We are at the end of August, which means school is back in session and summer is coming to a close. However, we still technically have until September 22nd until the first day of fall and let me tell you, here in Texas, I’m sure it will still feel like summer way past that day. Now that we have weekends back again and Kevin gets off of work a little earlier, we can really celebrate the end of summer and check a few things off our end of summer bucket list. Here a few fun things on our list and a few that I think just might be fun:
We will be taking advantage of having a lake night every chance we get! We love hanging out at Kevin’s parents lake house and Brooke is addicted to the boat and tube. She gets so excited. It is just really relaxing to go for a ride on the jet ski’s or even just sit on the back porch and have some JaM Cabernet. Kevin and I both grew up on the lake a lot so it is very nice to be back home.
We also enjoy backyard BBQs at our parents house. Sitting on my parents back porch is one of our favorite things to do. Grab the bbq and the Butter! Wait… not that kind of butter… I’m talking about JaM Cellars wine. JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. If you’re looking for a wine that melts in your mouth and is creamy-vicious then “Everything’s Better with Butter!” Grab a Butter Chardonnay. But, if you are looking for a luscious, berry-licious taste, This Cab is my JaM! It is an easy-to-love Cabernet that is all about the fruit (blackberries, black plums, black currant, cassis and more) harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of great Californian winemaking.
Water Gun Fight
Looking for family fun to close out summer? Try a backyard water gun fight. As soon as you get home, have the water guns filled up at the door and start an all out war. You can end the game with a fun treat like ice cream on the back porch. This could be a fantastic back to school tradition as well!
Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Date night time! Some of our favorite dates are going to sporting events so hit up your local teams games. We love Astros games, but if you don’t have a professional team, think high school even. Its all about enjoying a good game and having fun. At one of our stadiums in town, you can sit on a hill and bring your own Butter! (aka Butter Chardonnay that is!)
Summer, SLOW DOWN! We still have lots to do in this sun season! The good news, there is still planting of time to soak in the last day os summer. And the best news? You can grab your favorite JaM wine for under $20 and in a store right near you.
