After living in an apartment for as long as I can remember, I am beyond thrilled to be moving into a house with an actual backyard this summer. Along with that come backyard barbecues, outdoorsy Christmas parties, and games. I’m going to stock my yard with all the best ways to spend a summer afternoon with the kids. Check out some of my must have games for the backyard or lawn for some kid-friendly outdoor fun.
