Summer Joy

Summer is… running through the sprinkler, slurping on popsicles, yelling "Marco! Polo! at the pool, catching lightning bugs, playing Ghosts in the Graveyard, listening to the sound of crickets and locusts, camping in the tent in the backyard, falling asleep with pool-soaked hair, waking up in the morning and doing it all over again.

Ah, to be a kid during summer. What says “summer” to you?

It’s Thursday, folks, which means the three-day weekend is almost here, as is my journey to see U2. Did I mention that I'm going to the U2 concert? I did? Well, I'll say it again: I'M GOING TO THE U2 CONCERT!!  Can’t wait to see my Irishmen.

These days summer means taking the kids on trips to the art museum and sitting on the stoop watching all the kids on the block ride scooters back and forth.

Summer, the smell of creosote heated by the sun on the boardwalk,dried sea salt crinkling on your skin and the Philies on the radio with my Grandfathert

Every year I can't wait for farmers markets, fireworks, baseball games, fresh peaches, lazy days at the pool or beach, and grilling out. All my favorite summer things!

Have a blast at U2! I love summer concerts as well. ;)

The smell of fresh cut grass, the feel of a cold pool on a hot day, and Bono...these are a few of my favorite things!
