Fun family summer activities can be a challenge to find and we already know being a parent is always challenging. Because summertime brings a whole new set of obstacles that are difficult to overcome. Above all, there’s the heat, the bugs, the cuts, the scrapes, and the inevitable “Mom or Dad I’m bored” heard by every parent at least once over the summer.
