Five Things I Love about Summer!

So, my cool friend Carrie over at Martin Manor Happenings has a post about her five favorite things about summer. She asked us to play along and I thought it would be fun so I'm joining in.

1. Sunshine. There's is nothing like blue skies and sunshine to me. It makes me happy, keeps me motivated and is just plain beautiful.
2. Flip flops. I love all kinds...even the cheap Old Navy ones. They are just easy to put on and go and came in real handy when I was at the airport and I had to take off my shoes. Plus, with them my feet can get a tan too!

3. Burgers on the grill! I hate to patty the meat but I love the finished product. With cheese please.
4. A relaxed schedule. With no school, we can stay up a little later, skip baths if we want, and the kids can stay in pj's if they want.
5. The pool. Now you knew this was coming. I love being at the pool. I love packing a lunch and just hanging out with the kiddies. I love sitting in the shallow ending soaking up the sun (getting a little darker). I love watching Jamison jump in from the side (I'm sure Caleb will be joining her with that this year). It's the best. **Above is a picture of the pool we go to.

Good list Kelli! I love all of those things about Summer too! This is our last week of school and I can't wait until next week. Sleeping later and time at the pool sound so good right now!

Wow, I so want to go to that pool with you! That is awesome...we will never see you again! haha!

I love Old Navy flip flops, too! they are cheap, but you can get every color!

Mmmm...burgers on the grill, my mouth is watering!

I love flip-flops, too! And the pool! I love this post! I may have to play along.

Christy said...

Wow - that is your neighborhood pool?! It totally puts ours to shame. Great list. Are those all your flip flop? And I thought I had a lot!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Do you have room for five more at your pool??? That looks like so much fun!!!
Flip-flops are my number one fav. about warm weather, too!!

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

P.S. How was your weekend??

Great list. I can't believe that you were able to narrow it down to five things. I totally agree with all of them. But our favorite thing about summer is relaxed schedules. We love to sleep in. This week I am hoping to go and buy a new suit and then it is off to the pool.
Have a great day!
