2nd-day-of-summerI saw tons of photos online of people celebrating the first day of summer the other day. As much as summer isn’t my top favorite season (it’s #3 on my list) celebrating when summer begins IS pretty fun. BBQ-ing, getting ready for the 4th, water play… I particularly love BBQ-ing. Brad and I are a team effort and it’s fun when we cook together. I prep and set everything up and then I pass it off to Brad to BBQ. Samantha loves hanging out with Brad outside too when he’s grillin’. I love that the kids love eating BBQ too. Meals that we can all enjoy eating together definitely puts a smile on my face. At this point in our lives the kids usually eat before Brad comes home from work during the week. They still get to have a lot of quality time with Brad when he gets home which I”m thankful for, but sitting down as a family on the weekends to eat dinner has become a special treat. I love setting the table and enjoying the fruit of our works together. We are making memories… and it’s wonderful.

Happy Summer everyone!

    I love these photos. It looks like it could come out of a magazine. The already eaten off of plate is especially great. Stay cool!

    Oh yum! We are in the same place with weeknight meals being hit or miss if Dad is home, but weekends are sacred! We are still waiting for A to sprout some more teeth (she’s only got 2 at 14months!!!), but as soon as she does, we’ll all be digging into corn on the cob!

    Love that you are celebrating summer! The reminder to bust out the BBQ was much needed. We’ll have to do that soon!

    I love grilling and barbecuing too! While I prefer the fall and the snow during winter time, I do enjoy being able to pull out the grill whenever during the summer! Love the pics!
