With Summer rapidly coming to an end, consider some of these ideas to make memories with you and your loved ones.
Backyard barbecues are forever fun. One way to make it extra special is to involve everyone with food preparation. Encourage them to try new recipes and surprise everyone.
Borrow a neighbors projector if you have to. Watching movies outdoors with your kids or your significant other is a load of fun. You're never too old to make a blanket fort and cuddle.
Find a place away from city lights to limit light pollution and star gaze. There are a few great apps that can help you identify constellations. I highly recommend you take a look at the award-winning Sky Guide App.
Even if you're not an outdoorsy person, try camping. It is a lot of fun. Though you can get more durable gear at specialty stores like Cabelas, Sheels and REI, you can also get inexpensive camping gear at Walmart and other big box outlets.

- Scrape frozen juice with spoon into cup
- Add Sprite
