June 2, 2009 - Kim Collette
Ahh....Memorial Day Weekend has officially come and gone. Most of us are saying "HALLELUJAH"....the official start of summer! The cold and dreary months are a thing of the past! (Well....at least for a few months anyway!)Here's a list of some fun and entertaining things to do during the "dog days" of summer 2009:
Cook your breakfast on an outdoor fire or grill
Go paddle boating (not just for the kiddos...what a great date that would be!)
Play a pick-up game of something....baseball, softball, basketball or football
Swing on a swing (no...we are not too old!)
Take a bicycle ride
Play hooky from work (or for us responsible types.....use a couple vacation days to enjoy the summer)
Visit someone you haven't seen in a long time
Go enjoy the beach; build a sandcastle, have a picnic, surf
Spend the day at a fair or community days event
Go to an amusement park (and....actually let loose and scream your lungs out on a roller coaster!)
Go to a movie....(Those of you who get into "tiffs" about what to see, I have a solution. Choose the movie with the most letters or the least letters!)
Go on a picnic
Take a one-tank trip somewhere to get away for the day
Go to a pool for a quick dip
Mostly......have fun and be safe this summer!
While I WILL take my own advice on what to do this summer, I still have favorites that I've looked forward to for the past couple of summers.
The Upper Ohio Valley Italian Festival
A Yankees baseball game
An Indians baseball game
Playing fetch with my dog Ryder (if he would just give me the ball back to throw again!)
Bocce ball, cornhole, yard golf
Concerts or live music anywhere really
Sitting on the porch with a "cool" beverage
And...my favorite a long motorcycle ride with "Batman" and our friends!
Until next time friends!
