The warm, lazy days of summer offer many opportunities to enjoy time with
the family. You don’t have to escape on a long, exotic vacation
to have memorable times, enjoy the outdoors, and have new experiences.
You can plan a variety of activities that provide fun, chances to learn
new things and a relaxing change from your routine. Take one month out
of summer before September arrives to explore the entertainments that
are available in your area.

information to everyone about what to expect. Here are some activities
that most families enjoy: · Day at the Beach · Hiking in
a nearby state park · Museum day · Water park day ·

Make A Fun Month Calendar
Sit down with the family and create a summer fun calendar that schedules
exciting events for each day of the week. In this way, you can ensure
that each member of the family has a voice in choosing a favorite activity,
and no one is left out of the process. Don’t forget to plan rest
periods in-between home events so you can cool off and relax before the
next stop. Make sure your air-conditioner is inspected and repaired to
avoid inconvenient breakdowns during hot weather.
Organize Your Activities
Make a list of items you will need for the daily activity. You may want
to plan a picnic lunch for a day at the beach or outdoor games. If you
need specialized equipment, make sure you have it on hand in preparation
for the activity. Check your wardrobe for appropriate swimsuits, hiking
shoes, hats, sunglasses, coolers for drinks and other necessary items.
And don’t forget the sunscreen. Make sure your home is fresh and
comfortable to come back to, with a thorough HVAC inspection from The
Plumbing Works in Reading, PA to ensure your family is comfortable with
