This month, I’m excited to spend as much time as possible outside soaking up the sun! It’s finally summer and we are here for it! Here are some of our plans to enjoy this month.
Play at the splash pad. It’s not a guarantee that the Minnesota lakes will be warm enough for swimming this month, but there are lots of free splash pads to enjoy on a hot day!
Enjoy a flower garden. In case you hadn’t noticed, I LOVE flowers. So much is blooming this month and I don’t want to miss it! James really likes flowers too, so we’re planning on exploring some wildflower gardens this month. Local friends, send your suggestions my way!
Have a picnic. Bring along some fresh-squeezed lemonade for a special treat.
Pick wildflowers. Just make sure they don’t belong to anyone!
Make sun tea. My mom always did this when I was growing up and it’s so fun! Put 3-5 tea bags in a glass pitcher or mason jar, cover with cold water, and set it in the sun to steep for the day.
Enjoy some watermelon. We’re excited for watermelon season! Little tip: around here, Trader Joe’s seems to always have the best deals on really good watermelon.
Play in the sand. Even if the water is still cold, a day at the beach can still be a blast.
Make a sweet craft for Daddy. Father’s Day is just around the corner! I’m planning on helping the kids make something fun for Dad.
