Summer Sweetness

The first day of July.... beautiful weather, my dear hubby off from work until next week.... the children have friends over and life is sweet. I baked chocolate chip cookies last nite and made a gi-normous container of trail mix to combat snack-itis.
Pretty glass jars of all shapes and sizes line up on the counter... each with a name tag so everyone knows whose is whose.... water with thick slices of lemons floating in it is ready and waiting for thirsty kiddos....
The children made fake bird nests out of dried grasses, feathers, pieces of bark and other natural elements and then had me judge the bestest nest.... I liked the one that used an old golf ball for an egg...
They spent time blowing bubbles, chasing and measuring who could blow the biggest ones....
We caught fire flies last nite.
And had a campfire and ate smores....
This is the sweetness of summer.
This is the stuff that life is made of that I wish to collect and put in a blue glass mason jar with zinc lid...
label it with the day.... oh, to bottle a sweet day....
