Ah, it’s finally here. The bugs are out, the sun is burning and we are where we always are on June 21st, the longest day of the year. We have the facade of a fresh start, juicy fruit to snack on and lively animal noises. Everyone is enjoying it, most of the time. But at the same time, we still have those days we’re stuck in our jobs wishing summer vacation still existed for everyone, everywhere. To avoid getting into a rut this year, try thinking up some awesome things to try out and make your summer tasty! Here are 13 suggestions to get you going.
Go to a food truck festival
Seek out a water slide and use it frequently
Master the art of iced tea, particularly sun tea. Drink it daily
Take a day trip somewhere you haven’t spent a lot of time at before
Go to a faire/ carnival and take lots of black and white photos
Rent (or buy??) a bicycle and ride around new towns
Have a picnic. Bring lots of cheese, sun tea and Kentucky Derby style hats
Watch meteor showers and/or the sun set/ rise
Make your own sorbet/ ice cream/ popsicles
Have a television show or movie marathon party and serve food related to what you’re watching
Escape to the library to cool off, check out more books than you can carry and learn something new.
Go berry picking
Host a Christmas in July Yankee Swap with regifted items or things found around the house. Don’t forget to drink frozen hot chocolate and make apple pie ice cream
