As I posted on Tuesday, I have big plans for this summer, the biggest of which involves spending quality time with my peeps! And with that in mind, I’m going to do something I haven’t done since starting this blog over 5 years ago: take a little break. So, for the next 2 weeks, I’m stepping away from the computer and unplugging a little.

I’m going to miss you, but when I get back, we’ll catch up and I’ll share some of my plans, but in the meantime, if you’re looking for some fun things to do with your people on these fun summer days, check out these ideas I’ve shared in summers past…

Go berry-picking with the kids and then whip up this easy cobbler!

Or, make some delicious homemade ice cream with this easy recipe

And save time in the kitchen on your summer nights with this simple meal that the whole family will love!

Host a fabulous party outdoors! Like this outdoor movie party with a popcorn bar…

Or a talent show party like this one with your best friends… (We still talk about this party all the time!)

If you’re hitting the road for a trip with the kids, this idea may make the car ride a lot more fun…

And don’t forget to plan a little shin-dig to celebrate Dad. These free printables will help!

Whatever your plans–have fun and make some memories while you’re at it. I’ll see you soon, friends!
