AHHHH, SUMMER. Time for backyard pool parties and family vacations. Time for kids to run after the ice cream truck when the telltale sound of its music turns onto your street to secure the perfect sweet treat to beat the heat. For the loud explosion of fireworks on the Fourth of July, the shriveled fingertips that signify too much time in the pool, and the soothing feeling of aloe vera on that patch of skin that always seems to turn red, no matter how much sunscreen you slather on. If you’re looking for ways to fill your long summer days, we at Brentwood Lifestyle have some suggestions! We’ve got activities to keep you, your kids and even your pets occupied. Check out our list of the best patios, rooftops, beer gardens and other outdoor spaces to hit up when the kids head off to camp. If you’re looking to stick closer to home, we show you some great outdoor spaces in which to entertain. Maybe you’ll pick up a few ideas to spruce up your own outdoor living area. We also show you some easy treats, yard games and summer

Sweet Success SUGAR DROP BAKERY IS A REAL TREAT ARTICLE WILLIAM HARWOOD PHOTOGRAPHY JAMES JORDAN PHOTOGRAPHY

STEP INSIDE THE NEW SUGAR DROP AND ENJOY THE SCENT OF FRESH CAKES AND COOKIES, SWEET TREATS AND SUGARY SURPRISES. While you’re there, meet Sugar Drop’s Brooke O’Dell, an expert baker and award-winning cake decorator. Along with an army of friends, Brooke transformed the old Sugar Drop — a rather fusty cake supply and wedding dress store – into Brentwood’s beautiful boutique bakery, a place not only to order delicious desserts for your private party (Sugar Drop baked for 28 events in its first four months alone), but a place to decorate your own creations. “We call it our Sugar Drop Event Space,” Brooke says, referring to the large table for parties of 8-12. “The young and young at heart have fun with cake and cupcake decorating.”   Monday and Wednesday afternoons feature cake and cooking classes through the end of July. There’s also culinary camp for kids. For four days, campers enjoy popcorn and cotton candy cocktails while learning to sculpt fondant and pipe out shapes with a buttercream bag.     “I love all our events,” Brooke confides, “but my favorite is Stop, Drop, Decorate.” This is a do-it-yourself cake decorating invitation for Tuesdays and Fridays where, for only $35, participants receive everything they need: a freshly baked cake, a bag of buttercream, a tub of fondant, and the tools and sprinkles to bring their edible art to life. So stop by to say hi to Brooke and maybe pick up an almond cookie bar or two. You will be glad you did! 7020 Church St. E, Brentwood, Tennessee, 629.202.6949, SugarDrop.com

It takes a village — a Peruvian one, to be exact — to provide the perfect place to view the Andean bear. Nashville Zoo’s newest exhibit, Exhibition Peru: Trek for the Andean Bear, opened in March and features three Andean bears, a species whose native range stretches from Venezuela to Bolivia. Other animals present in this exhibit include the white-blotched river stingray and the southern pudu, a diminutive deer species that measures just 14 to 17 inches in height at the shoulder. The exhibit recreates the look and feel of an indigenous Peruvian village complete with a guinea pig pen and provides several unobstructed viewing points of the bears, including one from below the waterline of their pool. The ladies’ room even features a view of the cotton-top tamarin, an endangered South American primate.

NASHVILLE ZOO

(CON TI N U ED)

While native to the forests of southeast Asia, the beautiful clouded leopard is a species often associated with the Nashville Zoo. This is because the Nashville Zoo is a recognized world leader in the conservation of this vulnerable species. From field research to captive breeding programs — 31 cubs have been born in 18 litters in Music City since 2009 — Nashville Zoo helps ensure the clouded leopards’ survival. It isn’t cheap. Each cub must be raised by hand, a technique that prevents parental predation and habituates each Photo by Christian Sperka

The Nashville Zoo is a perfect place to experience other species in their amazing complexity. But if the sight of giraffes raising their heads high in the sky or of spider monkeys swinging with their prehensile tails from the limbs of trees makes you a bit, well... jealous, then thank your own capacity for human intelligence to be able to construct cool stuff like the Soaring Eagle Zip Line. This experience takes you and a friend over the tops of the trees — 110 feet up, high enough to see the downtown skyline — before letting you go to swoosh safely back to the ground at a brisk 28 miles per hour. Take that, giraffes!

Detached kitchens kept homes as cool as possible and lowered the risk of fire. Sleeping porches maximized cooling breezes and offered some respite on hot and muggy nights. Then along came air conditioning and many folks forgot how to live well in their own backyards. Thankfully, people are once again discovering the possibilities of this special space. From a quiet place to reflect to a lavish place to entertain, your backyard invites you
