Five Favorite Things About Summer

I was tagged by Erica at Scottsville, to write a post about my five favorite things about summer. (By the way, if you haven't checked out Erica's blog yet, you should...her photo posts are awesome!)

I love the countless hours spent in my backyard, playing with the kids. Whether it's sitting and reading a magazine while the kids play, or pitching to Dylan, or chasing the kids around with water guns, I love it!

I love the endless picnics and outdoor birthday parties. I love our hikes and trips to the zoo.

I love sundresses and flip flops. For me, but mostly for Lexie. There's a reason that Lexie has 40+ summer dresses!

I love the yummy summer food...fresh fruits and vegetables, corn on the cob, potato salad...I'm hungry just thinking about it!

I love the sights and sounds of summer...the vibrant green grass and trees, the smell of the honeysuckle and mint in my backyard, the sounds of the birds and crickets, fireflies, and the long summer days.

What do you love about summer?

Just for fun, I tag ALL of you!
