Entertaining Kids in the Summer

Now that my kids are 10,6, and 4, we have a few summers under our belt and I feel like I have learned a few things and figured out what works best for our summer and keeping the kids (generally) happy.  First of all, we always do our outings for the day in the mornings.  It isn't 100 degrees yet, the kids are all energized and ready to go, and there are less people in all the public places (can you tell I don't like crowds?)  Then, after a couple or few hours (or even an entire day) we come home and have time to relax in the air conditioned house for a while (quite time/tv time/resting time) and still an hour or so to do chores, clean up the house, and make dinner.  This schedule works out so great for us!

Here are some of the things my kids are loving this summer:


1. The reservoir/lake/beach:


This obviously depends on where you live, but you would be surprised what lies around you if you really look!  My kids love to hang out around water, play in the sand and swim a little, and I love to lay on any beach and relax!
