Large Family Summer Bucket List

Summer time can bring boredom, complaining kids and tired moms or it can be a great time to relax and enjoy a less structured schedule. I often hear moms say they can't wait for the kids to start the school year again, but I am enjoying the time off and so are my children.

Here is our bucket list of fun, cheap summer activities in Atlanta. We try to do one, maybe two, activities a week.

1. Free Bowling - 2 free games a day, just pay for shoe rental
