Summer Preparation: Preparing for Lazy Summer Days May 16 2014

Today I cleaned my house in preparation for Summer, its been amazing and sunny outside and is making me itch for lazy summer days.

Every summer I put the kids indoor toys up for the summer and we play outside.  This year I added downsizing their clothing to 3-5 pairs of shorts, 5 shirts, 2 pants, and a church outfit.

What do you do to prepare for summer or make summer more fun and less work?  I would love to hear your ideas.
