Hot hot heat
These past couple days in the DC area have been downright toasty. With highs near 90 degrees, it feels like we skipped right past spring and dove headfirst into summer! I'm loving the opportunity to break out my warm weather clothes (I pretty much live in dresses during the summer), and to take part in all kinds of warm weather fun. Eating dinner on our deck, long walks, happy hours outside, Frisbee in the park...I love it all.
Warm weather always reminds me of some of my favorite childhood experiences. I have so many memories of playing outdoors with neighborhood kids during the summer months. We loved walking along the creek that ran through our neighborhood, jumping rope, and taking part in crazy water gun battles that inevitably ended with all of us soaking wet. We also loved setting up lemonade stands. About once a month during the summer, my younger sister and I would beg our mom to make a pitcher of lemonade, which we sold in Dixie cups to passers-by (for a whopping 25 cents). I remember getting ridiculously excited when one of our neighbors handed us a $1 and told us to "keep the change." These days, whenever I see little kids with a lemonade stand, I always stop and buy a cup.
I'd love to hear your favorite warm weather memories! Please do share. And if you're in the DC area, I hope you're enjoying the heat spell!
