Keep a cooler of delicious drinks handy to stay refreshed on a warm day.

You may be feeling a bit cooped up these days, so be sure to play some yard games that allow you to stretch your legs as well as concentrate. Cornhole and bocce make great choices, or set up outsized versions of your favorite board games that are best played outdoors.
With delicious eats, cool drinks, games and music, you can make the backyard the ideal place to “get away from it all” and enjoy an afternoon of family fun.
