Conversation Topic: Summer Favorites

Wow! We’re only ONE week away from the 4th of July! Time to get those last-minute details pinned down. What do you plan to do this year?

Here are some great, family-friendly, summer-friendly activities that we look forward to every year:

  • Grilling

If it’s not going to be eaten fresh off the vine, it’s going to be grilled! Hamburgers, hotdogs, steaks, chicken, potatoes, peppers, onions, squash, and SO much more. We LOVE grilled food!

  • Swimming

One of the great things about living where we do is the abundance of water. We have a creek edging a considerable amount of our property. Down the road, just behind our hay pasture is a great swimming hole. After work on these hot, humid days, it’s not uncommon to find several folks from our farm and the neighboring farm cooling off down there.

  • Pitching Washers

This (pronounced in our family, “Pitchin’ Warshers”) is a great yard game. It’s become a family tradition! I don’t have a picture right now of our homemade set, but it looks something sort of like this:

Toss the washers into the holes. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? Think again! 🙂

What are your summer favorites? Ice Cream? Music festivals? Road trips? Flip flops? Do tell!
