30 Before 30 Update

Happy Summer!!!

I am WAY overdue for a 30 Before 3o update. First, I have to admit, I revised my list. I found that some of my items were too broad, and I wanted to make them more actionable. I also found that some would not be accomplished no matter how hard I tried. I mean, there was no way I was going to read 30 books while going to grad school.  With that said, here is the new list.

#3 – Go on a Cruise. We took a quick, three night cruise over Valentine’s Day 2014. Since it was our first cruise we kept it short but it brought us to two islands in the Bahamas.

IMG_1148#14 – Go to a Water Park. Now, I have been to water parks before, but it had been a long time. During our February 2014 vacation we were able to hit up two water parks. We visited Typhoon Lagoon at Disney and the mother of all water parks, Atlantis!

I have some others in progress, but I am more concerned about making sure the ones that need to get completed this summer don’t get missed!
