I've been dating my girlfriend for 3 months now and things are going well. We like each other, and both of our friends like each other. Any suggestions from you guys to keep this thing going at least another 3 months? I've never dated anyone this long before so it has been new territory from the get go

Without knowing either of you or the details of your relationship, generally speaking you should let the relationship grow naturally isntead of trying to force it. That said, it is important to put some pressure on the "boundary," to prevent the relationship experience from stagnating. Let the dating experience slowly expand to fill an afternon and evening, a day, a weekend, a short vacation. Don't resist the urge to step up the relationship that way. If you WANT to do it, then do it. But don't push either. Don't do something because you feel like you SHOULD do it even though you're not comfortable with it.
As for more specific advice ,if she hasn't really met your family yet and you are comfortable putting them together, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are nice casual outdoor holidays for many families in the US that lend themselves to giving your partner a chance to bond with your family and vice versa without actually sending the message that you're bringing her INTO the family.
