Team Mom: Summer Favorites

Summer can be a stressful time for moms… Not only is there pressure to keep the kids – who are home on break – entertained, but with the warm weather, there’s also pressure to make the most of it!

So, what do moms really like to do in the summertime that keeps them stress-free and the family happy? We asked the members of our Team Mom blogger network for their all-time summer favorites. Here’s what some of them had to say!

“We love the beach and hiking during summer. Our favorite places on Long Island are Jones Beach and Caumsett State Park.” – @notimemommy

“Beach! We love Ormond and Daytona for summer fun.”@theMomBuzz

“Crock pot meals are my summer staple. I can prep them in advance and have a hot, home-cooked meal on the table without having to sacrifice outdoor playtime with the kids.” – @LifeWithLevi

“Pool days and barbecues.”@superdumb

“Water gun fights.”@YellowTennessee

“Sunscreen, day trips exploring our state, play dates, beach time, and more sunscreen.”@nightowlmomma

“We love local water parks and the zoo during the summer.”@ToBeThode

“We love water parks, bubbles, backyard water play, pool days and watermelon!”@neighbormoms

“We enjoy the beach and water balloons for baseball.”@crazedmom

“Simple things! Fresh squeezed lemonade, roasting marshmallows, fresh cut flowers throughout the house, staying up a little late and having root beer floats on the porch . Really stopping to savor fresh flavors of the season and the beautiful weather.” – Charlene Gale Haugsven
