Summer 2012 Bucket List – How are we doing?

Summer is in full swing and we’re working our way through our Bucket List.  Here’s our status… we need to keep moving if we will complete the list by the time school starts!

Our list includes:

  • Take the Port of Houston Tour (Free)
    • Free tours are available every day but Monday.  Check the schedule HERE.  We’re still looking forward to this adventure.
  • Visit the John C. Freeman Weather Museum (Free on Thursday Afternoons)
    • DONE!   This was small but fun.  It’s a good way to spend an hour.  Our post will come soon.
  • Visit the Houston Fire Museum 10 times (Adults: $5.00, Seniors: $4.00, Children: $3.00, Infants under 2 are free, Free for members)
    •  1 down, 9 to go.  We love this air conditioned playground.
  • Visit the Houston Zoo (Free first Tuesday afternoon of the month)
    • Not yet, but we’re excited to go try out the new splash pad!
  • Visit the Children’s Museum of Houston (Free Thursday Evenings)
    • The Children’s Museum makes me tired.  It is a fantastic museum, but it is SO BUSY.  I do plan to go for the kids, but give me a few more weeks to build up my strength.
  • Complete the Houston Public Library Reading Program (Free)
    • We need to get moving on this!  The good news, it is that it’s not hard to read 30 books to little kids.  And once you log 30 books, you get:   One voucher for a free ticket to a Houston Astros game (children K-12); one free child’s ticket with the purchase of an adult Houston Rocket’s ticket; entered into a Grand Prize drawing for an iPod Touch (Ages 13+), a Nintendo 3DS, or a LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet.  Check HERE for details.
  • Read All the Books on the HISD “Name that Book” list (Free)
    • Okay, okay, we’ll get our act together.  The good news is, we can read the HISD Name that Book list and count them towards the Library Reading Program.
  • Teach Brooke to Swim
    • We’re working on it.  I’ll post a video when we’re swimming!

If you are making your own bucket list, be sure to check out the FREE Admission days at the Houston Museums HERE.  To see the big list of free things to do in Houston, go HERE.
