2014 Family Bucketlist

Hello lovelies,

As you may or may not know but will soon find out…we are a very active family. Not only are we active but we do pretty much EVERYTHING together. So I decided it would be awesome to come up with a FAMILY bucket list.

When I approached my husband with my idea and asked him what he wanted to accomplish for our 2014 bucket list, he said very matter-of-factly, “I don’t want to die.” I rolled my eyes, then eagerly sought out my boys hoping for a more useful reply when I was met with this familiar response, “We don’t want to die.” So basically, I have established no one in my family wants to die prior to the end of 2014. Now that we got that out-of-the-way, I was able to grill them on ideas for our list. And grill them I did…


We have been very blessed in our ability to have family adventures. We have Safaried in Tanzania, Africa, Trekked the rain forests of Costa Rica, Picnicked on the lawn of The Louvre in Paris, France, Shopped in the flower market in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA and Cruised the Caribbean to name some of our family favorites.

Our 2014 bucket list represents not only our desire to try new things and visit new worlds but to most importantly do it TOGETHER. We hope you enjoy our bucket list and follow along on our adventures to show that families really can still be families.

From our home to yours with love!!
