kid-Friendly Summer Backyard Essentials

Let’s be honest – summer time is best spent outdoors, isn’t it? And here in Sonoma we have plenty of warm days, which means we’re spending a lot of time in the great outdoors. But while we often like to hit local spots around town, our go-to hangout is our very own backyard. This season, I picked up some super-fun (and entertaining!) backyard essentials to make this summer better than ever.

Read on for my go-to backyard essentials. Hint: they’re so fun, your kiddos will ditch their iPads for good!
