5 Ways to Say Yes to Summer: Here are the top 5 ways that I’m saying yes to summer

Say Yes to Summer

1) Pool Days! – A day at the pool can be relaxing, but lets be honest, it can also be stressful for parents!  To help you make the day more carefree here are some tips to enjoy our day!

  • Arrive to the pool early to get a good spot
  • Reserve plenty of chairs!
  • Assign pool buddies, so that everyone is watched and accounted for.  
  • Keep the the sunblock out as a reminder to keep re-applying
  •  Don’t forget floats and swimming life vests for the kids!  

And most of all ENJOY your time outdoors! Soaking up some much needed Vitamin D
2) BBQ’s and late night Firepits  – Eating healthy is so much easier in the summer with the grill going!  Inviting neighbors and friends over for a healthy BBQ and night by the fire pit is a must!  (But don’t forget to get ingredients for smores!  A must for any fire pit!)

3) 4th of July Celebrations – Spending the 4th with family and friends are a must!  Here in Denver, personal fireworks are illegal and because of the dry heat, we’re usually on a fire ban. (Is that common in most parts of the country?)  Because of the fireworks ban, every year we travel to a part of the state that allows fireworks.  I LOVE watching fireworks…I feel summer in the air while watching them!  Thinking about hosting your own 4th of July BBQ?  Evite has an invitation to help you plan your party!

4) Camping and Outdoor Fun! Even if you’re not into camping, making time to get outdoors, go on a walk, hike, enjoy nature!  Make sure you spend at least 1 day we week outside doing something active, exciting and new!  We go fishing, camping, hiking and on bike rides all summer long.  What does your family do to get outside?

5). Beach Time! 

Here in Colorado we’re land-locked.  Our “beaches” are lake or reservoirs, but we still like to pretend we’re on a real beach….like the one below! 🙂  If you’re lucky enough to live near the beach, you’re spending your weekends cooling off by the water.  Listening to the ocean waves and enjoying the sun!  Soak it up!! And while you’re at it….invite your friends to join you!




What yearly traditions remind YOU of summer?  Pool days? Beach Days? Camping?
