Are Your Kids' Wardrobes Ready For Summer Vacation?


If you're like my family, you try to plan a summer vacation for yourself and your kids each year. Even if it's just a quick weekend trip to the lake house, it's nice to spend a few days away from home and enjoy each other's company. If you're not sure where you'd like to take your kids this summer, here are a few ideas to get you thinking about the best family-friendly vacations you can enjoy, no matter what part of the country you call home.

Family Camping Trip

Camping has been a time-honored family tradition in my family. Even when I was young, I used to enjoy helping my dad set up our tent while we enjoyed a week of quiet relaxation in the woods. At Hartstrings, we have the clothes you need to make your upcoming camping trip perfect for your kids. If you're into that “rustic” look, you'll love our awesome collection of kids’ plaid shirts for both boys and girls. Remember to stock up on the longer sleeves too, because sometimes summer nights can get a little chilly. Even so, with the great deals at Hartstrings, you can't go wrong.

Amusement Parks

No matter where you live, there's bound to be an amusement park within a few hours of your home. If you have an infant at home, why not recruit Grandma to babysit while you steal away with the older kids for a weekend of rollercoasters, bumper cars and lots of cotton candy? You'll have a lot of fun enjoying some “older kid” attention for a few days. Besides, it's always a good idea to plan some special time with your older kids once in a while. A summer trip to an amusement park is a great way to do that.

Baseball Games

Along with the kids plaid shirts, tank tops and sandals you'll be picking up for this summer, be sure you pick up some sleeveless t-shirts for your boys to wear to baseball games with Dad. Perhaps you have a hometown team that you enjoy supporting, or maybe you live close to a stadium where a professional team plays. Either way, baseball is our national pastime, and summer just wouldn't be the same without it. The girls might even want to tag along!

If you hadn't planned your family's summer vacation yet, I hope I've given you some ideas to get you thinking about it. Don't forget to take some adorable photos of your little cuties in their kids’ plaid shirts or their beautiful sundresses for our ‘Show Your Summer Style Contest’. You could win a $100 shopping spree for your child in our online store.

No matter what you do this summer, it's bound to be the best one ever. So, have fun and enjoy each other as much as you can. And don't forget to bookmark Hartstrings so you can keep tabs on all of our incredible deals.
