Summer Days

   I love, love, love summer!  I love the unexpected little rainshowers, the long days, the fresh fruit and produce, road trips with my family, and yes, call me crazy, but I even love the heat.   Of course, I know it will end soon.  Children will go back to school, cool crisp winds will blow and I will be just as excited about the fall. 

   But for now, I'm going to bask in the sunlight and cram as many little trips and summer activities into my schedule as is humanly possible.  This week, I gathered my little chicks together and we headed over to Paris for a day trip.  We spent the day with my sisters-in-law and my brother-in-law and had a great time!

   Here's Michael enjoying the pool...

  His mom and Aunt Melanie had a great time, too!

   And then, yesterday, Michael and I took  one last trip over to Ham's Orchard in Terrell.  The orchard is only open from May 15th through August 15th, so this was our last chance to pick up some nice, sweet peaches and eat some of their delicious peach ice cream.

   Even in the 100 degree heat Michael really enjoyed the treat!

   I brought back a whole box of peaches and today I'm going to freeze some, make some jelly and a nice big cobbler...

   After we came home, we got to spend the evening cuddling with sweet Lilly...

You can't beat that for a fun, summer day!


  1. Glenda, with that pool, kids and peaches i was reminded that even in the heat I love summertime too. Thanks! It is "funny" how we remember the small things... chasing bumble bees, catching fireflies putting them in a jar, june bugs around the porch light, swimming and performing cannon balls in the deep end of the pool, mowing the lawn, walking to town with best friend Randy.... i still love love summertime with friends and family!

  2. dbl,
    I hope Michael will have lots of memories like that, too! I think my mom must have "shooed" me outside in the summer, because most of my memories are of the outdoors, too. :) No video games or TV, just some good ole daydreaming and lots of make-believe!
