There's so much in the summertime to celebrate, isn't there? Memorial Day, graduations, Father's Day, 4th of July... we even have some summer birthdays in our family to add to that mix! Not to mention the many beautiful, sunny days that just get us all in the mood to get together and enjoy our family and friends. Our family calendar is pretty packed this summer, and I love it!

No large vacation for us this year, moving to a new house was eventful enough for us. But we're planning lots of day trips, playground visits, and spending time with family and friends this summer. When I asked the boys what special things they'd like to do this summer, they listed fishing, mini golf, and bowling. So I'll definitely be attempting to cross off those three on their summer bucket lists - I have to admit, they all sound like lots of fun to me, too!

We're all so relaxed in the summer, we tend to make the same types of foods at picnics and BBQs. It's hard to not get into a rut of bringing the same boring meats and salads to warm-weather parties. Not only that, but sometimes I just don't have the time to put together a full meal for a bunch of friends and kids coming over the house.

Summer pizza party to the rescue! I mean, is there anything easier than that?! A few frozen Red Baron pizzas, with a variety of topping options, and paired with my new favorite Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Salad and have your family come together over the timeless pizza!

    I love being able to grab our favorite Red Baron Classic 4 Cheese Pizza and Red Baron Classic Pepperoni Pizza during my normal grocery shopping trip to Walmart. It makes my life so much easier during the week and my family loves it! I'm all about the quality of the crust, not too thick or thin, but still crunchy. The Classic Crust is crunchy with airy, flaky layers that are perfect with the pizza flavors. Red Baron has been around for 40 years and our family can only hope they'll be around for 40 more with this awesome frozen pizza!
