School is coming to a close and that means it’s time for the annual Summer Bucket List 2019 edition. Where we lay out all the adventures we hope to accomplish in the summer.

Summer Bucket List 2019

North New Jersey Summer Bucket List

This annual list started back in 2017 as a way to make the most of the summer with a stay at home parent. We are lucky to have a parent that can stay home so camps aren’t something we enroll the kids in. Instead we come up with ways to learn, travel, make memories and have fun. In 2018 we continued with with fun!
