Our newest team member, Vanessa Mackall, adds to our summer activity list this week with some great suggestions to help keep the fun going all summer long! 

Have any summer traditions you like to do with the kids? Please do share with us!

Summer is a fantastic time to ditch the old routine and try new and exciting activities with friends and family. Stepping out of our comfort zone can be both challenging and very rewarding, offering plenty of shared memories and laughs along the way. Here are a few suggestions for families seeking to spend quality time together, while taking a break from their daily routines.

  1. Try a new sport or outdoor activity – Tennis, Golf, Kayaking, Tubing, Horseback Riding, Hiking, and other outdoor activities are typically low cost and lots of fun for families.
  2. A day at the park- Pack your picnic basket and head out to a scenic park of your choice (Great Falls is one of my favorites, if you are local). Don’t forget the Frisbee!
  3. Family Ice Cream Social- Nothing beats the heat quite like ice cream. Get creative while making signature sundaes with the family.
  4. Embrace the Day Trip – Don’t have a lot of time to spend in one place? No worries, day trips to local beaches and lakes can be a great way to splash around with the family when time is limited. If you live in Northern Virginia, Watermelon Park offers plenty of fun-in-the sun outdoor activities for families.

Summer presents a great opportunity for families to spend quality time together, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoy!


Until next week, Be Wise!
