Come along with us and be inspired to add some fun to your summer days!




Lexi @ Lextin AcademySummer Family Fun: Our Bucket List

“I’ve seen them everywhere on Pinterest.  It’s the Summer Bucket List!  So, I decided to make my own bucket list of family fun ideas for this summer-even if it is a little late.  Our summer might run through September this year as we work to get settled, so we’ll need all the ideas we can get to keep the kids busy!”

Alyson @ Family Style SchoolSummer Fun, Family Style 

“We are big time into having family fun.  I mean look at my blog, it is called Family Style.  We love doing things together.  I am realizing that as my children get older it gets harder to do. We are also not made of money, so we look for inexpensive things to do.”

Amy B. @ Bow of Bronze20 Super Cheap Summer Activities to do with Children

Heather A. @ Only Passionate CuriosityCaves and Snails

“Belgium continues to be our family’s favorite place to go in Europe. I’m sure at some point we will branch out and explore somewhere else, but with Belgium waffles and chocolate practically in our backyard, we can’t resist it. This past weekend we decided we had enough of spending the rainy summer at home, so we packed up our bags and headed to Belgium.”

Lori S. @ Special Connection HomeschoolVacation Bible School 2012

“Since we are very active in our church Vacation Bible School is something our entire family is involved in and enjoys. It’s our favorite way to not only spend some fun family time together, but to serve others in the process.”

Tess H. @ Circling through This Life10 Family Fun Things for Summer 

“Recently I blogged about preparing for a staycation.  I hinted that I’d be doing another post talking about the fun stuff we’d do on our staycation. I also want to mention some of the the other things we like to do for fun as a family during the summer.”

Brandy B. @ Kingdom AcademyIt’s Summer! Now how do I keep these kids busy?

“The worst phrase a mom can hear is “There is nothing to do!!” So, how do I keep this from happening? Let me tell you “

Julie C. @ Creatin’ Classical ChaosSummer Family Fun VBS-style

“This was the first year the kids attended VBS and boy did they have fun. Our church used the Praise VBS curriculum this year which was a blast for my little ones.”

Patsy B. @ Ms. B’s Bonnet3 Essentials for Family Fun on the Road

“Road tripping can be grueling, but it can also be a whole lot of fun if you include three essential ingredients.”

Gwen T. @ Toliver’s to TexasSummer Fun? 

“In the evenings, once the blazing heat has somewhat burned off and we’ve settled into the upper 90s, we often head outside as a family.”
