If you read my last post about hosting your own summer decathlon and want another summer activity to do here’s another one. Host a summer party! I have listed a few things we did a couple of years ago and things we still do with our families and friends today! I had a lot of fun making this post and hope you have a good time reading it!! Here’s a look at my summer in past years.
Whenever we have a summer party, we usually grill cheeseburgers, brats and hotdogs, and we make sure we buy all the fixins. We also make big chef salads, fruit salads and other delicous salads. We usually have sweet tea, lemonade, or some other refreshing beverage. People bring delicous cakes and pies. Sometimes we’ll make homemade ice cream and impatiently wait listening to the maker churn and crunch the ice. (Then the dog usually comes up and licks up all the slushy water.) :) We eat out on the deck and (as my family has said in the past…) eat until we are as full as ticks!
We usually swim in our pool, walk down the long lane beside our house or walk in the VERY nearby state park with our dog. We also bring our outdoor mouser cats up to the house and play with them, pet them, make toys out of yarn for them and much more! One time, we played all sorts of games like keep-the-egg-on-your-spoon (Except we used golf balls instead of eggs which was a good thing because I was much, much younger then and so were the rest of my cousins.) We got prizes if we did well enough. If I was asked if I could do that party again today, I would say yes in a heartbeat!! Sometimes we just sit on our deck or porch and listen to our grandparents talk about the good old days. I find it very enjoyable. Then when it gets dark, we plug in the bug lights, light sparklers, set off fireworks, and “pop pop-rocks.” Grandpa lights the firecrackers to scare the moms talking on the front porch. Oh, don’t even get me started on the Roman candles. What fun we have!
