Summer is (almost) over

Now that the kiddies are back in school, “summer” is officially over. If only we could tell the temperatures that. In honor of the longest summer of my life (due to having a baby during a 3 month school break with 2 other kids at home) I’ve decided to blog about the top ten best things about summer and the top ten worst things about summer.

1 – BBQs and having nice thick cut hamburgers grilled to perfection.

4 – Going for walks in the evening when it has cooled off.

5 – Going swimming.

6 – Vacations.

7 – That something in the air that makes you feel carefree.
