Summer can't come soon enough

I love this time of the year. The snow is gone. The sun is shinning later in the evening. Even though it's only 50 degrees, we feel like it's summertime. After the big chill for the past 5 months, 50 is a welcomed change.

I love watching the sun set in the afternoon sky. The anticipation of warm summer days is almost too much to handle. I can not wait for the day I can sit on my back patio with a cold glass of iced tea and a good book.

Listening to Simon run around, playing all of his goofy pretend games. Driving in his car to work, fighting off bad guys with sticks, tossing the dogs their toys...summer can't come soon enough for any of us. Alex spending all his time at the city pool, visiting his buddies in the neighborhood, driving us all crazy...summer can't come soon enough.

Camping is our favorite family activity. Our poor pop-up camper has been sitting so lonely like in the back corner of the yard, we can't wait until a nicer weekend so we can set it up and air it out after it's winter hibernation. The boys and I will undoubtedly spend that weekend sleeping in the camper, sprawled out wrapped up in our blankies.

Summer can't come soon enough.
