Create your own outdoor bed for laying out or snoozing. Great ideas at Centsational Girl. Throw a mosquito net over that umbrella and you have the perfect bed for those hot August nights.
I wonder if I could convince Adam to build us something like this for the backyard this summer... but it would need a cover. And I think I would fill it with just dirt and maybe we could enclose the sides with something cheap like plastic trellis and put a water table in there. Messy but super fun!
