Do you feel like summer is slipping by even though it just got started? We’ve officially been on summer break two weeks and I feel like it’s almost over because we have so much planned. We have a ton of traveling as well as family and friends visiting us. I’m determined to bring my kids back to the summers that I remember. I don’t know if it’s me getting older or with everything going on in the news I want to just bubble wrap my kids and brings them back to the good ole days of running barefoot through the yard and playing outside until the fireflies are the only things lighting our way. Either way, I’m determined to make this summer one to remember.
How to Make this Summer one to Remember
As parents we put a lot of stress on ourselves to create these amazing experiences for our kids. Whether it’s a family trip to the amusement park or sending them to a fun camp. I need us all to stop a minute. Stop spending a ton of money on all day excursions and camps. What do you remember most about your summers as a kid? I remember spending all day at the local park swimming in what I would definitely now classify as a pond. Seaweed grabbing at my foot with minnows racing the opposite direction of all us kids splashing in the water. One classic treat that brings me straight back to that park are the Original Brand Popsicle®. It was a treat on days where we got to go over to the snack shack to pick out something to eat. I never tuned down a Popsicle®. This fourth of July I plan on having my girls enjoy a Popsicle® pool side with their friends. Simple, easy and just perfect.
I want my girls to know the simple fun of enjoying time with friends, gorgeous weather and the opportunity to swim like fish. We are fortunate that our neighborhood has a community pool. Otherwise, I’d be looking for the nearest “pond” to have them swim in. My girls love the Original Brand Popsicle® and take full advantage of having the original summertime treat. I want my girls to realize that lazy days are days that should be remembered too because they’re not in a classroom. Instead they are socializing and growing in their physical abilities. Creating friendships and memories that will last them a lifetime.
