Maybe when I’m 18 my parents will let me go hiking by myself. No one ever has time to go with me. XD I mean I’ve gone hiking with family lots of times, but it’s sort of become a thing of the past. In my dream world I would hike the whole A.T.

I loved most, except 4 or them, so, I figured it would be easier to tell you the ones I “wouldn’t” be doing, or “would not” like to do LOL πŸ˜‰ I will not be doing #18, #32, #36, or #45 :):) Great list though Maggie. I pray you get to enjoy all of these on your list. Oooh, that would make for a great series of post πŸ˜‰

Theses all sound do fun!
I can’t believe it’s almost July! It doesn’t feel like summer to me for some reason! (although it’s definitely hot enough!)
I’m defiantly NOT doing number 6! I got a second degree sunburn on my shoulder and a week later it still hurts just to lifted me arm! ;-(

going for a walk, writing in my journal, getting lots of sun, reading, going for icecream, hiking, exploring a new part of my city, exploring a restaurant and watching the sun set are some of my favorite things to do. I definitely want to visit a farmers market, cook something new, have a picnic and visit the art museum/aquarium. What ideas have you done for the summer?

Those are great ones! I actually haven’t done much this summer yet, but I have had a water fight with my brothers, read a few books, and hopefully I’ll get to see some fireworks, too. 😊
