Ahhhhh, summertime – you’re my favorite!
The kids are out of school, the days are longer, and we all spend a LOT more time outside.

But, here at Involvery, we’re still plenty busy (but we’re taking time to PLAY as well).
Alrighty, let’s kick off Summer 2018 in a BIG way!
First thing – you MUST get an inflatable hammock!
These things are AWESOME!
They are the most comfy “air chairs” and so easy to take ANYWHERE.
We’ve tested quite a few of them – you can read our results here.
Our Favorite Things For This Summer:
These kid’s activities for summer are such great ideas to keep the kiddos busy this summer.
And we’re loving these summer cookout food ideas (yum!) – perfect for a crowd too!
Hosting a baby shower this summer? Why not have a CO-ED baby shower? Super fun ideas for couples baby shower!
We’ve also been obsessed with tiny houses!
Now that it’s June, you know what is RIGHT around the corner, right?
Yep – Father’s Day!
We have a TON of Fathers Day Crafts for the kids here – they’re all SO cute (and would make great gifts for Dad and Grandpa too!)
Need some Father’s Day gift ideas?
Toss in an inflatable hot tub…. and well, you’ll ALL be happy!
Now, at our house, the home bar is the big project (and when I say “big”, I mean GI-HUGIC and never-ending…lol!)
So he wants any and all cool home bar accessories to dress up his ‘man cave’.
He also wants to get a HEPA air purifier – I sure hope he doesn’t plan to use that so him and his buddies can smoke cigars! Ack!
So, that’s on the shopping list =)
Know what ELSE is on the ol’ Shopping List?
Geez-Louise – seems like everyone and their sister is having a baby lately! It’s seemed like all I’ve been doing is looking at cheap baby shower gift ideas…haha!
I’ve about decided just to get the hubby to make them each a sensory board!
I also got a FRANTIC call from my neighbor’s niece the other day. Poor thing, her baby just won’t stop crying and wanted to know all the baby colic remedies that WORKED for us.
If you’re a backyard bird nut like I am, we also have this new Backyard Bird Bath Tips article that is pretty darn interesting.
