The List: Summer Version!

Today is so not a summer-y day.  Actually the past few days have been pretty lousy.  Lots of rain.  I know some people are fans of the rain, but I much prefer the sunshine.  It just hasn't felt much like summer these past few days, I've been wearing SOCKS.  And I get hot very easily, so that's weird for me to be wearing socks.  Ha.  Anyway, to get me excited for summer, I decided to put together a little list of some things I'd like to do this summer.  A summer edition of "The List".
Make homemade ice cream.  We have an ice cream maker, and it's never even been used.  Ha.  So, I want to change that this summer!  This roasted strawberry coconut milk ice cream by Sprouted Kitchen sounds delicious.
Make lots of delicious mojitos with the mint I'm growing.  & iced teas and other things.  Just use lots of mint!
Pick lots of fresh fruit.  June-July is the time to pick strawberries! & raspberries are in July.  Hmm I wonder if there's a place around here to pick blueberries... Okay, cool, a quick google search answered my question!  Haha.   I want to pick pears, too!    Awesome. 
Make pizza on the BBQ.  Man, this list is totally revolving around food so far, isn't it?  Ha!
Go to a Blue Jay's game.  Keith & I didn't go on the weekend, but hopefully we'll go a few times this summer.  Tickets are something like 12$?
Sleep outside.  We slept outside a few summers ago, but I want to do it again.  Haha.  Squirt LOVED it.  She just ran around all night long.
Visit Toronto Island again & see my sheeeeeeeeep.  Ah, I love that sheep.
 A few other things: go camping!  Lots!  Rent a houseboat with Tim, De, Nat & Kris!  And Keith, of course.  Go all through the locks!  Explore!   Check out lots & lots of waterfalls with Keith.  Go on lots of picnics.  Go to the beach!  A lot!  Take out Keith's boat!  We didn't go out at all last summer, bummer.  Just have an awesome summer in general!  Oh, and have another Toronto bloggers meet-up!  Haha.

Do you have any exciting things planned for the summer?  Or any things I should add?
