Hard to believe April will be gone then we're on to May where does the time go as i know many are looking forward to good weather and fun especially after the long winter.Thought we'd share any fun things,activities you may have planned or any type of fun you may have in mind like those bbq's,especially on the 4th of July or Memorial day maybe even Mother's day which for a mom like me i enjoy a bbq and just hanging outdoors if it's nice.Anyone have any ideas or thoughts if you'd like to share please do.

Oh, yeah, I’m ready! We have a vacation planned this year, and I always enjoy the anticipation for July Fourth. My summer music library is standing by with summery tunes, and I’m so eager for the cold weather to finally leave this year.

I'm excited to get our new pontoon out! Not as excited as my hubby though. LOL!!
Also looking forward to going to the lake & being able to sit OUTSIDE. Not inside because it's cold outside, watching it rain or snow! (though I don't want to wish away all of our rain ;))

I am ready to enjoy some local fresh produce. Hoping to get my raised gardens setup soon so I can get my veggies planted. Nothing better then picking a fresh tomato out of your garden :)

Totally agree!!! I wish our garden was ready & the weather would warm up. Our spring crops are normally in by now! I ordered our onion plants last week. The rest of the seeds are just waiting!

I picked up some corn on the cob at the store last night! 1st I've seen this year. I hope it's at least mediocre. (Not expecting much....but I HAD to buy some! :D)

They are so good we put some in a bowl of milk just enough to cover them with a little bit of sugar and smoosh them up what a wonderful treat,my mom used to do that for us kids growing up.
Sounds tasty!!!

I cannot wait for summer too! Looking forward to sitting out on our deck and grilling and relaxing. Also looking forward to going to the beach a few times as well.

After the LONG winter we've had I'm looking forward to summer. Yes we all will get tired of the heat and humidity at some point but I will take it any day over the freezing cold and snow. And it only makes those "Bers Breezes" that much more special and enjoyable after a long warm/hot period in the summer.
And one of my favorite things about the summer is to close my eyes and in the hot sun dream about the Bers months to come with all the best things of the year. It's a great spot to be in...for people like us...in the summer.

I saw one house on my street is decorated for Memorial Day/4th of July. They have red, white and blue stars hanging from the top of their porch and white lights along their banisters. It looked really pretty.
