Summer 2016 Bucket List-Progress

I'm in denial that August is less than a week away!  I thought I would check on our summer bucket list progress thus far, just to see where we're at.  Most of the activities still on the list involve being outside for a longer period of time {& it's been SO incredibly hot here this month!}, so hopefully August brings temps closer to 80 instead of 100!  Some just can't happen yet {school supply shopping, Iowa State Fair, etc.} but I'm confident we're going to get 90% of this list accomplished!
