Some of my favorite memories as a kid were summer nights with family and friends. One town we lived in the older kids and younger siblings would play hide and seek at dusk on a whole block.
We would hide under carports and in trees in backyards. It was so fun – there must have been 30 kids playing.
There was a lake across from our house and I remember eating watermelon and playing with sparklers with all the neighbors in the summer sitting by the lake.
Anytime is a good time to make memories with friends and family. I heard someone say recently – you never know when it’s a “last time”.
You didn’t know it would be the “last time” you’d play kickball in the street, or ride your bike to the convenience store with friends.
Make a point to make those memories – don’t be too busy, or self entertained (hello cell phones) to mark any day or few minutes as a special day.
My kids loved that I kept tons of bottles of $1 shaving cream in the house – we never knew when a shaving cream fight might break out. Hubby and I might start one ourselves and then throw them all in the backyard with cans of shaving cream.
Don’t let those warm, long summer nights go to waste. Get in the kitchen as a family and make a colorful meal or dessert, just because you can. Here are some ideas:
