Bucket List

Ok, so Mel started this trend on her blog, then Bookworm continued it.... you know I can't stand to not play, so.....
The bucket list...from a recent movie called the Bucket List .. .things you want to do before you kick the bucket.....
1 - Paint a public mural - like on the side of a big building down town
2 - Catch a big fish - like the salmon that almost ate our boat then got away
3 - Kids - one maybe two (I know, I'm getting too old for this one)
4 - Take my mother on a cruise (Ok, Jenn can come too. Since I'll have to have won the lotto to do this one, I'll take Jenn's mother too. Ok, since I'm dreaming, I'll take my cousin and my pseudo sister aka sister in law as well. Oh, and my bestest friend.)
5 - Build a soap box derby car
6 - RV up and down the Western coast line

I definately want to go back to DC. I saw a lot while I was there, but not like I'd like to. It was much to short a trip. So, when are we going to do it?
