Damn!!! Ellie, everytime I click over and see those S'toon berries, it makes me miss summer even more!!!
Got me thinking. What is it about summer? So many people in the summer around here say they can't wait for snow in the winter. Me...I hate snow. I tolorate it now b/c I like to see my son go outside in it. We haven't been fortunate enough to see snow yet this year, but it is a cool 30 degrees out. Nic made me flash back...summer.
When I think summer, I can't wait to take my son to the waterpark. He loves the slides. I love eating outside with my family with the porch lights on and the smell of the grill going. I love sitting my pitcher outside with some tea and fresh mint so it will brew in the sun. I do love the beach but when it's not too hot out. I love playing fetch with my pups, going to the zoo, visiting the harbor in Baltimore and going shopping. I like the frequest get togethers with family. And the nice vacation to where ever every year. This year we will look forward to baby #2.
I remember summers as a kid. We would always go to the same beach for vacation and meet up with the rest of the family. That part was nice. But dad always had a new car because he always bought used cars. I remember one year driving to the beach in the Green Monster , that is what my sister and I used to call it. I don't even know what type of truck it was, but it was a gas guzzling beast. My parents would roll all the windows down and mess our hair b/c there was nothing like natural ac (when the car didn't have any). If you looked down to the floor, you could see the road moving under your feet b/c of the holes the truck had in the floor. To top it off our parents would make sure when ever a cute boy drove by to honk the horn and point to their mortified girls in the back..... Oh those summer days!
What is it about summer you miss?
