A Few Quick Summer Things

We really love summer. Summer has a special, exciting feeling to it. Summer makes us happy. There's swimming, camping, forth of July, lazy days, picnics...the list goes on for days of things to be excited about for summer. Swimming is a regular thing for our family. I love watching the girls get along and have fun together. 

After our fun day of swimming yesterday, we had a few errands to run as a family. M was clearly worn out. She couldn't stay awake even sitting in the cart.

This morning my girls requested Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast. But they don't like them in the milk. They decided to dip them in milk like you dip cookies in milk. Whatever gets them to eat something that is healthy and filling for them, right?

When the girls want to play in water but we have to stay home, we fill a bucket of some kind with water and let them have at it.  They play like this for hours sometimes.  We would just run through the sprinklers or something like that, but we don't have sprinklers in our tiny back yard. When they are done, we throw their clothes in the dryer and call it good. 

It's been quite a while since I've been able to do any reading, and I've been craving a good book recently. So I pulled out an old favorite (Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites series) today and got to read for a little bit while the girls played with water. This book brings back a lot of family memories for me. We used to listen to these on tape while we were heading out on a camping trip. 

What are your favorite things about summer?

Any good book recommendations for me?
