Summertime gatherings are more fun when you have plenty of activities to keep guests entertained. Games are a great option because they give everyone something to do together, even if they don’t know each other well. Plus, games are a great way to help shy people get in on the fun without too much pressure. It’s easy to incorporate games into your next barbecue or pool party. Just set them up at various spots around your yard and people will start to play! Here are a few of our favorite games that are just challenging enough to be fun for grownups, but just silly enough to be relaxing enjoyment.

For years, sun tanning was a summer ritual, and there was little thought about summer skin care. SPF (skin protection factor)? It wasn’t even on the radar screen. Slathering on baby oil and cocoa butter was a sure way to turn winter-white skin into a deep, dark tan. Fortunately, we’ve wised up to the hazards of subjecting our skin to all those rays.

Pajama Jeans from

If you’re like me, you could live in your sweat pants. In fact, the minute I get home from work, I slip into the most comfortable pants I can find in my closet—and usually I would rather not be seen in public.

Then I heard about Pajama Jeans. Could it be true? Do they feel like sleepwear but look like denim pants? Rachel Ray even featured these comfy jeans on her show. I had to find out for myself.

When I slipped them on for the first time, I was surprised how well they fit—they were super soft and comfortable compared to jeans, and they slipped on so easily. They have that worn-out feeling right from the start. On the first day in my new pajama jeans, I wore them the entire day and probably could have fallen asleep in them. My fiancé even gave them the thumbs up.

My favorite part? There are no zippers or buttons that get in your way, and they have a little boot-cut flair. And if an unannounced guest happens to show up at the door, I still look presentable. I hear they’re great for wearing on those long airplane trips, too.

I guess I’ll have to schedule a vacation soon…
