Shell seeking at the beach with the kids!

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

One of my favorite things to do in summer is the kids go night swimming with friends, we make smores,the lightning bugs are sure to be out and we hang out and talk with friends under the light of the moon and tiki torches!

foggogs said...

I love going to the town pool for the day, meeting my friends and their kids and getting in a few moments in the pool for myself during "adult only swim". They do this from quarter of the hour till the hour ever day. So 15 minutes of peace for me while the kids play! Gotta Love it. Thanks for the giveaway.

My favorite SUMMER activity is going swimming at our local pool with my son! This will be my 1st summer with him in my arms at the pool. Last summer I had quite a bit of stares... DUE to the growing belly. :)

My favorite activity is bringing my little girls to the swimming pool, relaxing in the sun and water and watching the girls have so much fun!

Privet and Holly said...

Oooh....I love EliWill, too! I bought earrings from her Etsy Shop for one of my besties whose b-day was 4-27....beautiful! {Now, maybe it will be my turn to own one of her lovelies!} Okay, one of the many things that I love to do in the summer is to sit on our deck and blow bubbles. I have a tween and a teen, but there is still something calming and magical to them {and me} about watching the bubbles float around the air and up into the tree tops. xx P&H

pccraven said...

Sitting on my beach chair at the beach with a good book whilst the kids tire themselves out in the waves! Oh yes and incase you think I am an unfit mother my husband is in there with them ;-) Love love love your blog and am still green with envy at your Paris trip as I live in one of the most isolated cities in the world!

Pink Princess said...

Just being outside, enjoying the warmer weather and sunshine. Sometimes sitting in the garden reading a book, other times working in my garden.

Have a good weekend ♥

1 Funky Woman said...

Ooooh, loving the necklace, just darling!

My favorite thing is sitting on the deck with a good book and a frozen cocktail and watching the kids jump on the trampoline until they can't jump anymore!

Elise said...

Mine would have to be a day at the beach, followed by drinks and dinner right on the coast with a view of the ocean. It makes me happy just to think about it!

the cinnamon post said...

such a pretty piece of jewelery...i love going to our friends cottage and enjoying a glass of wine with them down by the lake while the kids run around and get filthy dirty and then jump in the cool water to clean off...
happy Saturday.

My favorite thing in the summer is taking naps in the sun in unreasonable places outdoors OR my love and I drive out onto the dirt backroads or our little town and picknic on the tailgate of my truck at the top of the hill :)

lisaroy said...

My absolute favourite thing is going out in our Hobie kayak on our river. It's like a tandem bike for two but it's a kayak with pedals which works great since I can't seem to paddle very well! Just gliding along and seeing ducks and what our nearby resident beaver is up to is like being in another world - no Blackberrys or distractions - just the two of us. Magical. xx

Lindsey said...

My favorite thing about summer is biking through the many trails in my town, packing picnics, and eating with friends in the park.

Baseball games are a close second!

maria said...

Shirley said...

crabbing at my parents' house off of the dock and eating watermelon and juicy, huge ripe peaches

jaclyn said...

fav summer activity: camping. when you camp there is absolutely no agenda...sit by the fire and read your book for hours or eat smores for breakfast. greenery everywhere and a lake close by. wonderful...

Heather S. said...

I know it is horrible and I'll probably regret it later, but laying out on a floaty in the pool to get some sun...with a little Priscilla Ahn or Brooke Frasier in the background...and the kiddos not splashing me...is that too much to ask?

Katie said...

I love that necklace!

My favorite summer activity is probably anything that involves being outside. Sun, sand, water, etc... I especially love those summer nights (they are the best). Nothing like an Iowa summer sunset over the cornfields :)

Zane said...

one of my favorite summer activities is working at my granma's garden :)

Donna said...

My favorite summer activity is sitting outside in the evening with my sweet husband. We sit in the garden by the fish pond, with candles lit everywhere and listen to music - oh, and maybe sip a glass or three of wine! It's heavenly and he's been gone too long on military stuff so it's been a couple of years since we've gotten to do it but he'll be home in a couple of weeks so I'm really looking forward to getting back into the routine. We'll celebrate our 29th anniversary next month!

I almost feel horrible entering every give-a-way...or greedy....

In Arizona it gets very hot!So my idea of enjoying the summer is by the pool and in the air conditioned craft room of mine,creating many little things.

Anonymous said...

my favorite summer memory is...oh...there is just more than one!!
but one of my favorites is sitting on the back porch, on comfy chairs, with string lights twinkling, and barefoot kids chansing fireflies. there are, of course, friends present. in our hands there is a glass of something refreshing, and across the summer evening air, our laugher ripples like freedom. the flowers in full bloom lend a beautiful hue, and all feels well in the world...if just for an hour.

What a beautiful necklace!
Summertime brings my favorite activity...our family reunion. We fly, drive, and take a ferry to Ft. Flagler in WA state. We all bunk down in the old, old bunkhouse, cook our meals outside, do charades around the came fire while roasting marshmallows, play golf and volleyball in the big, grassy field, and hike through the fort on the cliffs above the Puget Sound. All this with 5 generations of family members sharing and making wonderful memories.

Janie Fox said...

A perfect day would be coffee on the back porch, hanging sheets on the line, weeding a little in the flower beds, reading in the afternoon then hotdogs in the fire pit while the grandkids chase lightning bugs and we visit with all our kids. Have a great weekend! God bless!
