So I thought I would share a few of my summer favorites with you…
1. Sunscreen. I love the smell of sunscreen and I love the smell of my kids when they have sunscreen on. Sunscreen just smells of summer for me. And freshly mowed grass. That too.

5. Ice Cream and Hot Dog Stands. Ice Cream is not necessarily a favorite…but I love stopping at Ice Cream stands and Hot Dog stands in the summer. I just think that is what you should consume. Last year, we were a bit better about doing this - searching them out and driving out to them and eating. This year has been a bust so far. But…there is still time!

6. Fun Activities. Vacation Bible School, crafts, going to the parks…any kind of activity that you can do on a whim (because it’s summer) I love to do. One day last week, we had “Activity Day”. And today, we made slime. Fun.

This is a happy place for my boys
8. Blueberries. I love to go pick blueberries. I love to eat blueberries. I love to bake with blueberries.
5 pounds I picked this weekend, plus 2 huge zucchini’s from a friends garden.
Those are just a few things I love about summer!!!
What about you??
