All Things Loved in June

I am copying this idea from another blog that I read by a lady named Dusty. Each month she reviews what she loved about the month and I love that idea so I'm joining in.

1. The pool. Technically it opened in May, but we didn't go until June. I have love each and every moment at that place. It is so relaxing to sit by the side and have my feet in the water. It's so much fun to watch Jamison go down the slide...her faces are priceless. I enjoy taking her to the deeper end and "teaching" her how to swim. I love to hear Caleb's laughter as he jumps from the side of the pool into the water. Great times!

2. Making my Summer Reading List (see below). I didn't read much at all over winter/spring and I'm excited to dive into some great books!

3. Staycation 2009! We all had just a great time on vacation, relaxing, being productive, going to the pool, grilling. I think it was the refresher that we all needed.

4. Pulling out the flip flops! I would wear these daily. They are so easy and so cute all at the same time. I even participated in a flip flop swap and should be getting my pair soon. How fun!

How was your June?

I, too, love our neighborhood pool! It's so great to be able to go there whenever we want! The kids would live there if I let them!
And I agree about the flip flops! I have fallen in love with Yellowbox flip flops. If you haven't seen them, you need to check them out. They are so comfortable, it's like walking on a cloud!

Hi Kelli!
Great list - what a good idea. I love all of the things you listed. We went to the pool yesterday - only our second time this year. It was fun! And your staycation sounded delightful!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

I wish I could say we've been enjoying our pool MORE! It's been so busy and now it's cooled down to the 70's! But August will be hot! I {heart} flip flops, too! I wish I could wear them in the winter too! Great list! I can't believe it's July already!

I'd love to have a neighborhood pool - what a great way to spend the day. Swimming, popsicles, flip flops. Hope you have a great 4th, Kelli~ :)

This is such a great idea. You know me I totally love to reflect on the blessing in our lives. We are also totally excited about the pool opening and pulling out the flip flops.
Great list and have a great Wednesday!

What a great idea! It is so hot already (102 today) that we are trying to stay indoors as much as possible. But the pool does feel great when it's that hot outside!

So glad you had a great June! Here's to an even better July!
