Summer Favorites

I just wanted to let you know that I may be posting a little less often the next couple weeks...I have my family here with me and then Allie and I will be making the drive back to Seattle with them!  Yay!  I am so excited.  Which leads me to share some of my summer favorites:

Being in Seattle:
The weather is so perfect and the air is so fresh.  I love being at my parents' house, going to Snoqualmie Falls and other hiking, boating on Lake Sammamish, eating at the Iver's on Lake Washington, and so much more.

What is more romantic than watching the sunset with your one and only on a summer evening?  Often we do this while Allie is playing at the park and in these moments I couldn't be happier.

Being in the Water:
Lakes, rivers, beaches, you name it, I love it.

Road Trips:
As long as they aren't longer than 5 hours...and especially love them when I am with my family and we can talk the whole way there.  We got lucky with Allie, because we have taken her on numerous car trips of 3-5 hours and she does SO good.

Call me crazy, but I love change and I love moving.  This is obviously done easiest in the summer, so that is why it is on this list...I love getting organized and redecorating a new place. 

Taking Naps Outside:
This is a little hard to do in an apartment complex, but at least once or twice the chance will come up and I will take it :)

What are some of your summer favorites?

Hey Jess...I love Seattle too. We are going the 1st of September and then board a cruise for the inside passage trip, then back to Seattle for a few days. I could easily live in the Pacific NW...anywhere. xx's
