My favorite summertime activity is to sit on my outdoor swing and read. Here in the NW, we don't have much summer, so it's nice to soak up some sun, read a favorite book, and lounge on the swing with an ice cold tea.

Since it's so scorching hot here in Florida in the Summer I tend to stay indoors during the heat of the day if possible but in the early evenings just before dark I love to go for a nice bike ride with my husband and always have ready for our return a pitcher of Sweet Iced Tea.

My favorite thing to do in the summer is take my grandkids for ice cream and then sit and eat it while we talk about whatever is on their minds.

Thanks Ro. This is fun!

Tough one! I love that my family can break away from all our activities to go camping for a week's vacation...but I personally like to swing on my front porch swing...maybe nap, maybe read a book, maybe sip iced tea!

My favorite summer activity is hiking in the woods with my dog. I may have to cover myself with bug spray some days, but it is so beautiful and peaceful it is worth it!

My very favorite summer activity has always been going to the beach. Now that I am older and cannot stay out in the sun so much I have turned to more quiet activities such as sitting on my sunporch and watching the wildlife or reading a book or knitting. I also love to travel when we can. Next month we will be visiting the Grand Canyon and other canyons in the vicinity and end up in Las Vegas. Who knows? That may become my favorite summer activity, LOL.

What is your favorite summer-time activity?

My favorite summer-time activity is to take a big bowl of ice cream (chocolate ice cream with warm chocolate sauce & whipped cream) out to the patio with my laptop where I can enjoy the sundae while practicing the digi-scrapping that I've learned from ScrapGirls. It's a perfect "me" time activity. The only drawback is that I've yet to find 100% fat free ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. If I found those...well, life would just be perfect.

I get to take my DS back to my home state to see my family for a month or so each summer. So my favorite thing to do is get the whole family together at one time - there's 17 of us - to go boating/swimming/skiing/camping for a weekend.

My favorite summertime activity is going to the river or lake for some swimming and splashing with my kids and friends.

And wow, Ro, what a great way to get a lot of new people to post! So many new names here! :)

My favorite summertime activity is turtle watching. I live on the ocean and am fortunate enough to be in a place where many female sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. About two months after the eggs are laid, if you're lucky, you get to see the little hatchlings scamper into the ocean. Very exciting to see new life beginning, especially after the oil spill.

My favorite summertime activity is taking my grandson (age 2-1/2) to the zoo. We have a membership, so we can go for free and go often. We see all of the animals (as many as we can). He loves the Orangutans and the Penguins because he can walk up to the glass and they come right up to it. We have lunch, and get an Elephant Ear for dessert (love when he gets all messy). Then we take the zoo train that goes through the zoo and up the mountain to Washington Park. Makes for a great fun-filled day! And there is nothing better than a day spend with the grandson!


Oh, I'm thinking you live close to me! Thursdays were "zoo day" in the summer when my kids were little. Still have the pass. :)

I like to spend time with my family and friends OUTSIDE!! Especially enjoyable is a trip to the family ranch where we have no TV, telephone or newpaper, but plenty of sunshine, hiking, quiet time, memories and a creek that entertains for hours.

Fun game!!

My favorite summer activity is playing with my grandchildren in our backyard. They love coming to Grandma's house to play in the sandbox and the pool ... a treat for them, because they live in an apartment complex and their parents don't have room to set these things up for them. I love listening to their conversations with each other the best!

My favorite summer activity is to be inside with grandchildren (who are not in school in summer) and do paper crafts of some kind. Too hot in Houston to be outside!

My favorite activity is time with family. Whether it be a real vacation where we get to go someplace we've never been or if it's a stay at home vacation where we have fun together in our own little town, fun times with family top my list of favorites!

I've never had much luck winning contests but this one seems fun enough that it doesn't matter if I win the gift certificate or not. I'll still be a winner for having got to read everyone elses answers and share parts of their lives with me.

My favorite summer time activity is traveling. I especially like to go to historical places. I am raising my 14 year old grandson and everytime we take him someplace that involves history it not only makes memories but he learns. Every time he looks in his scrap book he remembers things about that day and the events that took place in history. Every time he thinks about that particualar place he recalls something that he learned at school about it so he keeps his mind fresh, alert and involved in the history of our country and our forefathers. We always try to mix a little fun spot along our trips just so he gets a break and those make great scrap book pages as well.

Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your day.

My favorite activity isn't really an activity at all ... I love to sit on the porch swing and do nothing (sometimes I'll work up enough energy to read a book)!

My favorite summer activity is gardening with my family. The time we spend out there watching the fruits and vegetables grow transforms me back to the days of my childhood. I love being out there pulling up weeds and watering all those wonderful plants. It is a wondrous place that takes away the stress of the day.

My favorite summer activity:
Dinner on the patio and a good bottle of wine, with all the family over and the grandkids roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Singing songs and telling jokes until dark!
