Summertime makes me so happy.
What's not to love?
Sitting on my deck, surrounded by flowers.
Even the window boxes that I put up this year are filling in nicely.
We spent the past weekend in Vermont, Erin had a softball tournament there. It was wonderful to spend some time with our favorite softball families.
We spent a lot of time hanging out on the hotel balconies, enjoying the view and the cool breeze coming from the river.
We spent more time at the ball field, though..........three games on Saturday and Erin's team was seeded #1. That led to more games on Sunday.
Have you ever seen a more spectacular view at a ball field?
On Friday night, we were all sort of exhausted from traveling. We went out for dinner and then called it a night, as we had to be at the ball field by 7 a.m.
Look at the size of this bug on the window! (For those of you who are wondering, the bug was on the outside.) It was HUGE. Probably about 3 or 4 inches long. I couldn't help but snap a picture.
The table by the bug was not occupied while we were eating dinner, but as our group of twelve was leaving there were people being seated by the bug. The woman that was sitting at that window was oblivious to the creepy-crawley bug on the window, but I think at some point she would have noticed and I like to imagine that she let out a nice shriek.
I admit it, I smiled (okay, I smirked) as we walked past the Inferno with its promises of "music, temptation and booze."
This pina colada recipe that I'm about to give you is family-friendly so there is no alcohol in it........but if you're tempted to booze it up, add a splash of rum!
