Sweet Summer











Summer is here and we are feeling the heat! We have been spending a lot of time at the beach these days. Autumn, Kesa and I love the water and Serafina loves the sand. I am such a water baby. I could swim around in a big blue lake for hours. We are lucky to live only 10 minutes away from a nice sandy beach and that Grandma and Gaga also live on the lake. Since I used to live on the lake, I would literally spend all day swimming or playing on the beach as a kid during the summer. Even today there is no place that I would rather be during summertime. We had a great Canada Day long weekend, which we spent every day on the beach too and visiting with family.






Lately we have also been enjoying so much delicious fresh fruit. Peaches, watermelon, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple. It seems that every time I go to the store I end up buying more fruit because it is all that any of us really want to be eating during these hot days. We can only go out for a walk early in the morning or the evening when the sun is not yet high in the sky. I also managed to sneak in a run a couple of mornings early (around 6:00 am) this week before anyone was up and Craig had to leave for work. It was so beautiful to watch the sun rise as I ran down the highway. Ironically, the song 93 Million Miles by Jason Mraz came on my random playlist, which made for a quite remarkable moment. FYI a great post-run or workout food is oatmeal with fresh fruit and hemp seed! I am addicted to eating this these days. So delicious!

I’ve also been enjoying this sweet angel face too. Today she actually let me snap a picture of her. Usually she is too on-the-go to slow down and sit with her momma.

(Excuse the backwards dress, her sisters dressed her). 🙂


I hope you are all having a great summer too! What sweet summer things have you been enjoying these days?
