i cannot explain how happy i am that summer is finally here. we had such long, cold, snowy spring and i was beginning to feel like it would never be warm enough for flip flops or dinners outside. i think i was completely spoiled by last years spring, which came so early. anyway, now that it's here i'm trying to enjoy it before fall comes too quickly. it always feels like summer is the shortest season of the year.
we've been enjoying popsicles, eating all of our snacks outside on the front porch, trips to the playground, and hot, sweaty naps.
we're ready for the fourth, although i have no idea what we'll be doing. i may have to make a blueberry pie because looking at that one makes me hungry.
avery's been playing with her water table almost every day and we've been walking a lot and taking advantage of cool parks.
we had the perfect beach day when we were back east, although it made me wish we were close enough to come every weekend. we played outside in the rain and finally broke in our fire pit one night after avery went to bed.
