The 2030 LIst

My friend Angela has a great blog called The Need Less Experiment. I've been enjoying reconnecting with her and trying to implement some of the great ideas she has. The premise of the blog is how to live on less and how to create wonderful experiences with her family. One of the posts that intrigued me was called The 2030 List. Instead of indulging her children with all the trendiest and en vogue toys/gadgets, her family is focused on experiencing life together and making great memories. I think that's such a great idea so we've decided to follow suit. (The year 2030 is when her youngest child should finish college. Same goes for Nate so I've kept the name!)

The Wilkinson's 2030 List
Go to Disney World
See the Grand Canyon
Go horseback riding
Learn to ski
Go ice skating
Go hiking and camping
Learn to fish
Visit New York City
Visit Washington, D.C.
Visit at least 1/2 of all the MLB stadiums
Choose a charity/project as a family and volunteer at least 3-4 times per year
See Niagara Falls (from NY and Canada)
Get passports
Visit all of our birth places (Mike was born in Morocco and I was born in Germany)
Visit the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia
Take a fall foliage drive throughout New England
Travel to all four corners of the U.S. in an R.V.

What's on YOUR list?

Love it, as you know. I missed the 2030 list - it sounds GREAT.

I'll have to think of everything on our list, but a few would be:

- cross country road trip
- plant a garden
- visit Disneyworld
