Fun in the SUMMERTIME...

When August comes around the corner I want to take in as much Summer as I can because Fall in almost here!
What are your favorite things to do in the summer months?
I love to have BBQ's, swim in the pool, be with family, eat homemade ice cream, make sweet visits to the beach and when each evening cools off I LOVE rocking in my rocking chair on my front porch! Now that's a bit of heaven!
Hope you are enjoying the end of summer and all the blessings summer brings! XO

Dear MaryJane,
Loved this lovely sweet post! I too love hanging out on my front porch, looking at the lovely gardens, knowing it will soon be raining and cold! :(

Football has started, that always signals fall is just around the corner...

Have a blessed Sunday with your family.
XO,
Donna Lynn

My favorite thing about summer is that school is out. I am a teacher and I love being able to have a leisurely breakfast, read the paper and linger over my coffee watching the birds at the feeders. I love having more free time to go and do with people I love.

I'm so not a summer girl. Give me the cooler temeratures of Autumn and I am a happy camper. But summer just wears me out. My sister is like you- loves the summer and everything that goes with it. Funny how different we are.
Hope all is well with you! Hazel started laying last Sunday and she has delivered five eggs this week. :) What a gal!

Maryjane- Great post! I love the smell of BBQ, having fun prancing around in the sprinklers when no one is looking, relaxing on the porch with my hubby and trying to finish an ice cream cone before it melts. Though fall is my favorite season, I do love summer. Thanks!

I usually always think of things I like to do in the summer in the dead of winter. I think oh I can't wait to do that.....and now it is summer and I'm still not doing it. Just kidding!!! I love to barbecue, sit and read with my windows open with a beautiful breeze blowing in just like today and just enjoy God's beauty.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Hi Mom,
My most favorite thing to do in the past was, swimming in the pool and eating dads homemade ice cream....I can still taste it! I loved going to the river and our trips to the beach in Santa Barbara. Great memories!
Now, I our summers are filled with swimming in the pool and being outside most of the day to enjoy the warm sun and breeze,and taking walks to enjoy nature!
There is always something special I love about every season!
love you, Tiff xo

It sounds like you are enjoying your summer. Personally I cannot wait for it to be over, lol! Our weather is such that fall/winter/spring are the best times of year and bbq's happen year round. What I do LOVE about summer is the fruits..watermelons, cherries, nectarines..True summer love.

Hubs bought a pop-up trailer!!! Squeeeeeealll!!!!! Okay, so it's not a vintage one but it'll have to do for my shabby/chic-ing it up, sweet beehive chick. We usually go up to Grandjean to camp though. You can see it on my blog - sometime last week though........ I'm so excited I could just spit!
Smoochies,
Connie

I love to eat frozen custard and
read out on my patio. I also like to look at all the pretty flowers out.

Heidi said...

We love swimming at your house! That's our favorite... and dinner outside while we relax in the cool breeze. We might as well move in since we are always there, hau?!!! BBQ and most recently bee-bee gun shooting with Grandpa are a favorite as well. We also love sitting on the front patio couch outside... watching the birds and frogs! The kids love it there and I know they will always remember Grandma and Grandpa's.

There is nothing better than the smell of steaks on the grill and the feel of the water when you first jump in!

Tracy said...

Fun post, MaryJame! I love summer...And I love having tea in the mornings on the porch, lazy evening dinners on the porch, tinkering in the garden, picnics at the beach, strawberries, the first picked lettuces and tomatoes...But summer is winding down here, there's almost a hint of autumn in the air already...So savoring every drop of summer now! Happy Days ((HUGS))

Tiffi said...

Oh that picture of Sadie is the CUTEST! I can't believe she is sitting up!
Oh I love her!

Oh yes, MaryJane. Aren't those just the sweetest things in life? I think I could spend all day on the front porch swing.

Blessings,
