I have always been a "summer girl". As a child, I remember long, lazy, hot days out in Manteca spent splashing about in our kiddie pool, reading books in the shade, playing make-believe games with Leah, sucking on popsicles, riding our bikes, batting away the June bugs in the warmth of dusk, and simply feeling.....free. It's funny how summers as a child felt SO LONG......as if those school-free months would never end, the days blending into one another as if they would last a lifetime. Because of these wonderful early memories, summer was always (and still is) my favorite time of the year, characterized by lots of time spent with family, BBQ's, camping trips, days at the pool, outdoor adventures, Giant's baseball, ice cream, family and happiness. Funny thing is I still associate those exact same things with summer....which just happen to be some of my favorite things in life. And even though it isn't officially summer just yet, I can feel it in the air!
And last weekend we kicked off the summer in style! Saturday we BBQ'd with the family and took Zoey in the pool for the first time. She just LOVED splashing around in the water and didn't want to get out! Then on Sunday we all went to the Giant's/A's game at AT&T park.....a fun yet hot day in the city. Overall it was a perfect family, filled, summer weekend. Hopefully the first of many more to come!
