How to Make Summer Epic for Kids

I love summer. I loved it as a kid and I continue to love it as an adult. Perhaps it's because some of my best memories are from summer  - camping trips, baseball games, spending days or weeks with my cousins, McDonald's ice cream cones - even the simplest summer activities have become unforgettable. I hope that I am able to provide my son with some amazing summer memories, too. So, of course, I have taken to Pinterest and other places on the internet to come up with some ideas on how to make this summer epic for kids.
