Throwback Thursday: Get your summer games on!

We're deep into summer at this point: you've gotten some time outside, maybe gone for a bit of vaca, and perhaps even gotten the kids to camp. However, summer's a marathon, not a sprint, folks. You've got to be ready and prepared to keep the late afternoons and whimpers of boredom that might come in August at bay. So, what are some other things you can do to mix it up, enjoy the blazing hot summer days and mild evenings made for the outdoors? Bring the fun home - that's how! Turn your own backyard into a neighborhood spot to envy.

Last year, I explored some of America's favorite backyard pastimes and there are plenty of great ideas to arm yourselves and your family against the sneaky boredom of summer that might have started seeping in. Whether badminton is your game, you're thinking it might be time to dust-off the Slip 'n Slide or give Corntoss a try, sky's the limit.

Better yet, let us know what summer games and backyard activities you love and share them with us on our Facebook page!
