My mom and Natalie get to enjoy the baby story hour at our public library today, and then tonight the weather should allow us another evening meal on the back deck. I think eating al fresco might be my absolute favorite thing about summer.
Speaking of summer, I think summer is actually here you guys. And not in a maybe-the-sun-is-going-to-stick-around way, but in a full-on way that smells like freshly cut grass and tastes like salty sea air. I can hardly believe it!
The start of summer means means we are staring down pretty packed weekends from now until September 1st. Really, starting tomorrow I think our Saturdays are almost all booked for the summer–all kinds of things to look forward to!
Here’s what the next month or so looks like for us: Tomorrow I get a whole day all to myself to get a massage and do some solo thrift-shopping, a Mother’s Day gift that Mike set up for me; next weekend we’re having family photos taken, checking out our town’s Summer Solstice festival and hitting up a co-worker’s pig roast; plus, oh, yeah, it’s Father’s Day! We’re spending ours walking out to the Breakwater Lighthouse and picnicking on the shore with both of our dads; the following weekend we’ll be celebrating my birfday and my dad’s birfday with a day trip to Pemaquid beach and a family cookout; then we’re counting the days until Natalie’s Uncle Harper is up to visit for the 4th of July weekend, when we’ll be hosting a little summer camp kick-off shindig on our back deck for my co-workers.
And that just brings us to the first days of July. Whew! Busy, but so much fun.
