Summer Is Welcomed With Two Open Arms in Laurel

April 28, 2017

Believe it or not, summer is finally, totally, actually here! Which means the screen door that leads you to fun outdoor events, vacations, sunbathing and barbeques has flung wide open and is waiting for you to walk through. Yet with all of these amazing opportunities, deciding on exactly what you want to start with can really become overwhelming.

Fortunately, ROSS is here to help the residents of our apartments in Laurel get the summer fun started with one of these top three entertaining activities:

  1. Take a Dip in the Pool

    The perfect weekend activity for ROSS’ Laurel apartments is spending time at the sun-dabbled swimming pools and expansive decks. Just imagine waking up on a hot summer Saturday, gathering the kids and being able to walk to your pool; it certainly alleviates all of the hassle of travel!

  2. Make Homemade Popsicles

    A fun summer activity to get involved in with the kids is making your own homemade popsicles in your stylish, all utilities included kitchen (in select apartments). Either you can go for a light, fruity option and make Cocomelon Popsicles by blending together 2 cups of chopped watermelon and 1/3 cup of shredded coconut, then freezing them in popsicle molds for at least 4 hours; or go for a savory, decadent option and whip up a batch of Bananutella Fudgesicles by blending together 6 large ripe bananas and ½ a cup of Nutella, then freezing the mixture in popsicles molds for 3-4 hours. (Best option: make BOTH!)

  3. Go for a Long Walk Outside

    There’s nothing more relaxing than the inviting warmth of a summer evening, the kind of temperature that makes it hard to stay inside. So DON’T! Instead, DO any number of the following: grab a leash and take your dog for an evening walk (we can guarantee he/she will be excited to go outside your pet-friendly apartment); put the shoes on the kids and walk them over to the fun-filled children’s playground; or grab a loved one’s hand and go for a stroll around the beautifully landscaped grounds of the community. No matter which option you choose, going outside and welcoming the warm weather will be sure to put you in a great mood for weeks!

So, come on, everyone! Lose the wintertime gloomies and rejoice over the fact that the cold, bitter days are finally over. It’s time to embrace the warmth of summer with open arms by discovering a place that lets you do just that. Take a tour of ROSS’ Laurel, Maryland, apartment communities today!
