Bowl of sunshine

An ideal summer day would consist of just a few simple things;sunshine, laughter, strawberries and if at all possible a cuddly puppy. I think that yesterday set the bar for summer days pretty high. There was a group trip through a bike festival to pick up picnicking supplies then to the park that was like a bowl of sunshine in made of leafy shade trees. Sitting in the high un-cut new grass reading while new friends and old ones surrounded me playing frisbee, talking and eating was exactly the kind of relaxing day I dreamed of in the long cold winter. Plus, someone brought their little sweetie-dog who lounged in the sun and poked around at the watermelon with us. After the sun went down I put my camera away and we drank on the roof and played Kings Cup and danced to our favorite songs from college. Summer is now un-officially here and it feels like a good one in the making.

  8. All of these pictures are so summery and awesome! They make me want to have a picnic! It's definitely summer already here in Georgia, so I might have to get on that before it's too hot to be outside comfortably. Cute red shorts too!
