First Day of Summer = Best Day

20 Jun

Oh how I love the summer.

Sure it was over 100 degrees today but you won’t hear me complaining about the heat!  I love when it’s 8:30 p.m. and still light out.  I love short sleeves.  I love feeling warm.  I love the beach!  I love it so much that I picked up the twins early from school today for a beach outing.  (it’s their last week of school and every day is early dismissal at this point anyway!)

We went with my parents.  I’ve mentioned that they moved to NY a couple of months ago.  They are just loving how close they live to the beach and have been dying to get there with the kids.

My parents have endless energy so it turned out to be such a great time.  And it made me very happy there was one adult for each kid because I am usually outnumbered and it’s a little scary still with the kids and the ocean.

I literally had to drag them out of the water after a few hours.  Believe me I didn’t want to leave either but they are so fair and their skin is precious!

I took my parents back to their place and we all went for a swim in their pool which was a great way to clean off the 20 pounds of sand stuck to the kids.

Maybe it was the large dose of Vitamin D i got today, but I was revved up for kickboxing this evening despite the continued 100 degree weather into the night!  While I was there the kids played in the street until almost 9!

We all ended the day sweaty and happy.  Who else is with me on summer being the best season!!!?

    for me it s a tie between spring with the anticipation of pool/beach weather then of course the summer itself and the fall with the cool breezes and changing of the leaves :)

    Cute pictures! I love the summer too. I need a beach day like that and some Vitamin D! The closest beach around here has brown sand, and it’s on the lake. Very different from where you are. Hope you have a lot more sunny summer days.
