days are long and hot, but that doesn’t mean they have to be
boring. This year, create
a Summer Adventure list! This
is a list of things you and your family want to do before school
starts up again in the fall. It could be anything from going on a
mountain expedition to sleeping in until noon one day. This is a fun
way to make some memories as a family and delete the old routine by
having big (or small) adventures every day.

son’s favorite summer memory from last year was going to his
grandparent’s pool and swimming for hours. My daughter’s favorite
memory from last summer was the water and everything! I love putting
clothes on the line to dry. The smell of wind-blown sheets at night
is so relaxing! My husband liked when I made peach pie.
change things up, I am going to have the kids each create their own
list. The lists will be smaller, but more individualized to their
of my kids ideas include:
in the back yard
in the dark freeze tag
to the beach
to a local amusement park
a racing obstacle course in the back yard
ice cream from the ice cream truck
the dog to do the obstacle course
homemade ice cream
to a local battleground
a peace pie
swimming in a pool

your family and friends for some suggestions.
local. There are many websites that will help you find family and
kid friendly activities near your town. Google is your friend.
for state fairs, street fairs, and festivals!
fruits are ripe during the summer. Look for a local farm where you
can pick your own.
to the library, and not just for some reading material. Many events
will put up flyers at the library.
key is to just be yourselves! If you like to hike, maybe check out
geocaching at a local park. If you are an indoors type, make a list
of books you want to read. If you like animals, look into
volunteering at the local animal shelter. There are so many things to
do, you do NOT have to be bored this summer. The summer should be an
adventure that is built of fun and memories with each other.
