Sweet Summer Time

Fall and winter are for football, gumbo, and nights around the fire.  Spring is for 
gardening and iced tea on the front porch.  And summer, sweet summer, is for the 
water.  Summer is for spending the day in your swimsuit and bare feet, eating 
ham sandwiches on a picnic blanket, hours and hours playing in the pool.  And so our 
weekend went: morning, afternoon, and evening sessions of swimming, long naps, sun 
kissed skin.  Little girls giggling as their Daddy tosses them up into the air, sunbathing
 on floaties, music floating through the outdoor speakers.  School is out, the weather is
 warm, and we could not be more excited for the promise of long days in the pool together.  
We started making summer 2012 memories this weekend and, by the looks of it, 
we are off to a great start.

I am longing for the pools to open. The other day E pointed the hose up in the air and let the mist fall my way and it made the desire even stronger. I'm a water gal through and through. So very cool that you all have a pool of your own and are able to spend so much time taking it all in. :)

We bought that pop up pool from Walmart a couple of summers ago and it has served us well!  One day, far far away, we'll build a "real" pool.  For now, we are just thankful for the water!!

Thank you!!  It's Billabong, I bought it a couple of summers ago from Urban Outfitters.  That 1950s pinup cut serves my curvy figure well.  I have finally accepted that my bikini days are a things of the past:(
