Summer Love

*This sand/water table was a great buy. Instant hit with A.

There are so many things to love about Summer. And it's fun making lists and thinking happy thoughts. Here are the first 20 things that come to mind when I think about what I love about Summer:

1. Playing outside
2. Pools and sandboxes
3. Ice-pops
4. Long days filled with warm sunlight
5. Afternoon rainstorms
6. Dinner on the grill
7. Fresh strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes, corn, green beans, etc etc....
8. Watering the garden
9. Walking in the grass with bare feet
10. Picnics and barbeques
11. Baseball games
12. Sitting on the front porch with K
13. Talking with neighbors in our yards
14. Visiting the farm
15. Vacations
16. The smell of freshly mowed grass
17. The sounds of little league from our back yard
18. Sleeping with the windows open
19. Restaurants with outdoor seating
20. Fireflies

What are your favorite things about Summer?

*Gotta love summertime for pools. All we need at this point is a few inches of water for lots of fun!

    I have to add softball, driving with the sun roof open, going for a run in the early morning, summer ziti (although that goes in the food category with a bunch of other things!), birthdays, traveling, family reunions, reading silly novels, and I know there are lots more...but I wanted to participate in your list!!

    summer ziti and fresh cut grass would go up top. Then reading books, lemonade, farmer's market food (much like your list), parties, the beach, summer dresses, black bean burgers and corn on the grill and cold cold beer.
