You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great summer. I’m sharing some of my favorite summer bucket list adventures to cross off your list.
One of our family’s favorite summer adventures is an annual trip to the drive-in movie theater. If our schedules allow, we try to squeeze a few more trips in if possible, because we have so much fun! The drive-in is also an affordable way for families to see two first-run movies. The success of an awesome night at the drive-in comes down to a little prep work before you go. I’m sharing tips and what items to pack for the drive-in movie to help you have a great experience.

Should I get my hair wet?
That decision alone determines how involved my level of play will be with my boys.
I have a friend who is great a making family traditions for holidays (even those lame Hallmark ones.) April Fool’s Day is even a big deal in her family! Just ask the friend who ate a chocolate gnash covered cotton ball while visiting. (I’ll admit that one was a pretty good prank) She inspires me to put effort and details to create memories and traditions for my family.
So this year I thought I would try to make Valentine’s Day a little more special. I missed the mark and that’s ok. My perfect day had more of the elements of a drama and endings of a romantic comedy.
This winter has been unseasonably warm so attempting to try snowshoeing has been hit and miss all season. I’ve been able to try snowshoeing a few times this winter when we have gotten snow.
Our family’s first time trying was at local Winterfest event. We tried the types of snowshoes resembled wooden tennis rackets like you see pictures of Eskimos using.
