- Making s'mores from a bonfire and reliving the kid years (or in my case, the high school years at the Clarks every Friday)
- Climbing trees
- BOATS BOATS BOATS (you'd think there wouldn't be bugs by water, but oh boy would you be v wrong)
- The fireworks on the Fourth of July...
And picnics on Mondays with your man to soak up the summer sun before it says good bye. How is it already August? I feel like it passed in a blink of an eye, and the siblings are starting school already. My summer bucket list is embarrassingly untouched, but at least we still enjoyed the summer sunshine after work in Highland Park last night, a new favorite spot to see the city. And even though the buggies loved my legs and I'm paying for it now, the happiness that fills my heart in these moments makes up for the bites.
And then some.
