Some fun and creative ideas
to make a memory
this Holiday Week!
Have a camp out in your backyard,
(does anyone else remember throwing a quilt over a clothesline
and creating a tent for you and your camping buddies to sleep in?)
4 ripe bananas
1/3 cup chocolate chips
2 cups marshmallow
1. Slice stems off bananas & make a lengthwise
slit along the top of each banana.
2. Scoop out the bananas and mash with marshmallows.
3. Fill each banana skin with the mashed mixture;
sprinkle tops with chocolate chips.
5. Place boats over fire for about 10 minutes.
6. Dip graham crackers in warm gooey mixture.
Sleep out in your enclosed porch
(Don't you just love this picture from Country Home
this month? It reminds me of an enclosed porch of a
victorian house I lived in during college. In the summertime
we hung hammocks and slept out on the porch ~ it was wonderful!
and I wonder "why don't I do more things like that now?")
Make homemade ice cream
Go on a float trip
Go out in nature and take pictures!
Buy Sparklers and pass out to all the kids
on your street or in your life.
Go to a parade!
Fly a flag at your house .
Make a Flag Cake.
Eat a popsickle!
Watch a patriotic movie!
Do a random act of kindness
for someone not expecting it.
Make waffles and top them off
with blueberries, strawberries,
and whipped cream!
Please comment and let me know
any suggestions you might have
to add to the list,
I'd love to hear them!
Blessings to Nicole and Scotty!
