Creating a Family Bucket List

I stumbled across a Steve Harvey show recently when he talked about a Family Bucket List. It got me thinking that I have actually not intentionally drafted a Bucket List with my family for my family.

For all those who do not know what a Bucket List is; the term "Bucket List" was made popular in a 2007 American comedy-drama film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The film is about two terminally ill men (portrayed by Nicholson and Freeman) on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket". "Kick the Bucket" is another expression for "To Die".

Let's forget the morbid part of dying. The Family Bucket List can mean a list of things to do before kids leave home for university or marriage. Or it may even mean a list of things to do before a certain date. The thrill is in getting the family to come up the list and actually doing things together. It really is a fun-filled way of creating memories that will last forever.

Here are some of the activities you could put on your "Bucket List"
  • Travel somewhere exotic with the family, say the Equator at Nanyuki, Kenya
  • Go Bungee jumping (Not for the faint hearted, mind you)
  • Go to Disneyland whether Paris or Florida
  • Visit an Old Folks Home together to help out with some chores
  • Go Camping with the Family
However, for some families it might just be 
  • Going for a picnic together
  • Going for Dinner at a restaurant
  • Attending a Family movie 
  • Playing a game of Monopoly 
The objective is to spend time together and create good memories.

As for me, I need to start developing my "Bucket List". 

What do you think would be on your list?
