Every month we do what we call a “Monthly Adventure.” It can be big or small, free or pricier, outdoor or indoor. Really there are no rules but it has really helped us to prioritize FUN while accomplishing our financial goals. This year was a bit more challenging because I was pregnant and couldn’t do the usual hikes and outdoor things we normally do BUT we still managed to have a wonderful year and prioritize fun things even if they were a bit smaller. You should try it!
Here is our list to get you thinking:
January: Silicon Slopes Conference
February: Valentines Multi Course Dinner at a Local Restaurant
March: Went to a Shooting Range
April: Rented a Croquet Set and went to a Local Park
May: Visited The Real Life UP House in Herriman, Utah
June: Campfire in the Canyon
July: Stayed at Cabin and went Canoeing
August: Hiked and Camped in Bryce Canyon National Park
September: Visited a local Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival
October: Went on a Scenic Drive to Look at Fall Leaves
November: HAD A BABY (Not sure if that counts haha but it was definitely an adventure)
December: Made a Gingerbread House
There you have it. Hopefully this helps you to get your wheels turning. Again, it can be big or small. Different seasons of life require adjustments but if you prioritize it, you can still make it happen and make lots of family memories along the way.
