I'm not sure what is happening, but it's hardly reached 100 degrees so far this May. It has been wonderful. That hasn't stopped us from slipping on our swim suits and hitting the pool. On Friday, we spent the morning swimming with friends. That afternoon, we hit our other favorite summer spots: the donut shop and the library. I'm pretty sure we maxed out our library card. That's always a good sign. So I'd say our summer is off to a fantastic start. I hope yours is, too!

Yesterday we bought a family pass to the city pools. We've never done that before, but it seems like swimming is all my kids can talk about, so I am sure we will get lots of use out of it. If you live around here, we should meet up at the pool sometime. Swimming with friends is always more fun.


  1. Swimming and reading are our favorite summer activities too! What books are you reading? I need some ideas.
