Sunday Social - Summer (Where Art Thou??)

Sunday Social

Joining Ashley today for another Sunday Social, trying to channel some summer into plain depressing late-May Sunday:

1. What is your best summer memory as a kid?
Oh, the fairs and our summer vacation with my parents. I appreciate all the times they took us to visit foreign countries. Due to our family situation, our kids won't get to travel around Europe that much, as the long vacation is always going to be spent in TX.

2. What is your favorite summer drink?
That's easy, German ice cream coffee or sun tea.

3. What is your favorite summer TV show?
Don't really think I have one. Our two favorite TV shows are over for the season (Doctor Who) or only have a few episodes left (Game of Thrones). Somehow, I consider the idea of summer TV shows weird; when it's summer, people are supposed to be outside, bbq, picnic, etc., not watching TV.

4. What is the best outdoor summer activity?
Going to the pool or the play ground of course, or one of the local theme parks.

5. What are your summer vacation essentials?
Sun screen, bathig suits (for beach vacations) or good shoes (for vacations in the mountain), a hat, a big smile!


  1. I love that you put 'a big smile' for one of your summer essentials. :)

    1. Well, thinking about summer just makes me smile. I can hardly ever be in a bad mood if the sun is shining.

  2. I'm obsessed with sun tea and can't wait to make some this summer! :)

    1. My MIL introduced me to it last year. Never had iced tea as great as sun tea. My friend brought me a box of rooibos tea from South Africa, so I'm going to try it with that instead of black tea, so the girls can have it, too :-)

  3. Sadly, my children won't get to travel as much as I did either. I am hoping we can take a family trip to Jamaica and Haiti before the kids leave to start their own lives. Right now, they are content visiting their grand parents, aunts, and uncles around the country.


    1. I hope to get this family trip! It sounds wonderful; I always loved taking the girls "home" to Seattle. Violet doesn't remember having lived there, but it is important to us having her know the place and the people who will always be our second home.
