We’re already more than halfway through August (say what?!) and there’s still so much more summer fun left to be had! With the weeks and weekends speeding by, the end of summer feels much too similar to the Sunday scaries. However, fall doesn’t officially kick off until September, so we’re challenging you to complete our End of Summer Bucket List! Take advantage of these last few weeks, and see how many of these sweet activities you can accomplish before the leaves start changing colors!
