The temperature outside is quickly rising and it is time to break out the sunscreen.  Finally, you, your friends and your family can spend time outside.  Do you enjoy camping, the beach or just being outdoors?  There is so much you can do in the summer.

I enjoy many summertime activities like biking, camping and one of my favorite holidays, The Fourth of July.  As far back as I can remember, The Fourth of July was a time when you had cookouts, you went to the local carnival where you spent your weekly allowance trying to win that stuffed bear while enjoying some cotton candy.  You could barely wait to view the spectacular fireworks.

This is something that I now get to enjoy with my family and friends.  Every year we go to the Great Lakes Naval Base.  We bring our cooler of snacks and drinks, spread out a blanket and a couple of lawn chairs, throw the Frisbee around and then sit back and enjoy the entertainment.  The big moment comes when they start the fireworks.  They are amazing and although I’m not a kid anymore, I still sit there with my family in awe of the beautiful colors.

So whether I’m at the beach, in my backyard or enjoying The Fourth of July, I find all kinds of items at the Lakeside Collection to make these times even more enjoyable.  Check our collection of coolers starting at $3.95 and couple that with our collections of throws and you will be set.  You’ll probably want to sit down and our chairs start at a very low $6.95.

Soon you will be making great memories with your family that they will come to cherish as I do with mine!
