The Start of Summer….

I’m so excited for this weekend – are you?!  My husband’s dad’s extended family always has a big reunion/get-together on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, and then the town we live in always has a small 4-day fair and then a parade, sponsored by the local fire dept.  Since we live two doors down from the fire department, we get front row seats for the parade and can walk to the little carnival!  (And it’s really not as bad as it sounds – when you live in a small town like ours, hardly anybody’s house ever lights on fire {i.e., no sirens in the middle of the night!}). 

Anyway, my toes are painted a happy shade like this:


And I plan on eating one of these (without the bun, of course):

And playing some of this:

And taking Luke to see one of these:

And then letting him watch one of these:

And I must say I really respect these (for many reasons):

But right now, for giving me the change to experience all of the above!  :)

Happy weekend!  Are you filling it with fun, summery things, too?
