I Love Spring and Summer. The days and longer, the air is warmer. It's so wonderful. Here in Washington State the weather can be so wet and cold most of the year, it's hard to be motivated to do much of anything. But in the summer it's different. The time has come to ride bikes, swim, camp, hike and do all kinds of things outside. I love walking through the farmers market to see all the fresh fruits, vegetables and all the beautiful flowers and plants. My favorite thing to do in the summer is go to the beach. I love the sound of the waves, the warmth of the sun on my back and walking thought the warm sand as I'm helping the kids collect seashells and explore the shore. The other great part about summer is the food. In the summer there are great things like strawberries, watermelon, and the great squashes. My kids love to go to the farm and pick fresh blueberries. They always end up eating as many as they put in their buckets. I have a challenge for you. Try out some new things. If you haven't gone out for a hike in the sunshine, find a pretty place and take a walk. Instead of the ussual hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, how about grilled Salmon Steak with grilled asparagus and grilled pineapple slices for dessert. Serve something like this at your BBQ and all your friends will be begging to come back again. Spend this Summer exploring and trying new things.
