Summer overall


Some things I have loved about Summer

1. Sleeping in past 7! It has been so nice to stay up till 11 and sleep past 7.

2. On really hot days..just watching movies from Redbox....$1movies rock! Saved us from really expensive outings this summer.

3. The sound of summer...crickets, kids playing in the pool, laughter.

4. Watermelon, ice cream from the ice cream man, grilled hot dogs....

5. Fireworks, riding bikes, bad mitten in the back yard.

6. Family outings, cook outs, dinners out with friends sitting outside.

7. Sitting on the porch with Scott drinking coffee in the mornings.

8. Lemonade, lemon bars, sun tea.

9. Field Trips...to a different park to play and have picnics.

10. Vacations to the beach!

11. Our garden and its bounty!

We have had a great summer. And its still going on somewhat. Madison started school and Miller starts back Monday. So....we still have weekends to enjoy our favorite things about summer.
What are your favorite things about summer?

This whole post made me smile, Jen. Most of your faves are also my faves. Except I can't sleep in except on my holiday weeks. :v( LOL.

I love taking walks around the lake, picnics at the river bottom, sitting and watching and listening to sprinklers and lots more it would take a post to recount. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I have several favorites but one thing I am NOT liking now is the heat. It stays 85 in my office and I have central A/c, a window unit directly behind me and a fan blowing at my feet. ACK!

But you know what? Some people in this very town don't even have a fan much less A/C. Now I feel bad!

Still thinking how this year has raced past me. Little Package will be 3 in less than 2 months....cant stand it and I cant get enough of her. Thinking how much the orchard has grown this year....that the humming birds have hatched, grown and are coming less & less....summer is fading even tho it is hot as you know what! LOL! The grapes are getting ready....the last thing of summer.

I can't believe how fast this summer went. Sounds like you had some awesome family time.
