Dog Days of Summer

July 25-27, 2014

Are the long summer days starting to wear on your kids? Keep them busy this weekend with a few days full of fun, summertime activities. Get them out of the heat, and treat them to a summer blockbuster you’ve all been dying to see. When the movie is over, head home and settle your kids down with a great, summer-themed activity or craft while you whip up a delicious meal to grill up outside. Once you’ve eaten, let your kids pick out a board game, and wind down the day with a little family-friendly competition.
