Our Messy and Fun Summer – Finish® Power & Free ™ #FinishMoms

finish moms I am a compensated member of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms

summer Finish dishwashingWe have made so many wonderful memories this summer and it all started early on when our girls celebrated their birthdays. Each of our girls have birthdays within weeks of each other so we always start our summers with celebrating!

We hit the beach plenty of times and packed up meals for some of those trips. There is nothing better than spending time with your friends and family and summers offer us plenty of time to make more memories together. With all those summer moments there were also plenty of messy moments.

From ice cream on a hot summer day, to smoothie making on a hot summer afternoon we have our fair share of messy and tasty moments. One of my favorite things about summer is eating meals outside and enjoying those messy moments together. It’s meals that bond and bring together families and that’s why I am so passionate about making those mealtimes special.
