Welcome to Chase-ing the Dream! I hope you feel like you're settling into my living room for a cup of coffee and some chats. I'm Jennifer, a wife, a mom, a teacher, a triathlete and my boys biggest sports fan. I'll share stories of our life, crafts I enjoy, books I've read and everything in between. Join me - I love comments and try to respond to every one posted.

Every year my in-laws initiate the boys into summer with a surprise water fight. They try really hard to surprise the boys, even though it's a tradition, so the boys are never quite sure when it's coming.
This year the initiation coincided with a party we were having to watch an arena football game, so all the boys grandparents were on hand to douse them with water.
Buckets of water, squirters and water balloons are strategically placed around the backyard to it's easy to reload.
All in all the water fight lasts about 15 minutes, but the memories and the tradition, last forever!
What traditions mark the beginning of summer for your family?
