When you were a kid, there was nothing like summertime: no school for two months, water balloon fights, the classic Slip ‘N Slide, and frequent pool days. Just because you’re older now doesn’t mean you and your boo can’t enjoy some throwback fun! Follow this love advice to enjoy all the summer activities you reveled in as a child.

Water balloon fights are an excellent activity for a big group, so get your honey to grab his friends while you invite yours and initiate a water war on this weekend date idea. Pinterest has tons of ideas for planning an epic water fight, so all you need is a good-sized backyard and the will to clean up all the balloon scraps when you’re done!

Let your inner child come out to play when you follow this love advice and visit your neighborhood pool. Sunbathing is fun, but laying there in silence next to your partner isn’t as exciting as a splash fight or ordering ice cream cones from the snack bar. Indulge in all the things you would’ve enjoyed when you were younger, and you’ll both be overcome with giggles — which we all know is the way to bond. If you want to spend the entire day at the pool, pack a picnic, books, and water guns. You’ll never have a moment to be bored!
