BISMARCK, ND (KXNET) Summer parenting can sometimes be challenging, but also when some of the best memories are made. Activities and seemingly running kids around nonstop can be tiring. Vacations and enjoying the outdoors are where the fun is to be had.

“We’ve been going to the lake a lot and that’s been fun,” said Sarah Kolberg. “They (kids) spend a lot of time at grandma’s house.”

“We spend so much time outside, whether it’s going for a walk, going to the park, or hanging out at home in the backyard,” added April Wahl. “We try to do a lot of family trips, even if it’s an hour away.”

Embracing the summer, extra time with the kids, and the fun that can be had will only bring joy to parenting and raising a family.
