How we stay cool and #SavorSummer

YAY! We are officially in our first week of Summer around here and we definitely do not want to be cooped up in the hot house! We love to spend as much time out in the water as we can!

Luckily we live in Condos where we have out own swimming pool, but our family has a beach pass to our local lake as well as ou own dock. We definitely love to be out in the water playing and keeping cool.

Finding time to spend together as a family means a lot to the kids and I. We love the simple time together having fun, giggling and splashing in water. I love that I don’t have to worry about stopping our family fun to leave what we are doing to go home to eat. I can pack a picnic lunch and take along our Dixie Ultra Plates and we can continue wit our water fun.


Which is why we are so excited for the second month of the  Dixie Ultra Savor Summer Sweepstakes, where all throughout the summer you will get the chances to win some pretty awesome prizes.

This month is about Water Play!  Submit your own photos of the water activities you and your family love most between June 15th and July 12th for a chance to win an inflatable family fun raft.

    I love Dixie Ultra Plates. I can’t count the times I’ve dropped a delicious plate of goodies because the flimsy paper plate broke.

    We use Dixie plates all summer long, too! We are at the beach often and I know when I use Dixie, the plate isn’t going to bend over and all the food fall to the ground!
