5 Things I Love About Summer!

  1.  Babyface's birthday! Of course I love Babyface's birthday. We told him he could have anything he wanted for dinner and he chose Mickey Mouse chocolate chip pancakes from the Silver Diner.  He was bouncing off the walls from the excitement of his birthday and the gallon of chocolate chips in his pancakes.  
  2. Longer mornings for me! I'm an early riser and love having sunshine in the morning.  (In the winter I often feel like I'm getting up in the middle of the night since it's pitch black at 6AM, so much so that I use this alarm clock that wakes me gently with light.)  If I want any time to myself (and you know I do), the only way I get it is to wake up earlier than everyone else.  I usually exercise, read books, blog, or work on projects. 
  3. Summer fruit! Oh, how I love fresh peaches, watermelon, cherries, grapes and everything sweet from the garden! My Heart's Desire was only half joking when he said he was going to buy a second fridge just for all the cut up watermelon.  Babyface likes watermelon as much as I do so it doesn't stay around too long. 
  4. Vacations and day trips! Babyface and I went to Colorado for a family visit and had a great time at the end of June.  We also celebrated Babyface's birthday early, which was nice.   My family also has gone to some smaller towns in Virginia for barbeque (My Heart's Desire's favorite) and fun (in that order).  We've also got some more local activities to do on our summer fun board.  I also planned my first staycation in ages, will post about that at the end of the month.
  5. Denver Botanical Gardens
  6. Fall is coming! Fall is my favorite season and I'm looking forward to it!  And this fall Babyface is starting public school.  It's a whole new world.
