Two kids sitting on a stoop with watermelon juice dripping down their face
Early Friday afternoons driving with country music cranked and the windows down
Festivals where you buy that cool painting and hippy bracelet
Lazy Lake days where you avoid the weeds and try to stay up on your water skis so you can avoid falling in the mystery waters
Being by the lake or ocean and putting on sunscreen, ouch it got in my eye again dammit!
Smoothies, popsicles, crisp beer, and tangy wine
Fires, grilling, and stories shared -beginning with the sun and ending with the stars
Date nights where you put in your name a little bit longer to nab that outdoor seating
Tan skin, burnt skin, and really, really pale Minnesota skin
New swimsuits, ancient swimsuits, tiny swimsuits, and no swimsuits
Red, white, and blue baby
Long runs and bike rides, throwing a good outdoor hike in there too
Sunglasses, sun hats, short shorts, long shorts, tanks, and tees
Weddings, receptions, new babes, so many reasons to celebrate
Summer days, summer nights, this is what summer is.
