Summer Loving!!!

I'm patiently waiting for Spring to arrive. I'm tired of seeing the bare trees and brown grasses. I'm looking forward to scooting around on our Razors and teaching the kids to ride bicycles. The twins and KK got their first bikes with training wheels back in October. Unfortunately, we have not had much riding time.

On this cold blah day in February, I received some much welcomed mail, so much so that I want to wish Spring away (not really, but close). It was our lease agreement for a beach home in the Hamptons this Summer. I wish we could stay the whole Summer, but I'm thrilled that we are staying a little longer than normal.

I grew up in NYC and from the time I was 10yo, my family spent the whole Summer in the Hamptons. We even made the 1.5 hour trip every weekend throughout the school year. That was actually a drag when I was in high school. My parents still have their place there, but unfortunately our family of 5 has outgrown it. We've been fortunate, though, to find reasonable rentals within 5 miles of their home.

So, this is what I'm looking forward to!!!

Oh, pictures of summer!!!! That looks so nice! Why does summer only last for a few months and winter lasts for 8 months? Hope your kids are feeling better!

How wonderful!! That would cheer me up too! Right now it is snowing outside my window, yes snowing, and I am ready for a DC/VA spring!

Have a wonderful day!

That sounds like so much fun...I've always wanted to go to the Hamptons!
I've been dreaming of green grass and warm weather too. I can't wait for spring/summer!

Summer will be here soon! I am jealous of your Hamptons summer, I grew up in NYC and there's really nothing like it here!
