To participate (you totally should!) go visit Kasey at All That is Good.

This week's task is to tell us

10 things you love about summer!

Here are my 10 things in no particular order...

1. The WARMTH! Sure, some days it is a little too warm... but I love it nonetheless!

2. The Fourth of July Freedom Parade in Provo. It is awesome! I really missed it last year when we were in Hawaii.

3. Playing in the sprinklers. It's the best. And because the water is still ice cold its only really fun when it's hot out!

4. Camping! I love going out west for a day or two to ride!

5. Did you know that Utah is beautiful in the summer? It really, really is!

6. My kids hardly get sick! I don't know about yours, but during the winter my kids are constantly battling runny noses. So this is a big deal.

7. Lagoon is open! I try to go once in the summertime. Not so much for the twirly rides, just for the atmosphere. And for the water rides!

8. Long Days! I love, love, love  how the sun doesn't even go down until after 9!

10. Good Movies! Much anticipated movies like Harry Potter and... um.... Harry Potter... and um... ya know, the "summer blockbusters".

There you have it! 10 reason I {HEART} Summer! I really, really do! I will enjoy these few months of warmth and store up for the rest of  the year when it's chilly to freezing! That's Utah. :)

I'm not the hugest fan of Lagoon, only because it's so dang huge, but I do love the water rides! Also, I didn't know your birthday is July 7. Alyssa's is the 6th and my birthday is the 29th of THIS month! YAY for birthdays!

Summer will forever hold a dear place in my heart. Though I'm not necessarily a fan of the heat, those weeks off from teaching seem to console me nicely.
