So I guess what I'm getting at is that since we (teenage you and myself) must be in the middle of an argument about whether or not you may paint your bedroom black - or some other hideous color - I promise to at least consider it instead of flat refusing you. But you have to promise you'll paint it back to re-sale beige before you move out!

A few weeks ago Haley and I made a list of all the small things we want to do during our summer. It seems to involve a lot of walking and eating of cold treats, but so far we've done pretty good at incorporating many of them into our summer routine. What's on your every-day-summer-fun list? Here's ours:
First-thing morning garden walks to see what is new/blooming/ripe.
Lunch, dinner, and breakfast alfresco.
Splash park and swimming pool.
Friends over to play in the pool and sprinkler.
Friday morning Haley and Mom Starbuck's dates.
Bake lots of fruit pies.
Mid-morning get-Jake-to-sleep walks.
After-dinner watch-the-stars-come-out walks.
Family hikes and camping.
Farmer's market (lots and lots).
Friends over to BBQ and make s'mores.
Bike rides to "downtown park" on Sundays.
Make popsicles: apple, cherry, orange, strawberry, raspberry, watermelon
Homemade ice cream.
Watch cloud shapes.
Be a Running Family.
Ride on scooter.
Create sidewalk art.

Even I can see that my Super Nose is getting out of control here...there are many more - chlorine from the pool, watermelon, light-scented summer perfumes - but I will restrain myself.
What scents mean summertime to you?
