Our Family Bucket List (2017)

I've shared winter, summer and autumn bucket lists on the blog in the past but have never shared a general one for the whole year before. There's so much that I want to do this year as a family and for myself so I thought by writing them down I'd have more of a chance of actually doing them as I can cross them off! Some of these are places for us to visit whilst some are for myself as well as some goals for the year that I want to achieve. Hopefully you can get some ideas to add to your own list too. 

Last year I had so many plans but never got round to doing them all but now that Harry is older and doesn't use the pushchair anymore I think it will be easier to go places and just pack up the car and go away for a few days every so often. We live in North Wales and there is so much to do and see right on our doorstep although there's not much for the kids ages that we haven't already been to so this year I want to go further afield and have a few weekends away.

Here's our family 2017 bucket list:

Go back to Bluestone Wales

Take the kids to Chester zoo at least once

Do you have an annual bucket list? I'd love to hear what's on yours!


  1. We haven't got one but this has inspired me to sit down with Amy tomorrow and write one. Great idea x

  2. I do have a few things in my head but I haven't written them down in a blog post yet because I haven't decided how I go about doing it.
    New country, can be Ireland. I'll show you around. :)
    We are planning to take a few mini breaks this year with the kids. With one of them being going to Peppa Pig World, Thomas Land and Center Parcs. We will do this instead of taking a summer holiday. I do plan on going to Disneyland Paris too but I think I wait another year or two when Chloe is a bit older.

  3. I love this list and how there's stuff for you and stuff for the family. I can't wait to see you tick everything off! x

  4. Great idea !! I haven't prepared it yet but this has motivated me to sit down and prepare it.

  5. The game gta 5 money online game is the very fast play.some of these apps are even Trojans and viruses that could do a number.
