12 Things That You Only Do During the Summer

The summer season is finally here for many of us, and with higher temperatures come those special things that you can only do when it’s extremely hot outside. Whether you’re planning to eat foods that go well with hot weather (popsicles, fresh fruit, barbequed meat or veggies) for the entirety of the season, or live in your bathing suit as much as possible when the outside temperature climbs into the triple digits, a lot of things that you do during the summer would seem downright weird if you tried them at other times of the year. Here’s a gif-heavy list of some of the best things that you can only do in the summer.
