Some Great Ideas for Summer Fun

Ever heard about people who try to impress neighbors that they really don’t even like?  Well here are a few ways to spruce up your home and life that just might make someone think you are trying to impress them.  Try one or more of these ideas and it won’t be long until your neighbors wish they had your home instead of their own! Let’s get started.

Getting Creative With Water

The chances are that neither you or your neighbors currently have a swimming pool. Whether you feel a swimming pool would be an affordable option is something that’s up to you, but you don’t have to spend masses of money! Instead, you could create a DIY water park for your children to have fun with. It doesn’t take a lot to make something that can rival swimming pools in terms of the amount of fun they provide! Get creative and search for some feasible ideas that might work in your yard to give the children a way to cool off this summer.

Big, Expensive Vehicles

Ever seen two men try to out-do each other by buying different kinds of luxurious RV’s! I’m not saying you need to go out and buy one, but it certainly could give you a great way to spend the summer. You can even rent RVs now and believe me when I say camping in an RV is much more luxurious than tenting.   Imagine if you can, heading out for a couple of weeks this summer and having everything you need right with you.  You can cook your own food on a stove, sleep in the same bed every night and have many of the benefits of home.

A Patio Area

If you’ve got the time and money to put some real investment into your garden, a patio area can really improve it. Not only does this give you a nice space to sit and relax, but it improves the look of your garden massively. There are lots of things you can do to be creative with this, too. Personally, I love the added touch of a waterfall. It’s only a small addition, but it adds an element of relaxation and class to your backyard. You can do whatever you like with it, though. Think about your budget and the style you want to convey.

Create A Kids Play Area

This would make a great summer project!  If you’re the sort of person that is able to get creative and hands-on, why not create a kids play area for them? From swings to slides and much more, you can do practically anything you want to do! Make sure that if you’re going to do this, you do so with the utmost care. It needs to be a safe place for kids to play in. Invite the neighbors kids around when it’s done and watch as they tell their parents how great your garden is!

Improve your home because you want to improve it and make it a better place to live! You and your family will enjoy adding one or more of these projects to your summer.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
