Summer time is perhaps my favorite time of the year for just hanging out and having fun. In our house, we love to have fun every day! Whether it’s swimming, camping, hiking, ice skating, relaxing in the sunshine, or roasting marshmallows over the fire in our front yard, every day has something special to offer. One of my top priorities as a mom has been to give my kids enough good wholesome experiences that they can never complain that their childhood was anything less than awesome.
