Summer Fun List 2015

Tomorrow is May 1st and I am officially thinking of SUMMER! 
Hensley's last day of school is May 27th and since his school is going back way early this year      (July 28th!!), we have a short time to get in a lot of fun. Of course we will spend a lot of time by the pool but this summer I also want to get in some different activities. There is so much to do so close to our area to do and now that Hensley is a little older it's time to start some new experiences. Last summer when we visited a near by park and waterfall (you can find that post here) it really lit a fire in us to start exploring new places and taking more adventures. 

I came across this website a few days ago. It really inspired me and I hope we can do a few of these this summer and continue working on it through out the year until its done. With Hensley's school starting so early they sort of following the year around schedule which means they get several weeks throughout the year off. Since all the other kids will be in school during these times I am hoping it will be the perfect time to check a few of these off our list. Speaking of lists, we had a summer fun list on the blog here and although we did quite a few of the items there were some left that we are excited to do this summer :) 

Here's the list! 

1. Admire the Blue Ghost fireflies in DuPont State Recreational Forest

2. Take a trip to Jordan Lake to hopefully see some Bald Eagles.

3. Take a plunge down Sliding Rock. 

4. Climb to the top of Chimney Rock and also see Lake Lure and Broad River Gems and Mining while we are there. 

5. Visit Biltmore Estates and maybe take a horseback ride through the grounds. 

6. Cross the Mile High Swinging Bridge at Grandfather Mountain. 

7. Visit the site of the first U.S. gold rush at Reed Gold Mine. 

8.Carriage Ride through Wilmington and see the USS North Carolina battleship. 

9. Attend the Greensboro Summer Solstice Festival 

10. Kure beach trip of course :) 

11. Hensley really wants to attend a Break Dancing Class and they are having them at a local dance studio starting July 7th! We are planning to give it a go!

12. Hit up the drive in! Not too many towns have one left but there is one near us and we plan to catch a movie :) 

13. Lastly we hope to visit a local racetrack near our home. It's a dirt track and I think Hensley would love it :) 

It's a lot to squeeze in this summer but I am hopeful we can check off a lot of these adventures and HEY, what he don't we will work on next summer! :)  A trip to Texas to visit my parents is also coming up this summer :) We are excited to all take our very first plane ride!!!
