Longer days and warm evenings are two of my favorite things about summer.
We don’t have to rush the kids inside for dinner, showers, and bed time by 8:00pm. In Florida, the sun is still shining until close to 9:00pm in the summers! It’s our favorite time to float in the pool and grill.
Creating an outdoor retreat is one of the projects I am working on right now. When the hubs was deployed, making the backyard pretty was not on my priority list. So now there is a ton of work to do back there.
I got some great outdoor living inspiration from our link party this week.
For those of you who are new to Family Fun Friday, let me explain. Each week my friends, Monica, Adrian and I throw this link party. What that means is that we invite other bloggers to our blogs to share their best family friendly posts.
These are some of the best and undiscovered recipes, crafts, homeschooling resources, and parenting articles from around the web. We then pick our favorites and feature them during the next week’s link party. Take a look around and visit some of our awesome blogging friends.
