    Children Running on BeachSummer is hard to beat. We love the season for its barbecues, baseball, beach days and water sports, and also for its celebrations of family milestones including graduations and weddings. Some of us will get down to earth and create a vegetable garden. Others will take to the trails for hiking or biking. Still others will slap on some sunscreen, plop down in a backyard lounge chair, and enjoy an instant vacation.
