When it comes to entertaining outdoors, there's no place quite like your very own backyard. Many families enjoy the warm summer weather by spending as much time outside as possible, and one way of doing that is by making it a fun place to be.
Get Out Your Grill
The smell of a freshly grilled hot dog or hamburger… the unmistakable taste of a meal that's been prepared outdoors… the excitement of getting together with family and friends for a barbecue… these are all things that you are sure to enjoy and, if you really want to get things cooking, you will get out your grill and cook up something that your entire family will love.
A cookout is a fantastic idea for summer entertainment, which means it is perfect for both small and large groups. Whether you prefer a quiet dinner with your family or you want to make your outdoor grilling adventure into a party by inviting your friends from the neighborhood, outdoor grilling is a fun way to make use of the summer heat.
Host A Pool Party
If you have a pool in your backyard, there's no better time than summer to put it to use. When the sun comes out and the temperature heats up, a pool party is a perfect way to spend the day cooling down. Before you start picking out your swimsuit, make sure that the pool is properly cleaned and ready for guests. In addition, make sure that there are flotation units for those who need a little help in the water and towels for everyone to dry off when they step out.
Hosting a pool party also means having something to eat and drink for your guests. Whether you've planned lunch or just a light snack for everyone, make sure that you have something on hand to curb those cravings. If you're inviting children over to a pool party for the youngsters, make sure that you have their parents' permission beforehand.
Believe it or not, many homeowners enjoy setting up a backyard sporting event and inviting everyone to join in. Whether it's volleyball, horseshoes or just a friendly game of basketball, there's no better court than home court. If you plan to create a sporty atmosphere, make sure that you have plenty of water on hand for everyone to drink. It's also important to refrain from playing when the sun is at its peak, which is typically in the early to mid-afternoon hours. Instead, wait until it cools down before heating up your backyard with some friendly sporting competition.

"Tyler was a huge help the whole time. He showed up to every meeting and fought for us when the builders of our house didn't have everything right. He stayed in contact and always easy to get a hold of.”
-Ashlee & Nate
"From the first day that we sat down with Tyler to sell our house, we knew that he was exactly the Real Estate agent that was going to get the job done for us. He answered every question, every fear and every issue we could think of professionally, efficiently and with confidence. This confidence helped us throughout the entire process. We had so many questions and concerns throughout this time yet Tyler never left us wondering. Tyler communicated and shared with us each aspect of the proceeding as it went along. We trusted in Tyler to not only quickly sell our large property but that he truly had our best interest in all these dealings. We were not disappointed. His professionalism, his positive attitude, his availability and his knowledge in his business allowed our property to sell to new owners in a much shorter time period then we thought possible. His communication skills with us are something that all agents should learn when dealing with the public. Tyler made a very stressful period extremely easy and comfortable for us. Thank you Tyler for your time, your skills and for making sure we were treated with the upmost respect. We look forward to working again with you in the future.”
"Tyler was very helpful in finding us our first house to flip. He was very willing to show us houses even in the rain. He was with us every step of the way and even came to the signing. Would highly recommend him if you are looking for a house.”
"If you are looking for a dependable and effective real estate agent, we would highly recommend Tyler Minton! He has handled our transaction with highest respect to our financial goals and our wish list for a new home. He is a good communicator, personable and assertive during negotiations. He is very proactive in selling our current home and is as honest as we could ask for. We have loved working with him and will do so again when the time comes!"
-Camilla & Casey
"Working with Tyler to find the perfect home for me was a great experience, he helped set my expectations regarding prices and neighborhood needs. Being a first time home buyer was intimidating at first but Tyler's patient approach gave me time to make a confident and informed decision. His timeliness in handling my questions and paperwork was also top notch and very accommodating. I highly recommend Tyler to anyone looking to purchase a home.”
"Tyler has been amazing with us during our home buying adventure. He was always helpful with all our questions (which were a lot!) He was right by our side through the process. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.”
