Is it Summer Yet?


For a full month, my little boy has been asking me if it's summer.  "Is it summer, Mommy?  Mommy, is it summer?  Can I go pool?"  For a three year-old, he has an excellent recollection of last summer.  He knows exactly where his little pool is stored in the garage, and he's always asking about going to the beach.  Even though he doesn't officially know all of his seasons, he's definitely a summer baby.  (Heck, he really is...his birthday is in August.)

For the past month, I've been telling him it's spring.  It's time for grass and green leaves and flowers and rain to make everything grow.  Still, he's not convinced.  The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and to him, it's summer.  It's time to break out the pool.  And you know what?  This Memorial Day weekend has certainly felt like summer.  On Saturday night we took a stroll by the beach, and yesterday we had an opportunity to enjoy a good old fashioned picnic with our friends and their children.  So, for the sake of my little boy, it is summer.  Why not?  Sure it's not official until June 21st, but in the meantime, let's take out those shorts for good and get the pool ready!  After a wonderful weekend spent outdoors, I'm ready to embrace the season now too.

My turn with Little Lewie.

Enjoying the beach.  The cold water was no deterrent for my little boy.

My good friend Debbie with her little girl.  They definitely had the Memorial Day spirit!

Time to roast marshmallows. 

They love smores just as much as I do!

Getting dressed.  I caught you!

  1. Looks like an awesome time! Hope your enjoying the nice long holiday with your family and sweet little Lewie!

  2. Hi Annette,
    We were at the beach this morning and then we went to the lake in the afternoon. It is close by and they have a sprinkler park there. It was a great day for being in the water! These pictures look like so much fun! Thank you for your comment. I am really at that point of figuring out many things. Maybe we can meet at Mystic one time! The kids would have fun! Have a great night!
