Sweet Summer. I just love Summer. Why does it seem to always end so quickly?
Last weekend was a good weekend. On Friday, we went to our very first concert in the park with my sister and her family. It was so much fun! The park has their stage situated not far from the playgrounds so we found a spot that was perfect to be able to keep our eyes on the kids while also enjoying the concert. It was a win win for everyone! The band playing that night did covers for some classic oldies….like Take it Easy, Brown-eyed Girl, Brick House, and Sweet Emotion. They were really good!
I also captured the most beautiful sunset that night.
Saturday we basically spent the day outside and the girls dug in the dirt, played in their pool and chased fireflies when it got dark.
I tried to get a picture of the lightning bugs as they lit up but it just wasn't happening. The girls did great and caught a lot of them with their bug nets. We, of course, released them before heading inside.
Sunday was spent doing much of the same. JMac put a coat of stain on the girls playset while the girls dug, swam and chased fireflies. I'm pretty sure they would live outside if they could. Oh, we also ate popsicles and discovered a new friend on our patio.
I have a feeling our weekends will consist of pretty much the same as last weekend. I do have a couple of special outings planned for sometime this summer though. I want to soak up as much of this weather as I can because it will be over before we know it and the girls will be in school and I'll be complaining about how cold it is.
