I feel like singing the Summertime Love (Loven' the Summertime) song all the time. I love summer the most. I will never complain about the heat or humidity. I love how it stays light until 9pm. I just want to be out of the house doing stuff all the time!
I get a fail on blogging (old news) however no matter where I go people (who I know, or know BF, or know someone I know who's shared the blog) approach me asking what the deal is with my blog and why I never update it anymore. It's crazy to think people look forward to what I say. So of course you all know the deal... I have a new job and can't blog at work.
In the evenings I play with Gav, sorry I don't blog... but you get it.
ANYHOW here's a quick update of some summertime stuff I've been up to this past month or so...
Through my work we get free tickets to our town's minor league baseball games.
Gav and I have a little trouble sitting through all those innings...
Gav goes to day camp and one of their field trips was to Putt Putt. He had so much fun that he told me to put the address in my Garmin and we had to go... so we did the very next weekend. It's only $6 for unlimited golf, games and drinks on Saturdays... um best deal ever!
Play dates! Gav's best friend is 1/2 Japanese and you all KNOW my love of Hello Kitty/everything from Japan. So while Gav was playing with his friend, I had some time to hang out with the mom and she was super thrilled to show me her bento box collection. It was a play date for me for sure!
Independence Day! 'Merica.
BF and I were very lucky and got to see fireworks 2 nights in a row! Charlotte used to have the pops orchestra for free and I would always go with my friends and my step-mom and sister. I'm talking middle - high school (ok yes and I'm lame, but it was super cool). anyhow then charlotte got all fancy and they charge something like $10/person to go to the Pops. lame. and I hadn't been back.
WELL... BF's neighbor had free passes to the 3rd of july pops with fireworks AND vip parking. I was sooo excited to go.
The 4th of July my sister came to BFs house and we went to this festival thing but it was all raining so she left and we ended up going back later. So more fireworks! Then we got back to BF's and Gav and I had gotten some real (small) fireworks from a random parkinglot vendor and had fun setting those off in the street.
The next day we went bowling! Gav was adorable.
There's a really embarassing video of me from bowling but it's on facebook. Not even on my page. But if you know me/BF IRL, go to his page. You won't be sorry. It gets real weird real fast.
Then... the next day we went on BF's aunt and uncle's boat on the lake. Yay!
Here's Gav and I on the lake super up close shot.
.... and here we were last night. Gav will be 7 in just a couple weeks and we've already started on his party!
here's the Summertime Love video and lyrics if you want to sing along...
[Verse 1] It's Summertime and you know what that means. Gonna head down to the beach, gonna do some beachy things. It's Summertime, it feels just right. Gonna gather all my friends and we'll party through the night.
[Chorus] It's Summertime luh-uh-loving. It's loving in the Summertime. It's Summertime luh-uh-loving. Oh baby, why can't you be mine?
[Verse 2] It's Summertime and I just can't wait. Gonna call you on the phone, gonna take you on a date. It's Summertime and I hope you like steak. Gonna take you to a restaurant, gonna eat out at the lake.
[Verse 3] It's Summertime and when dinner's done. Gonna take you to the club, gonna dance and have some fun. It's Summertime and when the end is near. Gonna put you very close. Whisper, "let's get out of here".
