Here it is, the final installment of my “7 Things I Love About the Seasons” series. I enjoyed listing what I love about each season this past year – so without further ado, here’s my list for summer!
1. Vacation time!
Even though I will no longer have the summer vacations from school, I still see summer as the prime time to take a vacation, as do most people. But I wouldn’t object to a winter vacation to escape the cold.
2. Longer days.
Even though I can be a night owl, I enjoy the daylight hours more. It’s warmer and there’s more you can do in the daylight than at night. Plus it’s a good way to save on electricity by using natural light in the house (if you can).
Whether it be at a lake or a pool, I have always loved being in the water during the summer. Though I don’t nearly go swimming as often as I used to I still enjoy it. Once I get in the water, you can’t get me out!
4. Amusement Parks.
Again, I don’t go to amusement parks as often as I used to, but there’s so much fun to be had when you go with a group of friends or some close family members. I personally love the water rides… go figure!
Though I’m not huge on camping, I still enjoy going with my dad and stepmom every year. I’m hoping I’ll be able to this year. Even though I crave sleeping in my own bed and taking a real shower (not those gross campsite ones), I can’t deny that it’s peaceful to get away from everything for a few days.
There’s just something about making s’mores over a campfire that just ties up the summer experience nicely.
Some of my favorite summer memories are the cookouts my mom and I used to go to and host over the years. My personal favorites were the 4th of July cookouts at the nearby lakes we used to go to when I was young.
