What does summer time mean to you?

When I think of summer, the first thing I think of is the sounds of summer. Like the sounds of frogs or crickets at night. Going to fairs and walking the boards at the Jersey Shore. Going for ice cream with family. BBQ's with family and friends. My favorite thing is fireworks on the 4th of July.  Sun dresses and flip flops. Sitting on the beach and watching the kids play in the water.  Sitting on my deck with a nice cold glass of Vino.....aahh life is good.

  • It means miserable heat (which means outrageous utility bills) and great kid's programs at the library and through the community theater. Extra Girl Scout field trips adn lots of time spent planning the next school year and preparing for Fall holidays (those are my favorites).

  • Going on trips and having more time. Last summer we went on about a dozen trips, and we just can't do that when the kids are in school.

  • It means heat and sunblock and FRUIT, oh god, the fruits of summer. It means travel and swimming and relaxing and fun.

  • Me dying ;) I HATE being hot and Japan is super hot in the summer! And we don't even have our air turned on yet, they won't turn it on till the temp reaches 78 for 3 days straight (problem is our humidity is 80%+ daily, so it is nasty hot already!)...ugh :( Anyway, lol. I used to enjoy swimming, family time, and 4th of July but almost all those are gone as we live here...No family and they won't have fireworks this year because of everything that happened in March!
