Summer is

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.
