Summer Forever! Baby Chick’s Guide to One of our Favorite Seasons

Oh, summertime. From the beach to the pool to the Fourth of July — it’s fairly easy to see why it’s one of our favorite seasons. Isn’t it? Come on, littles love summer. Mommies and daddies love summer. It’s basically a win-win. And we are all about making memories. Here are a few ways my little family plans to keep cool in the Texas heat, and make this the #sweetestsummerever!


1. Put on your swimsuits and spend an afternoon running through the sprinklers.

2. Host a Backyard BBQ.

3. Make lemonade: one batch for the kiddies and one for the adults!
