Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

Aaahhh, summer...

swimming, lots of swimming

corn on the cob with extra butter and salt

grilled peaches

my dad's homemade ice cream

Chad's homemade peach sorbet

waiting for the bats to come out at night

and giggling when they swoop too close

lightning bugs, grasshoppers, butterflies and fat hairy bumblebees

the arrival of coneflowers and lilies

will there be any fawns in the side yard this year? YES, two fawns again!

oohing and aahing each time we see the doe and fawns

miniature golf

wandering around a zoo, either our local AWESOME zoo,

St. Louis Zoo or Lincoln Park Zoo

air conditioning when it's too hot to breathe outside

driving with the windows down in the car and getting our hair all knotted up

Zoe's t-ball games

Cardinals and White Sox games

eating all of the junk food we can at Cardinals and White Sox games

mowing the path to the woods so we can wander...

heading to the library for some good reading material,

even if it's just "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!"

lazing in the hammock

watching the girls imagination come alive


sunhats and sunscreen

popsicles and sno-cones

did I mention Chad's homemade peach sorbet?
