Summer To Do List, Revisited

Back in June, I came up with my summer to do list. Now that the last official weekend of summer is here, I thought I'd take a look at what I did, what I didn't do, and what I can still do this weekend!
Go to the drive-in
Go to the Lantern Festival at the Botanical Gardens
Go to Six Flags. Is it lame if we go to Fright Fest?
Take a walk in the evening (for some ice cream, maybe?) Went for pizza at Ferraro's!
(Learn to) Ride a bike. New fall goal? I really want to be able to rent bikes when we go to St. Pete's in November.
Visit the Tower Grove Farmer's Market. Hoping to get back again this fall before it closes!
Clean/decorate my house (and find a new one to move into this fall!). Not ready to announce anything official yet..... but stay tuned ;)
Explore neighborhoods - Cherokee, South Grand, Downtown. Didn't do this nearly enough.
Drink iced coffee like it's my job. Hartford Coffee and I are new best friends.
Go to LouFest. 
Make s'mores. Sounds like something to do at the lake this weekend!
Whip up a fancy cocktail. Another lake to do!
Spend a day at the pool. So what if it was in KC? I'm counting it!
Go to the St. Louis Zoo. Hmmmm. They're open in the fall, right?
Go golfing in Forest Park... or just ride along in the cart. Oops. Nope.
Visit the caves at Crystal City. Nope, again.
Get out of the heat and go bowling at Flamingo or Pin-up Bowl. Nope, again. Again.
Brunch. Often. Never often enough, but yes.
Drink champagne just for the heck of it. Can you drink champagne at the lake? Or is that weird?
Try something new (like paddle boarding?). Ha. Funny story. Technically, yes I tried paddle boarding. But went into a migraine 20 minutes into the lesson, causing dizziness, nausea and numbness. Awesome, right? I had to swim my board back to shore. :(

So there you have it. Looks like this weekend I'll be making s'mores and doing some fancy drinkin'.....

Also, the picture has nothing to do with this post, except for the fact that The Boathouse in Forest Park is a quintessential summer dining destination. Maybe next year I'll ride the paddle boats!

two things: the Zoo is only closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day, so come by anytime. Also, I highly recommned the boathouse's moonlight paddle picnic - it's a little expensive (maybe $70?) but you get a picnic basket, a bottle of wine (or a bucket of beer), a lantern, and a paddleboat for the evening. It's really fun and romantic - that's where J and I got engaged!

Excellent list!

Next time you are at Hartford ask for the "Nelson". Best Iced Coffee. Maybe Nelson or Jason will be there to make it.

Looking for something?
