  1. HOORAY for summer (and Del’s!). I LOVE your slide pic. It’s so perfect- and the blur with the lights is totally THAT summer pic we all have of the carnivals from summers as a kid. I love love love it!

  2. Oh, Janie… I love your list and I love summer mornings, when you can hear kids’ laughing and the sounds of little running sneakers and bikes and skateboards through the OPEN windows! I love sidewalks and dogs sniffing and fluffy white clouds and red, reds of strawberries and watermelon and stripes on flags drifting in the warm breeze. I loved summer when you guys were kids… the first family at the pool each morning and watching you guys jump into the cold water on a hot day, like pancake batter on a griddle! I love the greens of trees and grass, too… and the flowers as the emerge and change and blossom and repeat the magic all summer long. I love cotton pjs and early sunrise and late sunset and the yellows and oranges and pinks and blues of it all. I love kids reading summer books and feeling and living the adventures because the pressure is off to get SO much done. I love our grapevine and summer porches and iced coffee and beer and lemonade! I guess I love summer, just like you! xoxox!

  3. Road trips in the country , buying fresh produce from the local farmers, pick your own berries and enjoy the great outdoors.
