The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are changing, the kids are back in school. Must be the end of summer! We hope you were able to fit in all of the fun summer activities that you wanted to this year. If not, you only have 8 days left until the official start of fall! Here are some fun activities you may have missed that your family can try before the season's end.
Backyard Camp Out and S'Mores
The temperatures are getting lower, but that is the perfect time to enjoy a campfire. Don't have time for a weekend getaway now that the kids are in school? Pitch a tent in the backyard and have your own campout at home! Wayfare Magazine has a great twist on the traditional s'mores recipe so pull out the sleeping bags and check this one off the summer to do list! http://wayfaremag.com/2012/07/vanilla-blueberry-smores/
Ice Cream Party
No need to plan weeks ahead for this party! Grab your favorite ice cream flavors, toppings and cones at the store and have your own sundae bar. Let everyone choose their own flavor and toppings and you'll have a yummy party that the whole family will love!
Go For a Hike
The weather is crisp, but it's not too late to head to higher elevations for a beautiful hike. The leaves are already beginning to change, so you can hit the mountains and take advantage of some incredible views and landscapes. Get the family in the car this weekend and head out. It's a great way to fit in a bit of exercise while enjoying the great outdoors.
