Summer Life: Shaved Ice


To say I've enjoyed the first week of summer would be an understatement. I've completely relished it! *happy sigh* My sister came and we visited constantly. Fortunately for us, our kids are pretty understanding of our incessant chatting. We all lucked out in having plenty of shops surrounding Barnes and Noble. So while my sis and I talked over frappuccinos and books, the kids ventured off to shop. On another day we spent time at the pool. Ironically, we outlasted the kids; they were asking to go home before we were ready. Ha. Finally we had to introduce them to the heaven that is shaved ice from Josh's Sno Shack. So many flavors...so little time.

Any fun happening in your world?

  2. While you spend happy hours around the pool - I'm bundled up in my winter finery - we don't have good heating in our houses and it is freezing here. Good to visit summer - that water looks so inviting.

    1. Ironically, winter is my second favorite season; fall is my first. Enjoy being bundled!

    1. Oh girl, I get overwhelmed too! They should have pamphlets of all the flavor combinations for those in line to help the undeciders. ;)
