Hold a tanning party in the back yard
July 20, 2009
Summer is here and has brought with it lazy weekend afternoons with the sun shining brightly in the sky.
So instead of hitting the tanning bed, why not call up some friends and have a simple tanning party in the backyard?
Bring out some comfortable lawn or beach chairs and don't forget to have sunscreen available to protect from the sun. Try not to spend too much time out there though, as the direct sunlight can be dangerous over a period of time.
Have a cooler nearby filled with water and maybe some health juice drinks (V8 splash may be a good choice). Consider having cheese and crackers, or some fruit salad as a tasty and refreshing treat while tanning.
If there is a window that overlooks the yard, put stereo speakers in the window for some music. Or use your computer speakers and hook up an MP3 player to it for more of a portable sound system. Just make sure your music player's battery is charged up.
Also provide some magazines for you and your guests to enjoy. Finally, don't forget to wear sunglasses sparingly, since you may not want tan lines on your face.
