When you think back to your favorite summer memories, they probably involve being outside basking in the sunshine, running wild and free. But let’s be honest the struggle to avoid screen time is real - especially during summer break. If we think back to the best times we all had as kids it’s easy to come up with an epic summer bucket list that is sure to jumpstart some serious adventures.
We polled our team for their most cherished summer memories and came up with a short list below that has us itching to get outside and play. Catching fireflies, running through the sprinklers, and biking from sun-up to sundown all made the list but we’d love to hear from you!
