about 25 of those off your list….! I’m just sayin’…. I expect to see you there!!!!!

  2. Everyone should do this list, even if it’s not Summer, including #3 – especially if you live somewhere like the North Pole, because that just makes it more of a challenge. I love # 38, 74 and 132 (Good luck with the photo comp Alicia!!!). Never, ever lose your enthusiasm for life….or writing girls. 🙂

  3. I liked #116 so much that I added it to my own list! And I love that you two are working on everything together! It definitely makes it more fun when you have someone to do the bucket list activities with. Keep having an awesome summer!

  4. Amazing blog. I love your list its very creative. You guys sound like you are having an awesome time trying to complete it 😀 Do you mind if i use #107 Put up posters looking for a pet rock on my own list?
