What to do outdoors?

It feels like summer is passing me by! What are some good, fun things to do outside?

Parks, amusement parks, hiking, biking, swimming, what else?
Not sure where you live...or if any of these things might be close...

- There are a lot of state and county fairs going on now.

- Or go pick your own berries, flowers, peaches, etc. I did this a few weeks ago, and then made lots of blackberry cobbler, smoothies, etc.

- Tubing - always fun on a hot day.

- Picnic

- Fishing
Grace sets apart Christianity from all other religions.

No other religion offers God's love and redemption coming to us free of charge, as a gift, with no strings attached, no performance required, no standard to meet.

Only Christianity dares to make God's love unconditional.

Well so far this summer I went to a picnic a BBQ and another random outdoor party, went to the dog park, went to the pool and the water park, ran through the sprinklers, cruised around on my bike, ate breakfast/lunch/dinner at restaurants that have outdoor patios, went shopping at an outdoor bazaar, went to the beach...

There's probably more but I just got a mental block.
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
we like to go canoeing.. we've just recently started playing disc golf..

go to park, enjoy the grass.. play on the swings.. play frisbee..

go skating or roller blading..
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I finally got down to the lakefront this past Friday, and it was wonderful. We didn't swim, but just enjoyed the park and the water and the breeze coming off of Lake Michigan...

This weekend, we're planning to go to a neighborhood festival (Greek fest).

Also, we're planning to go to the zoo.

-biking
It's so hard to do anything outside here in the summer. It's just too hot. I did spend all yesterday at the lake, boating & swimming.

It's hotter than all get out here, but we still manage to go to local festivals/fairs, outdoor music events, the botanical gardens, fishing, etc. We also barbecue with my husband's family and our friends at least once a month, and we all just sit outside and eat and drink and listen to tejano and mariachi music.

We've also been to Gruene and Fredericksburg just to walk around and see what there is to see.

My theory on hot weather is to a) wear sunscreen, b) drink lots and lots of water during the day and beer in the evening, and c) realize that EVERYONE is sweating their arses off, not just you.

If I don't have anything active to do outside, I love to just sit on my deck and read.

After such a long miserable winter, one really has to appreciate this nice warm weather...

So I like to:

Sit on the front porch at night with a glass of wine

Sit on the back deck and read or eat or chat

Walk the dog at various parks

Kayaking (I haven't done this yet, but buying one for next summer now that we're living next to a lake).

Bike Rides

Jet Skiing (too bad we sold ours recently)

Outdoor concerts

Go to the swimming pool!!

Golfing

Baseball games

Iowa State Fair!!!!!

I love summer
