Gardening

Gardening is not just for your mom! It can be fun, and it’s always so, so rewarding. Unless all your plants die. Then it’s a bit of a downer. But it’s all about the process of learning how to plant your plants and take care of your plants and then you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour in the form of a beautiful, colourful paradise in your own yard! Sure, it’s a lot of work at first, gettin’ down and dirty with all that soil in the hot sun, but in the end, it’s totally worth it having a beautiful garden next to that work you’ve had done by paving service Hamilton ON.

Jogging

Now I know what you’re saying that’s not a fun outdoor activity, that’s just exercise disguised as a fun outdoor activity. Well, yes and no. First, we’ll address the fact that yes, it is exercise. But that doesn’t have to be such a bad thing! Exercise is so good for you. Not only for your heart and your metabolism and your muscles and probs your brain and a ton of other stuff (I don’t know, Jim, I’m a blogger, dammit, not a doctor), but also for that summer bod we all want. You gotsta have that cardio. And for those of you thinking you’ll need emergency roadside assistance to pick you up after you’ve passed out trying to run, don’t worry, ’cause one of the great things about jogging is that you can totally dictate your own pace!

Swimming

This seems like an obvious one. You can take a party bus service to the beach, the lake, pool parties, lounge-beside-the-pool-parties that become pool parties as soon as some unwilling victim gets tossed in. It’s all fun and games until someone partially clothed and holding a beer gets thrown into the pool. Then it’s even better, obviously. At adult pool parties (and by that I just mean pool parties that happen to be for adults, not, like adult adult pool parties), sometimes it takes someone getting shoved in the water for people to actually use the pool properly. Sure, people are floating on floaty things, drinks in hand, chatting to the people on the floaty things next to them, but that’s not really swimming.

Cops and Robbers

This was one of my absolute favourite things to do when I was a kid. I just loved it. All my friends did. And it didn’t matter whose house we were at, or which residential roofers did the roof, we always found a good way to divide up the property in two pretty fair halves. Sometimes, depending on the house were were at, we would even include the whole neighbourhood, and then then garage of the house would be the jail. My family had (well, still has) a great property for it. Our house is out in a forest, and there’s tons of great hiding places in behind and under trees, and you can crouch behind the deck and basically disappear from the view of those on the other side of the deck. It was great.
