Two Cents Worth – What is on your Summer Bucket List?

This week we began a series that will showcase some of the fun things available to do around the O’Fallon and Shiloh area during the summertime. We’re calling it the O’Fallon Weekly Summer Bucket List and we’re hoping you all get into the fun.

There are lots of things to do around town and there’s no way for anyone to know everything available to them. The Summer Bucket List is designed to showcase some of the activities kids, adults, and families can do. However, we can’t highlight everything. And that’s where you come in.

We’re asking that while you’re out and about doing your local summer activities, take a quick photo and upload it to your favorite social media platform with the hashtag #ofallonweeklySBL. This way, not only can we share our ideas for fun in the summer, but you can share yours as well.

Earlier today, Maxwell and I took some time out to visit the Splash Pad and cool off a bit. The little guy is still learning to walk, but he did great tootling around and putting his hands in the jets of water. He didn’t really like getting his face too wet though. While I was there I took the photo featured with this column. This photo is exactly what we’re talking about for the Summer Bucket List. Just take a quick pic of your family having fun and then tag it online with the hashtag #ofallonweeklySBL.

There’s no excuse for kids to be sitting around saying they’re bored. There are lots of fun things to do and encounter in O’Fallon and Shiloh. So start thinking about what activities are on your Summer Bucket List and start checking them off. And be sure to let us in on the fun.
