Summer...If Only For The Day

This summer has been slow going, to say the least.  I know there are parts of the country that are baking with 100+ degree days, but here in Minnesota, we've had rain and 50s for weeks.

The lack of vitamin D is crippling.
Add to that the wild children who are cooped inside STILL after a long winter, and we're all going a little batty.
But today, the clouds parted ways and we saw that bright, warm, lovely sun for the afternoon.

When we got home today, the girls immediately put on swim suits so we could run around in the yard and play with WATER.  Sprinklers and water tables might be the best thing for any summer yard.  The simple joy of getting wet and splashed and dumping water can keep my kids busy for hours.  Awesome.  I got to sit and sweat with a Diet Coke and Candy Crush, and they soaked their hair, and had grass stick to their feet.  Classic sign of summer.


What's your favorite thing to do in the summer??
