A few years ago we compiled our favorite summer activities and made this Summer Fun sign.
Recently, I was chatting with my friend, Cassie, about summer. We were reminiscing about the lazy days of our childhood summers and day dreaming about the freedoms and the fun. I asked her to share her simple summers pleasures with us today!
Hello Barn Owl Primitives friends! I'm super excited to be here today. When you’re a kid, summer is this magical season of no homework, loosened rules, and toasted marshmallows. But, there’s something about entering adulthood where it tends to lose its luster – unlike the kiddos, we don’t have a school bell that signifies a multi-month break in our responsibilities.
Recently, I was visiting my parents when, after cooling off in their pool on a sunny Saturday, I found myself standing in their kitchen, fixing myself a sandwich. Striped beach towel around my waist, I layered slices of ham, bologna, salami, and American cheese onto a hotdog roll, adding a squeeze of yellow mustard as a finishing touch. Instantly, I was brought back to the endless hours I spent splashing around and playing Marco Polo as a kid, only stopping to run inside and make myself the same exact sandwich when I eventually worked up an appetite.
This chlorine-drenched wave of nostalgia reminded me that you can still experience these sweet summer moments, even after the age of 10. We’ve compiled 13 ways for you to capture the spirit while the season’s still in full force (in case a ham, bologna, and salami isn’t your thing):
What are your favorite summertime activities? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Remember ~ Keep it simple and enjoy your summer!

Lazy summer evenings around the pool with hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill for dinner. Always make it a point to be out stargazing on the nights there are meteor showers….like July 28th and 29th and my favorites- August 11th and 12th!
Have plenty of wishes ready! :)
