Join in on our fun summer contest to win your own personalized beach towels from Personalization Mall.

We’re heading into the final stretch of summer–where did the time go?

I remember when I was in grade school my mom would go out and buy a blank poster board and on our first official day of summer and we’d sit together and write down our individual and family goals for the summer. It would usually include reading three library books each (always my mom’s suggestion), going to the zoo, maybe a museum trip on a rainy day, a lemonade stand and of course going to the pool.

I remember my most challenging goal growing up was the summer I was determined to jump off the high dive at the pool. I had been nervous about it all year but I knew if I put it on the family “To-do” list that I would HAVE to finally conquer my fear or I’d never be able to show my face in my house or school again. It seemed like it was taking hours to climb the ladder to the diving board, and when I looked down it took everything in my body not to turn right back around and climb back down … but I just made myself take a leap and fell SLAP right into the water for the biggest splash of my life!

Show Us Your Splash Contest

It wouldn’t be summer without big splashes, which is why we started our Show Us Your Splash Contest on our Facebook Fan page. Have you seen it yet? We’ve gotten a great turnout so far!

All you have to do is visit our Facebook fan page and upload a picture of your kid’s best splash of the summer with a caption including their name and the name of their jumping technique or splash. Our Facebook fans are voting for the winner (so make sure you share the link on your Facebook wall so your family and friends can vote – you can vote for one entry a day), and whoever has the most votes by August 7th will win their very own personalized beach towel! Even if you don’t want to upload a picture, you can still go and check out the fun entries and vote for your favorite – we need your help to determine a winner!

While you add the Show Us Your Splash Contest to your summer to-do list, what else is on there?

What were some fun family things you crossed off the list and what things do you still have to do? Go ahead and vent here — we can all help each other out with ideas to still make the best of what’s left this summer!
