Experiencing summer for the third time makes me basically an expert on this fine season,
Summer is sunshine on your face.
Summer is a full backyard.
Summer is cherry shaved ice.
Summer is mud puddles after the rain.
Summer is wildflowers.
Summer is drinking juice pool side.
But mostly summer is playing so hard you can’t even finish your steamer on the way home,
I love summer.
After living the island life in the Far East, we moved a little less east and stayed with Grammie and Grandpa in a town called Mystic.
There was a pool.
Mom made me wear these things called floaties. I pretended to hate them.
But those things called floaties let me swim by myself. Don’t tell mom I kind of love my floaties.
There was a beach.
Grammie gave me this red shovel and bucket.
And there was a fantastic sunset.
Dad and the Mystic sunset.
I loved spending time with Grammie and Grandpa in the lovely town of Mystic.
Since this is my second summer, I am becoming quite an expert on how to enjoy this season. If you want to know how you too can make the most of your summer days, allow me to give you some suggestions.
Install a pool in your backyard.
Install a slide for that pool.
Plant some flowers. Then don’t touch them because it will make your mom mad.
Decorate the flagstone walk with chalk. But don’t eat the chalk because it doesn’t taste good.
Run through a fountain on your local walking mall.
Have a picnic dinner in the park.
And always take a moment to enjoy the summer sunset.
Now get out there and enjoy your summer. I’m certainly enjoying my second one so far!
Mom installed a pool in the backyard.
It is only big enough for me and four of my five favorite bath toys.
But don’t worry. I will gladly help cool you off, even if you can’t get in the pool.
Summer is awesome.
Mom and Aunt E took me and my blue duckie to something called the pool. It was like a giant bathtub but it was blue and there were lots of kids. Oh, and the water was cold.
I am glad blue duckie came with me.
I used a splash signal for when blue duckie strayed.
I found keeping track of duckie to be a serious matter.
Duckie found a safe perch, out of the cold blue water.
I like blue duckie and Aunt E. Not sure about the pool.
Mom and Aunt E seemed to enjoy it a lot. I am still undecided as to whether or not the pool is fun.
Did I mention that the water was cold?
