Shea Homes® Wants You to Be Safe Around Water

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 19, 2017

Swim SafetyThe summer heat is beginning to set in here in Arizona, and if your family is like most, your kids (and perhaps a host of their friends) are in and out of the pool all day. At Shea Homes we are passionate about caring for our customers, and we want to take a minute to offer a refresher on water safety as we enter the hotter months.

According to the American Red Cross, home pools are the most common drowning site for children ages one to four years old.  Because of this real danger, most Arizona cities require some form of barrier around your pool. However, as a parent or neighbor, you are the most valuable protection for children who spend time in and around your pool.

Here are some suggestions on how to keep the pool fun and safe this summer:

4 Fun, Inexpensive Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 12, 2017

 

The key to Mom’s heart isn’t always a pricey gift. More often than not, there are other, thoughtful ways we can honor our Moms that they will cherish forever. Here are a few tips and ideas to get you started.

Before you start, figure out what makes your mom feel special and loved. A good place to start, is to think about how she likes to celebrate, encourage and show you love.
Mother's Day Brunch1.) Create a homemade brunch for her to wake up to complete with some of her favorite things – including a personalize color scheme and her absolute favorite breakfast treats! Make it fancy with a tablecloth, flowers, plates, napkins and glasses full of her favorite beverage. Voila! Simple, cheap, beautiful and thoughtful!

Family Outing2.) Take the whole family on an outing whether it’s a hike, a day at the pool, a picnic at the park or a day trip to the her favorite nearby destination, these activities bring the family together and result in wonderful, lasting memories. Again, think about your mom’s favorite things to do & what makes her feel loved.

Stay Home3.) Stay at home for the day and create fun Mother’s Day traditions. Find some quick and easy baking recipes that you can do with your mom or wife and enjoy later! You can even make the day competitive by playing outdoor sports and indoor games! Pick up a cheap badminton or croquet set to set up in your backyard and get the energy and competition flowing outside. Or dig up those old board games, build a fort and create a new Mother’s Day tradition.

Homemade Gifts4.) Make homemade gifts for mom with the little ones. These are the gifts that mean the most to her. Get some finger-paint at your local craft store with a pack of cardstock and make a collage of handprints from everyone in the family. Another idea is to grab ingredients from her favorite dessert (i.e. cookies or scones) and layer each ingredient, one on top of the other, in a mason jar. Decorate the jar with a piece of patterned cloth over the lid and tie it with ribbon. Bake the dessert on Mother’s Day for fun bonding time and a delicious treat. Better yet, send mom out on a fun trip by herself or with a close friend – could be to the movies, for a manicure/pedicure or another one of her favorite activities – and surprise her with a clean home & a freshly made meal when she returns. Add in homemade cards from everyone in the family for an extra special touch.

Say thanks to mom this weekend and tune in to our Shea Homes blogFacebook, and Twitter for Father’s Day ideas. It’s just around the corner!
