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.
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom! I got her a special present!…………..
Yes. Snow on Mother’s Day!
Mom wasn’t super pleased with my gift. I also don’t think she believed that I made the snow just for her.
Well… okay. I didn’t technically make the snow. Whoever did is a genius, though.
Mom, I think you are as special as a snow storm in May. Happy Mother’s Day!
At the beginning of the week Twizzle and I played outside.
At the end of the week Twizzle and I played outside.
Just another normal week of winter.
…but can we come back inside now? Mom?…mom? Little bother?…anyone?… It’s cold!!
I find it is my duty to help others learn how to properly accessorize.
Dogs need a little pizzaz to complement their fur.
Little bothers need shades to spruce up their crying face.
I definitely have a good eye for complementing and sprucing.
You can have a Tea Party with just about anyone.
You can have a Tea Party with your stuffed hippo.
You can have a Tea Party with a baby.
You can even have a Tea Party with your Twizzle.
But, the best Tea Party ever is the one you have with your dad.
Pour. Clink. Sip.
That white stuff is back! Twizzle and I are so happy. I don’t understand why mom and dad aren’t as thrilled.
You can eat it, and you get to wear adorable snow hats. What is there not to like? Hooray snowy white stuff!
Mountain Lakes are not only cold, pristine and beautiful, they are also wonderful places to bond with your family.
All that snow melts off the mountains into the lake. That is why it is so cold. And so very cool.
You can swim in the lake with your dog.
It is not fair. He has a fur bathing suit on.
You can climb on a rock with your dad.
He rescued me onto his rock island.
Or you can pose on a bridge with your mom.
Warm snuggles after a cold swim.
Mountain Lakes are a great weekend excursion. Get thyself to one pronto.
Guess what we were doing when we took these pictures.
And, well, also sitting in the middle of the trail.
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!
Twizzle makes a great reading pillow, and he loves when I read to him.
Of course, he prefers the books about that dog named Spot.
