How do you use your Patio? Join the conversation and win a $25 Sears Gift Card. #SummerwithSears

Summer. It is time for fun in the sun, family bbq’s, and creating lots of memories. Your outdoor patio space sets the stage for all of these events.

You may remember last month I shared some pictures of our outdoor space.

This month I am going to share how we use our space. I love this space. It gives me a comfortable spot to sit and do some blog work while still being able to keep an eye on the kids while they run around.

It is the ideal spot for those family bbq’s and even just dinners outside. And there is plenty of room for when we have people over. No one ends up feeling cramped or crowded and their is still lots of space for the kids to run and play.

Now if you will excuse me, I have some kids to surprise.

These are just some of my favorite activities that my family enjoys on our patio. What activities do you and your family enjoy on your patio? Answer the question below and one of my readers will win a $25 Sears gift card!
