Summer is …
Long days filled with laughter and running through the grass.
Stopping to smell the roses.
Freshly steamed corn, crabs, and potatoes.
Hot and piping barbecue.
S’mores, messy, yummy s’mores.
Lemonade. Pink. Yellow. Cold, on ice. On a stand. In a mug. Anywhere.
Sweet iced tea.
Ice cream. Ice cream trucks. Homemade.
Ice cream cakes.
Running wild and free. Running through the sprinkler. Running at the park.
Roaming. Exploring. Getting a little lost off the trail.
Road trips to no where. Wading. Splashing. Swimming.
No rules for dressing.
Sitting on the porch. Sitting on the patio. Sitting on the grass. Sitting by the pool.
Catching lightning bugs.
Staying up late. Sleeping bag hair.
Warm tents. Cool nights.
Skipping rocks. Searching for the perfect rock.
Drinking cool water from a natural spring.
Jumping in puddles. Getting muddy.
Making mud pies.
Sleeping in. Or dreaming about sleeping in.
Lazy, hot Sunday afternoon naps with a fan blowing on you.
Swinging for hours. Swimming for hours. Daydreaming for hours.
Getting lost in the summer breeze.
Feeling wind blown.
The smell of the ocean. The sound of the ocean.
Sand in your toes, in your hair.
This is summer.
How about you? Summer is … ?
