It’s no secret that I am a water person, and this time of year is the perfect excuse to go cool down at a water park! Every summer I know I have mentioned Rolling Hills Water Park, because I personally think that it’s Ann Arbor’s best-kept secret! Although I am not sure how much of a secret it is as it’s always busy!
Pesto Orzo Salad is a family favorite of ours, and actually the first recipe that I had ever created. I created this recipe over summer break when I was in high school. The behind the scenes story was that I was on the phone with my Mom and we were discussing what we should have for dinner, while doing so we went through a quick list of what we already had in our pantry.. Needless to say this salad is wonderful, I have been making it ever since as it instantly became a family favorite! I even made it during my semester in Italy!
I really enjoy summer, especially living here in Michigan. The weather is usually warm, but not very hot and the humid is literally just right. For most Michigander’s summer means a sigh of relief from the miserable long cold winters and that we can finally go outside and play!
Below is a list of my favorite activities and things to do when summer hits the North! Hopefully you can add these to your own summer fun either here or in your own town/city near you!
