Popped corn on the stove or over a fire
Snail mail
Aprons
Clotheslines
Tent camping
Weber grills
Tonka trucks
Board games
Sun tea or homemade lemonade in glass jars

Porches are even becoming things of the past. We need to breath life, smiles and contentment into our busy days and enjoy our journey, our spouses and children.
