Swimming in the lake and encountering a snorkeling sea monster named Boyd.Eating lots of ICE CREAM and getting messy.

More time with good friends Jen and Chris...
because they're not working in the summer.
Our husbands are shucking corn and tending the BBQ
so that we can have lots of 'together time'.

The glorious 4th of July!

Flowers in the window boxes.
Lots of time outside.
Not tanning anymore... but reading in the shade.

Flowers all over the place.
These are a welcome as you come in the front door.

And strawberries! On, in and over things.
And all the wonderful Farmer's markets abundant with fresh veggies and fruit.

I have to confess... my friend Chris made this cake, not me.

Just a quick list.
What is SUMMER to you?

Hi Joni, Your summer sounds really Yummers! We both work and we only have 1 or 2 weeks off, but Summer to me is going to France, to a house on a hill with a view and fresh bread in the morning and visiting lots of beautiful little towns and having drinks and gorgeous meals in the evening, coffee and a book on a terras and and being lazy and taking lots of wonderful photos and looking for postcards to send to all our family and friends and having a barbecue at the pool. The reality is far from it! LOL

Summer to me is spending time with my girls as they will sooner than I like be grown up and off on there own or being old enough to be with friends and not want to be around mom and dad much. Crocheting in the evening after they are put down and relaxing and spending time with hubby after he comes home from a long day at work. Or sitting around with a good book. It just depends one what I am in the mood for.

Summer is...
-The smell of bug spray and sun screen mixed with dried sweat left on me after huge hugs and kisses from the kiddos.
-flip flops by the door.
-swim towels and suits hanging on the shower rod.
-slowing down to take in every moment of sun.
-later nights.
-laughing, smiling, games and jokes.
-time at camp as a family.
-time to dream.
