Friend Makin' Monday!

Over at All That Is Good....we're makin' friends! Kasey is asking what our Top 10 Favs for summer are. Here are mine:

1. Longer days! I love that the sun shines pretty brightly from about 6am to 8pm. It makes the day long and luxurious! I can get a bit of a mid-day nap and STILL have tons of time to get things done. If we hit the beach for the entire day, you feel like you've been gone ForEver!

2. Water, water, everywhere! If you've read anything on this blog in the past week or so, it's been about WATER! Kids love it, we love it....water is GOOD!

3. Fresh summer veggies! One of the things I'm most anticipating for our trip home to Iowa this year (besides my bestest friends wedding! WOOHOO!) is the fresh summer sweet corn and veggies straight from Mom's garden! Oh I can't wait for the green peppers, corn, tomatoes. We'll gorge on veggies for two weeks straight!

4. Open air! We open our windows and doors as much as possible and let the fresh air in. That's another part of going home....they don't have a/c so we spend the whole time either outside or the house with all the windows open. Love that breeze!

5. Swimming lessons. This year we are starting the boys in their swimming lessons. Oh I can't wait!

6. Watermelon! Yummy, juicy, juicy, JUICY watermelon! Oh. My!

7. Summer rains. Here in Florida, we tend to get a summer rain in the middle of the afternoon. It's short, sweet and usually to the point. Doesn't mess up your whole day. Very refreshing. Love the way new rain smells and we love listening to the thunder.

8. Pedicures! Can I always have toes that look like this?

9. Shorts and T-shirts. Our summer staples. Comfy, casual, perfect.

10. Vacations. Summer feels like it's the time to take vacations. Even if you take them other times of the year. Summer vacation is a requirement in life, right?

I hope you all have a terrific summer! And head on over to Kasey's place to make some new friends this summer!

I love your list! It's the 3rd time I've seen "watermelon" and I can't believe I forgot to put that on mine!
