List: Ten things everyone must do at least once this summer.

The sun is finally shining and the coats are stored far away.
Although Spring was running real late in NY, I'm happy to say that she's finally here!
It's time to put away the electronics, throw blankets, and fuzzy sweaters.
It's now safe to replace those things with fun activities and plenty of vitamin D.
Summer also happens to be one of the shortest seasons so jam pack it with all the good stuff!

My family and I have spent the last two summers not doing much.
We were constricted with a baby girl, a tight budget, and very little time.
Our theory this summer is:  Make memories, not excuses.


Ten things everyone must do at least once this summer.

1.  Get wet without trying.
Whether it's a surprise smack with a water balloon or a sneak attack with a hose, get someone wet!
Anyone can jump in a pool.  It's way more fun when you don't expect it!

2.  Play until you sweat.
Play an intense game of basketball, tag, or even leap frog all while under the sun.
This is healthy and lots of fun!

3.  Grow a flower.
Find a place in your house, apartment, or back yard that gets lots of sun and watch it grow.
You may think this is silly, but every time you see it, you'll totally smile.  I swear!

4.  Read an entire magazine in the sun.
You can sit on a blanket in the park or on a towel in the beach.  Just read and tan.
...and, no, this is not just a girly pastime.  Smh...

5.  Toast marshmallows in a bonfire.
Once the sun goes down, gather family, friends, and a bag of marshmallows for a real good time.
Try not to laugh and enjoy while peeling off a toasted marshmallow shell.  Yum!

6.  Make a homemade popsicle.
All you need is wooden sticks, an ice cube tray, and your favorite juice!
Oh, and a freezer!  Don't forget the freezer...

7.  Enjoy a barbecue.
You can host the gathering or be a guest.  Either way indulge in a cheeseburger and some sun!
Attending a bbq and need some unique ideas to bring?  Problem solved here!

8.  Walk along a boardwalk.
It could be around your favorite beach, lake, or whatever.  Just enjoy the nighttime stroll!
While I live on Long Island with beach all around, I still prefer a boardwalk road trip to AC.

9.  Ride a bike.
Exploring is so much more fun when you're on a bike.
Unless your lucky enough to have a motorcycle then I totally meant that type of bike...

10.  Take a road trip to an unexplored town.
Pick a nearby town or village that you've never been to and explore every nook and cranny.
I love a good adventure in a town where you can park the car and spend hours walking!

What is an easy summer activity you must do each year?
