Sometimes it takes something silly to hit you upside the head to remind you of what really matters. In this case that thing is a log. In fact, it’s Log. (Sing it with me!)
The old adage Keep it Simple Stupid (KISS) applies to so many things, and toys is at the top of the list. So are playgrounds (go natural!), schedules, and heck — LIFE.
Let’s make a pledge to stop over-complicating things for ourselves and our children. Truly, it doesn’t need to be as difficult or exhausting as we make it. Pump the brakes people, it’s time to slow down.

Oh, and why not spice up your summer with a tasty adult popsicle or three?! Check out my friend Jerry James Stone’s recipe for Mango Fruit and Tequila Popsicles with Serrano. Noms! Don’t worry, he has lots of great non-boozey recipes, too.
When September comes and the kids head back to school and the summer light starts to fade, you will have such fond memories of time spent in the pursuit of play — and making the most of this gorgeous planet that we call home.
Trust me — this fact will make you happy. The end.
Don’t miss out. Mother Nature has something great waiting for you…

PS: And because I am a former camp counselor, I can’t help but play this clip from my beloved, Meatballs. And yes, as a matter of fact I am ready for the summer! Are you ?!
