Backyard Summer Essentials

Spring is here, but summer is right around the corner and I cannot wait for those warm temps.  All of the fun and cute stuff is just starting to roll into stores and if you wait until it is warmer, the cute stuff is gone by then! I’ve put together three collections of summer essentials so you can be ready when summer is here.


Ahhh, summer in the backyard. Sprinklers, blow up pools, grass stuck to little feet, fun towels as blankets, flip flops, and popsicles. Here are my top 10 backyard summer essentials:
