Growing up, summer time was my very favorite time of year. School was out and the days were slow. There are so many things that I remember loving about summers as a kid. After I became a mom, I knew that I wanted to try and make my kids’ summers as fun as I remember mine being.
So I decided to do what moms do best. I decided to come up with a list of some really fun summer activities that I know the kids will love. I figured y’all would be interested in seeing what I’ve put together.

1.) Watch fireworks
2.) Make homemade popsicles
3.) Visit the zoo
4.) Catch lightning bugs
