Welcome to the last few wonderful weeks of summer vacation. Labor Day is just around the corner it seems and then we all take that dive in to changing out homes and our routines for Fall, even if the weather is still warm.
I am fortunate each week to host the Home Matters Linky Party and get to visit so many talented and dedicated blogger’s post. This summer they have shared some wonderful summer activities and if you are looking for some ideas for the kids, a last minute vacation, or just a way to fill the hours at home, then check out the shared posts below.
If you are looking for some weekend DIY projects then Alex @ On Rockwood Lane shares some great ideas every week.
For those who like to take hikes, Dave and Jamie @ Photojeepers share some great outdoor adventure posts every week.
Dave and Jamie also shared Zion Hikes without the Shuttle and a list of National Parks to visit in July. But they have also shared great traveling tips like this one on Healthy Road Trip Food. Be sure to check out all of their posts on traveling.
Another great blogger who also shares travel tips is Lena @ Way 2 Good Life.
Later in this post I will also be sharing some of Lena’s posts for kid activities.
Considering a camping trip? Then you will want to check out Samantha @ One Pen Club’s post for the Beginner Camper.
And speaking of traveling, don’t forget the packing.
If you are traveling at all, be sure to check out Kendra’s post at Proverbs31Wife about packing an organized suitcase.
Traveling is on my mind because I will be celebrating my 30th Anniversary with a trip to Denver next week. One special blogger, Pat @ Mille Fiori Favorti, shares each week all about her life in Denver and some great places to visit in the area. You can believe I have been taking notes. Our trip may only be for 4 days but her post below is definitely one place that is on our agenda.
Pat also shared her post on needing reservations to the Rocky Mountain National Park which is very good to know if you plan to visit it this year.
Kids and the last days of summer!
Okay, so you may not be going anywhere on vacation before school starts, but you still need some ideas on how to keep those little people in your house entertained and occupied for a few more weeks. The bloggers below shared some great ideas.

I hope everyone continues to enjoy the last few days of summer whatever you decide to do before school starts and the beautiful Fall season is here.
