Friend Makin' Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Last week was so busy for us. We went out a few times and did some really great things here at home that i will be posting this week at some point!
This week's task is to tell us 10 things you love about summer!!!
Head on over to Kasey's Blog to see who else is joining in on the fun!
Here are mine in no particular order!
  1. No more snow! Just rain, and I love the rain!
  2. Sprinklers, swimming pools and slip-n-slides! Last year my neighbor and I made a 100ft slip-n-silde down her hill. It was one of the best times last summer. We are hoping to do the same this year. Until then we use the military housing pools and sprinkler park (and it's great because they are free!).
  3. Subfest. Here on the Subase they have Subfest every 4th of July weekend. It's rides and all that good stuff and then really great fireworks. While we could see them from the house, we love going and sitting on the lawn and watching them.
  4. BBQ'S! We love having our friends over for good food and board games! They will be more fun since we refurnished our backyard. Lol.
  5. Vacations! We love taking little (and not so little) trips. Most of the time we plan to go home for a few weeks.
  6. Camping! We LOVE going camping! We bought all new 20 degree LL Bean sleeping bags for this year and I'm so excited to use them!
  7. I love that Justin will not be deployed this summer like he was last year. He will be gone a lot, but at least I know he won't be gone for too long.
  8. PICNICS! We go sometimes during the spring and fall but summer is the best time. We like to go almost every other weekend during the summer.
  9. The food! While I'm sure I could make some of it during other seasons....who makes kabob's on the grill in 2ft of snow?!?!
  10. Family time. We spend a lot of time together while Justin is home, but during the summer we all go outside and play while dinner is cooking and we do a lot more little day trips. Since the days run longer so does our time outside.

I think the best one on your Summer list was the fact that your hubby will be home more this Summer! Enjoy it!

Happy FMM!
