Summer resolutions

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the weather, the crisp air.

Summer is my most anticipated season. I always think the next summer is going to be one to remember. Unfortunately, it doesn't always play out that way. It seems like summer flies by and all the things you wanted to do never got done because you were too busy.
Well, that will probably happen again this summer. But, I'm going to try to plan ahead this time and, hopefully, accomplish some of those things I never had time to do last summer.
Here's a list of things I want to do/accomplish/experience this summer (June 1-August 31):

Spend as much time outside as possible
(preferably with my wife and kids)
Date my wife at least 10 times
Take my wife on a weekend getaway
Visit with friends and family

Get my money's worth ($17) out of a fishing license

Play more than 2 rounds of golf

Cook out more than cook in

Eat more corn on the cob

Read 2-3 books that challenge me

(currently reading "God's Secret Agent" by Sammy Tippit)

Serve others in new ways
Play disc golf with friends
Do a parrot head pose for a picture

Take my family to a beach
Swim
Camp
Run, and finish, a 10K race
Drink iced tea

Learn to play my guitar


I give anybody who reads this permission to keep me accountable. I want to do all of these things, not just write about them. (Sorry for all the pictures, unless you enjoyed them)

Wow, all I want to do is ride a dirt bike... but you... you have it all covered. I will keep you accountable on the fishing.

Other than the corn on the cob, the tea and the 10K, I think that we have an identical list. If I'm ever in town I would love to keep you accountable on the disc golf part (first week of July...).

If you are able to accomplish all/most of this list, you will have had an amazing (and busy) summer. Keep us posted on your progress!

PS.- You forgot to add wrestling.
