Summer Lovin’: What do you love about the summer? Do you switch up your routine? What does summer mean to you?
My summers have been about splashing. Yes, I have the odd memory of bike rides or playing in the backyard, but from the time I was tiny, I have been in the water. I have a swimming mother so Billy and I had to become swimmers too.
Summers at the cabin, swimming in Big Pine Lake.
End-of-summer trips to the Wisconsin Dells for 96 hours of chlorinated relaxation.
Weekly trips to Lake Independence to swim and splash with friends.
Trips to Lifetime to ride down the waterslide and bob about in a quite-overcrowded pool.
Summers spent lifeguarding on Lake Charlotte.
Canoeing. Fishing. Some really bad water skiing. Kiddie pools. Sprinklers. Slip and slides.
This is just what we did. In the water. Out of the water. In the water again. Days and weeks spent in swimsuits.
While Critter is far too young to have any sort of real pool adventures, this is just one of the many things that I look forward to doing with him when he is a bit bigger. It will be the best fun.
