Summer fun does not have to be expensive or elaborate. You don’t even need to leave your back yard! Pitch a tent and sleep outside. Kids of all ages love camping out and it becomes a club house of sorts. You can crash with them or let them sleep on their own. My boys have have a lantern they keep on low during the night. I love seeing the tent glow from my kitchen windows.
Summer in Seattle is the best 3+ months of the year. This summer is already shaping up to be sunny, hot, and awesome. With active boys and beautiful weather, it is essential to be outside and keep them busy. Searching out fun is a difficult job, but someone has to do it! How about 18 holes of mini golf? Real greens, sand traps, and scorecards.
The Rusty Putter at The Golf Club at Newcastle is an amazing destination for a little fun. In about an hour, you can golf all 18 holes. The views of Seattle, Lake Washington, and Bellevue are breathtaking. Grab a drink at the grill after your round and call it a day.
On a side note, Newcastle is also a perfect spot for date night. Grab a drink from the bar, head out to the putting green, and unwind on a warm summer’s night.
I will be featuring fun summer ideas over the next couple of months. If you have a great idea, leave a comment below or send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
