Ok…there should be lots of ideas here!  What does your family do every summer?  Grilling, going to the beach.  this catagory may cross over with the family vacations one…but hoping there are ones for just summer out there!  Fresh corn on the cob is a MUST in our family!!  Its a very special meal!

At least here winter means snow!  And generally quite a bit…for a long time.  So you have to have fun with it…snowmen, sledding, skating, skiing, snowshoes & snow angels……..or how about homemade icecream, or making snow candy by drizzling pure maple syrup over fresh snow!   Whats your familys favorite winter tradtion?


Finally spring!
