    I have done many of these on your list. Of course, for the exception of making your father’s fav lemonade recipe! There are a few others that I may try as well. They sound so fun!

    What a great list and not the usual summer activities. I like the throwing a dart on a map idea. Might try that one. It is just a matter of doing something isn’t it. Life doesn’t have to be boring.

    Make making sun tea is THE only way I know how to make (iced) tea at all–I can remember seeing the jars when I was a little girl and there are pics of my mom as a girl with the sun tea jars behind her on the fence posts! You just made me remember…how funny is that ; )

    4. Attend 1 outdoor festival in NYC
    5. See at least 1 Broadway show
