Remember a few weeks ago I showed you all my deck and how I created my own little backyard summer oasis. As much as I love it, there is one deck that I think I’ve spent more of my life on and would rather be! It’s my parents’ ocean view deck. With sparkling water and blue sky views like this, do you blame me?
So many fond memories have been made on this deck. Each holiday, my entire family along with extended family and friends would gather for big cookouts and beach parties. My mother has the deck lined with tables, rockers, and white wicker chairs with comfy cushions. Big urns of flowers are spaced out around it and a hammock hangs beckoning you to an afternoon nap.
We have so many summer birthdays in our family that the kids all choose to have beachy-birthday parties. In the evenings all the women of the family gather on the deck, and grab a rocking chair and a drink, and chit-chat while the sun sets and the kids play below on the beach with their daddies. It’s a relaxing time for sure. And best of all each time I’m there, sweet memories of my dad, who passed a few years ago, drift back to mind. It’s a special place.
These are just some of my favorite activities that my family enjoys on the deck. What activities do you and your family enjoy on your deck or patio? Answer the question below and one of my readers will win a $25 Sears gift card!
