Signs of summer

We had such a great weekend. But how can any weekend that includes grilled hot dogs not be awesome?

Even though we stayed in town, it felt like vacation.

We grilled out, took naps, hit the pool, ate our first watermelon and corn-on-the-cob of the season. Small fry also got her first taste of bbq-flavored potato chips. Big thumbs-up.

She was timid at the pool, so I thought it would be a good idea to take her under water with me. You know, a learning moment. Not so much. First, there was shock. Then the screaming. But she recovered quickly and soon was congratulating herself. Repeatedly.

A little pre-swim yoga to warm up the ol’ muscles:

Our blissful three days together wound down with another meal on the grill and blueberries from Vollmer Farm (I could eat the whole pint — they’re like buttah).

Hope your weekend was awesome!

Did you eat hot dogs?

  1. LOVE! We did travel but it was so fun and relaxing. Oscar does that downward dog all the time when he’s tired. Too cute . Glad you had fun!

  2. No hotdogs but I am scarred for life from a YMCA swim lesson when the instructor decided to break me in with an underwater (I remember it as:) flip in the pool. Sounds like your girl is more resilient on this tip.

  3. The last photo is adorable! Enjoy the summer for us!! We are in no-seasons land so I will be living the summer through your blog 🙂
