What is summer?

fire hydrant!

I've been thinking a bit about what summer means to me. Sentimental stuff -- my own childhood summers spent at the pool, riding my bike, running in the rain. Family trips for ice cream. All that good stuff. So, I thought I'd do a little bit of a "series" about summer here on the blog, now that we're really in the middle of it. It'll be a bit of an intermittent series, because I'm also going to take Kristin's good advice (from the comments on my last post) to take some time to breathe.

Today, Summer is:

Water play. Specifically in a fire hydrant that was opened today on our street. Good friends to share it with. A perfect summer's afternoon.

So, what is summer to you?
