Can you believe that it’s June already?
It feels like just yesterday we were putting up the Christmas stockings and adding extra wood to the fireplace. There were snow drifts a plenty and the idea of a bright sunny day was a daydream that got us through meetings, homework, snowstorms, and, well, the time we all got to spend getting acquainted with our home/office walls. And then, almost as if out of nowhere, it’s June!
The temperature is rising, the sun is bright, and the kids are out to play. With summer vacation right around the corner, a lot of us are left with the biggest question of all: what do we do with the kids now that there’s no school?
How do we minimize screen time to maximize us time?
Hear me out. We’ve spent the better part of the last year and half stuck at home, experiencing life through our screens (be it TV, tablet, computer, or phone, a lot of our interactions were done via instant message and the most sunshine we got to see was sprouting through our windows). On those off chances we got to head out and explore and it was at incredible distances. This summer, we’re able to venture out a little more frequently and are able to see the world, and each other, through our collective new perspective.
So, how do we take advantage of the sunshine, and maximize the time we get to spend together? Well, it’s pretty simple if you ask me. After a spring that came roaring in like a lion up until, well, last week, and the craziness of the last year, it’s about time that we unplugged. Turned off the TV, stopped using that computer to keep track of the world, reserved tablets for reading under the stars, and only used those smart phones to take pictures of our journeys. It’s time that we get back to basics and get outside – and there’s no better place to do that than by the waterside on the banks of the Delaware River.
With over 405 miles of beautiful river to explore, it’s easy to spend a day (or several) getting lost in nature and exploring yourself. And, with a group of family or friends, you never know who might discover something truly unique. Plus, with the weather being so fantastic (after the raging grasp winter had on us for so long) it’s the perfect time get out and explore all that the Delaware has to offer.
Why not get started with a kayak trip? Or maybe take out a canoe? Here at Lander’s, we have plenty of options to help you unplug, and to spend more time together as a family.
With Father’s Day right around the corner, planning a river vacation is a great gift.
On top of being a great way to get out and about (and away from those pesky screens) a day on the water, or a night under the stars, makes the perfect gift for Father’s Day. Especially if Dad is a great lover of the outdoors! Our packages allow for quality time for the whole family, and also allow for some alone time. Either way, it’s a great gift that can lead to some pretty epic memories!
