Summer Nights 11Jun13
Now it is officially June, which, in my mind means it is officially summer — and Mother Nature definitely got the memo! The temperature has been warm to hot, the sun has been shining, and we’ve already had our fair share of stormy weather.
Summer gives us the best excuse to spend time outside. I am sure we will talk a lot about things to do outside during the summer this season since it is definitely one of my favorite activities, but let’s just take the excitement one topic at a time. A lot of people are not so thrilled spending summer days outside (it is hot…I understand not everyone likes to be outside in such high temperatures). However, there is something to say about summer nights. When the sun goes down, and the temperature drops significantly, it is the perfect time to end the day outside. Sometimes summer nights are still warm, other times summer nights get a little chilly and you need to wear a sweatshirt with your shorts and flip flops. No matter what, summer nights outside are a great time. It is a time for the kids to catch fireflies and the adults to relax under the moonlight.
Just remember the following tips about making your summer night outside perfect:
1. Make sure to have some sort of bug repellent, such as the Glo Stick Insect Fly Trap. Being outside is great, but the bugs like it a lot too, so do what you can to keep them away.
2. Make sure to have some lights prepares, like the Solar Hand Crank Lantern. With more light, the longer you can stay outside and extend your summer night.
3. Have enough reclining camp chairs for everyone to have a comfortable place to sit, and then no one has to stand out of obligation.
