I hope you and your family have been enjoying the Summer as much as we have. I just love having my kids at home during the Summer!!
We’ve been spending as much time as possible outside, enjoying the warm, sunny days at the waterpark, playground, parks, and in our backyard.
Lunch and dinner is usually spent outside too!
My kids love eating outside on the back porch so we do it as often as we can.
My husband is the charcoal grilling master (and I love the break from cooking in the kitchen).
We moved the grill to our new concrete patio extension that was created with our driveway last month. It’s so convenient located right outside our kitchen now.
We also enjoy hosting barbeque parties in the Summer, inviting a few friends and family over. Everything taste better and is more fun outside!
And of course, fresh produce from your own garden taste best too. We are still waiting on our tomatoes to ripen but have enjoy peppers and cucumbers so far. My husband made his own compost last year and kept turning it over the winter and spring months. It really nourished the soil and gave our plants a head start. We’ve implemented other organic gardening measures too, so I feel really good about the produce we will soon harvest for our family.
Even our puppy, Roxy enjoys checking on our garden.
Ahh, Summer…all fun and no work…how I wish!
Even having an ‘easy’ BBQ or picnic creates messy dishes to be scrubbed and cleaned. That’s why I’m so glad that I was able to test out and switch to Quantum® Powerball® Power & Free™ and Jet-Dry® Power & Free™ earlier this year.
Finish gives me more time for fun and I spend less time on on cleaning. It really takes the chore out of dishes and gives me clean, spotless dishes every time – without pre-washing, it even works on 24-hour stuck on messes!
I am a member of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms. This is a sponsored conversation, I received products and compensation.
I also like that the new Finish Power & Free line uses less harsh chemicals, fragrances and dyes compared to other brands. It uses hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine bleach to give you sparkling, clean dishes every time.
It is even safe for use with baby products, you can feel good about handing your toddler a sippy cup without a chemical residue!
I hope you will Finish your Summer with more fun! Get outside with your kids as often as possible.
Enjoy eating outside as much as possible too, as we all know, colder weather will be here before we know it (like this week, we are wearing jeans and hoodies!), trapping us all inside! ugh. Enjoy it while you can! 🙂
