This month marks the arrival of summer. While the allure of summer might not be what it was back when we were school-aged and anxiously awaiting the bell to ring on the last day of school, summer can still be a season filled with fun and excitement.
During the summer months the days are hot but they also last even longer, giving you plenty of time to squeeze in fun activities for two before sunset even during the work week (if you can arrange child care). Summer nights are often some of the most beautiful nights of the year and are perfect for evening strolls and embarking on new adventures.
Although it is likely you will spend most of the summer engaging in family activities and keeping your little ones busy and entertained, be sure to make an effort to have some fun with your own “summer love.”
