Summer, gotta' love it!

I love the sun and REALLY love summer time! My body does not like cold weather at all. I love every aspect of the sun, in fact I do believe I have sunshine pouring through my veins.

Although originally from California (until the big Sylmar quake of 71 that took our 2 story house down to a 1 story - I may blog about that sometime), Arizona is and always will be my home. Yes, it's hotter than H.E.L.L. during the summer time... okay, more than just the summer time, but hey... "it's a dry heat."

So what are your plans for the summer? Mine? Well, we were originally going to go to Cali/Knotts Berry Farm in June, but had to change plans due to my wrists and all. So, we are going there for 1 week in August. I am VERY much looking forward to it!

Barbeque's are always fun. See the big burger above? That looks just about like one of my dad's famous burgers, but smaller. Dad makes the BEST burgers ever! Including his own BBQ sauce ranging from root beer, jalapeno, apricot, etc. The man loves his BBQ!

For me, summer time brings out the best in people, just like during the winter holidays. Well, except if you're in Arizona getting into your extremely hot car that has been sitting in the parking lot while shopping, burning your bum on the leather seat, grabbing hold of the steering wheel which has turned into hot magma and then scream in pain.

Camping! LOVE camping! Haven't been in a few years and we really miss going, but that is a fun summer/anytime event. Now I must admit that our tent setup looks NOTHING like the one above. Ours is blue. Naw, really, we camp like real campers... sleeping bags, tents, campfire, make shift kitchen, roast marshmallows, make coffee on the rocks by the campfire, etc. Fun times!

There are many things to do during the summer and no matter if it is simply hanging around the house, going to movies, relaxing at the beach, lake or back yard pool, visiting friends, having BBQ parties, creating for the upcoming holidays, cleaning out the closets (okay, maybe not that one) or simply doing nothing - enjoy it and don't waste it - life is precious so enjoy every moment!

Happy summer!

Ok..I would love to camp like that. I don't think that is camping tho...I think whomever set that up is living My boys would have a fit if I set up that tent. Looks like fun tho!! Where's the electric hook up for my hair dryer? j/k.

I hope you have a great summer - I love the summer, too! Hope you have fun at the theme park - I went to Darien Lake this summer and we had a blast! Usually we go to Canada's Wonderland but decided to change things up a little bit this year. Enjoy the hot weather! :)

That's one stylin' tent set up! LOL I used to love tent camping until we moved to central Oregon where we have bear and cougars! LOL Now we have one of those little Chalet trailers, which I'm sure the right LARGE bear could break into if he wanted, but it makes me feel better! :D

Have a wonderful time at Knott's! Wish I could go too! :)

Oh I KNOW! When I came across that pic I just had to use it. I've NEVER seen a tent set up like that before and ours doesn't even come close to that... although the bed sure would be nice & comfy!

Hey Deb... we would honestly love to do that! I'll hook up with you soon :)
