The best summer solstice

In addition to waking up early on Saturday with our boys, I decided to embrace everything we could this summer.

I got excited for the sun set. As I passed our local Chicago Park District pool, I noticed it was hardly crowded.

As soon as I got in the door, my oldest shared his ice cream. I spelled to my husband, "Let's go to the p-o-o-l." He agreed, so I quickly got our towels, swim trunks, diapers and other gear ready for the pool.

We greeted our neighbors outside. The local pool water was miraculously warm.

As the boys sped to the sandbox, we noticed it was about to pour. We just made it home to beat the flash flood warning texts to our phone.

It did rain so I solo-ed in "It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring" and "Singing in the rain." Next time, I'll bust out "Rain drops on roses…"

Once inside, I ordered pizza and read Mysteries of Life summer solstice post about what to do this summer such as movies in the parkWe're all excited about summer. I don't think we'll last more than a few minutes at a movie in the park, but we'll give it our best try on the perimeter for a quick exit… We may even the sunset if we're lucky...

Happy summer solstice! What are you excited about this summer? Hope we all get to sleep in tomorrow…
