a few of my favorite things about Summer

  • splashing at the pool with my kids
  • corn on the cob
  • snacking at the splash ground while my kids run around
  • berries
  • running errands before 11 am so it's still in the 90s and tolerable
  • watermelon
  • kids napping in the afternoon so staying in during the heat of the day is an easy choice
  • tomatoes
  • late bedtimes
  • peaches (preferably from a roadside stand or famers' market)
  • later wake-up times :)
  • plums
  • smelling chlorine in my childrens' hair while we snuggle before bed
  • planning an entire meal to be grilled
  • having all 3 kids home with me every day
