No matter that the calendar says summer starts on June 20th, it really starts right now with the three-day weekend to celebrate Memorial Day. I don't think there's much better on a hot summer day than fresh-squeezed lemonade...with an umbrella for shade!
My oldest is home from college and my youngest just finished his junior year of high school. None of us work tomorrow - so I put my foot down and insisted on family time. We're doing barbecue (my husband uses a meat smoker - it's heavenly all day long!) Sadly, the weather forecast is fairly stormy so my fantasy of a long walk, maybe some frisbee or badminton, then sitting on the deck probably won't come true. But our beloved Colorado Rockies baseball team (who just happen to be at the top of the league!) play in the afternoon so we may settle in to the lounge chairs with the game on and probably play some cards. This may not seem particularly exciting but usually it seems like we are all running in different directions so I plan on enjoying the time together - no matter what we're doing!
