As a mom of two youngins with one on the way very soon, outdoor safety is a priority to me. I grew up in the foothills of California so I’m aware of what a rattlesnakes sounds like (and what to do when you come across one), and how to safely swim in moving water. Skinned knees and sun-kissed skin is important, but so is keeping your outdoor living space clean, clear and well organized in order to promote outdoor safety. Creating a safe space for your kids, grandkids, or adults who still act like kids :-) can be a fun way to enjoy your backyard during these hottest months.
Enjoy and apply sunscreen liberally!
