APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS!

I love spring and summer for the fabulous flowers and edible gardens people create, but when I read an article on BuzzFeed.com about “37 Ridiculously Awesome Things To Do In Your Backyard This Summer”…I couldn’t wait to share it! From a giant game of kick croquet using hoola-hoops and gigantic kickballs, to a huge game of family twister that involves nothing more than spray painting your grass with colorful circles, even using water balloons as piñatas to beat the heat at your next children’s party.

One of the coolest for Austenite’s – creating a garden teepee! What a special bonding time this could be with little souls spending an hour or two surrounded by burgeoning life in a “fort like” solitude with a great read, or enjoying a tea party with friends!? Do you remember building forts out of cardboard when you were young? Then having an uber cool she-shed might be right up your alley!

BACKYARD FUN

Creating your Backyard Paradise should be fun and never ending. Whether your backyard is on the side of a hill, or extends all the way to Lake Austin, your imagination is really the only limit you may have when it comes to relaxing and spending time with the ones you love under the stars in your special oasis! Finding activities that involve everyone together without phones, computers, or headphones might be a challenge…hopefully some of these ideas might inspire you to try a few new things this year!
