Summer is Here


I can not believe that today is the first day of summer. It is amazing how quickly time flies. Since, today is the first day of summer I thought I would share some of my favorite summer memories.


Summer memories as a child


~ catching fireflies at night

~ my mom taking us on a bike ride/picnic in the country. She would make us cucumber sandwiches (she is British).

~ all the cool fireworks you can get in Indiana. The real sparkles and not the cheesy lame ones you have here in CA.

~ riding my bike to the library and checking as many books as I could and then going home and laying on a blanket in the shade and reading all day.

~ the awesome thunderstorms we would get. Sigh... I do miss those.


California Memories


~ Bonfires at the beach

~ Driving my little old Cabriolet convertible that I used to own.

~ The hubby rigging up an outdoor movie experience with the projector and watching the old Disney movie Summer Magic on blankets and signing along to the music.

~ Walking to Dairy Queen after bible study and getting ice cream.

~ Watching Disneyland's fireworks show on a hot summer evening.



What is one of your favorite memories of summer?

I love summer for BBQs and cocktails with family, and the LA County Fair! :)

I loved watching Summer Magic in the backyard...that was so much fun, and the cool, summer night air felt amazing that night. Sigh. I would like to do that again!
