Summer is almost here! For me, summer is a time of year to try new things and make memories. I love making a summer bucket list to keep me busy. There are so many adventures to look forward to for summer 2013! Here are 10 things that you should do this summer:
1. Go on a bike ride
Whether you go with family, friends, or just by yourself, it's always a refreshing way to get outside (even if it's just a short ride)
2. Host a barbecue/picnic
Barbecues are a great way to bond. Lemonade, hot dogs, and hamburgers are a summer must. It's great for any warm, Sunday afternoon.
3. Go swimming (and not in a pool!)
Swimming is a summer no-brainer. But try going swimming somewhere other than just a pool! Whether it's a lake, the ocean, or even a river, it's a different experience to be out in nature.
4. Go shopping.
If you're like me then you love shopping. I would actually consider myself a shopaholic. (If you need a good movie, this summer then also watch Confessions of a Shopaholic) Even if you don't have much to spend, buy an item or two and you'll feel better afterward, I promise.
5. Take a Saturday hike
My sister and I drive up to the canyon on weekends to go on a little hike. Hikes are so fun and so good for your health!
6. Try longboarding.
7. Make a gorgeous flower crown and take pictures.
Flower headbands are trending, and why shouldn't they be? They're glamorous and so fun to do a little photoshoot with. Click here for a great D.I.Y. floral headband.

8. Take a trip to the zoo
Whether you're a toddler, teenager, or an adult the zoo is always a good time! Make sure to choose a sunny day (and wear sunscreen!)
9. Make a nice breakfast
A good breakfast is a great way to start a day! Go to the store the day before to grab everything you need! Get some juices, fruit, and whatever you need for what you're making. I especially love crepes, but if you're not quite ready to make crepes, waffles are a great alternative!
I think everyone can agree that the most important part of summer is that you get to relax. Just lay back, do the things you love, and enjoy
