It isn't hard to see what makes this time of year so great. The air is crisp and the days are clear. You are making your famous ribs and knocking back a few cold ones. And all the while (and best of all) you are with your family and friends having a great time.

Sure, there is tons of great food to eat and a whole game to watch, but with the attention spans of flies, kids are not likely to settle down for a long game. You want to keep them off their phones and involved in some quality family time, but obviously don't want to include them in questionable games like beer pong and flip cup.
