Summer Bucket List for Teens

It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was a teenager myself. I remember anxiously anticipating summer vacation and was SO READY for the fun to begin. Some of my best memories are from those crazy summer days in the mid 90’s. Now I’m the mom of a teen girl and I hope that she can look back on her teen years and remember some amazing times. Of course, I want it to be good, clean fun!

I’ve come up with a summer bucket list for teens with my teenage daughter in mind. Heck, I’d even like to do some of the activities on this list. Who wants to help me build a blanket fort?!
