Let’s play a little word association. Blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, k? Ready:
Did you say Robin? Of course you did, me too! Let’s do another:
If you started singing “Let it go” we need to chat. Preferably over a daiquiri…which is obviously the word that SHOULD have come to mind. After all, we’re adults, and this summer thing can get a little rough, if we’re being honest. Sure, it starts out great. We’re gonna make homemade, healthy, organic (duh) popsicles, serve them snacks contorted into witty, entertaining shapes, like a string cheese and ham elephant, or fruit kabob caterpillars like we saw on Pinterest. Each day we will have scheduled play time at the park…and a nature walk. That will be followed by an hour of reading and math to keep those eager brains sharp. We’ll take educational outings to the museum, and plan out fun activities at home like obstacle courses and scavenger hunts. Until about Fourth of July. Then, we are just plain TIRED.
Don’t get me wrong, I adore hosting Camp Mommy in the summer. But those days can get loooooonnnnng. And at the end of them, I will have earned fruity drinks. Yes, that was plural. And I’m not talking a frozen Shirley Temple. I’m talking frozen alcoholic drinks. I’m not a heavy pourer, but there is something satisfying about having an adult beverage after a long summer day. Having something that you can legitimately say “NO” to sharing.

And my first frozen drink of the summer usually sparks my excitement to start the annual summer entertaining schedule. I’m a summer entertainer ONLY. Why? Because it happens OUTDOORS. And that means I don’t have to clean up crumbs and such. #Score.
This is our outdoor space –
We ❤️ spending time out there. See that ping pong table? That doubles as our dinner table in the summers. If you’re in the market for an outdoor table, consider one! I’ve included the source for ours below, along with a bunch of my current favorite outdoor entertaining items, from melamine dinnerware I’ve been eyeing, to our beloved outdoor pillows and outdoor potting bench turned bar cart!
And now, let’s bring on the frozen alcoholic drinks! I hope you find some fun, fruity drinks that you’ll love this summer! And hang in there mommies and daddies, fall will be here it before we know. Then we’ll be sad. But only sad with a lower case “s” 😉
