An Amazing Monday + Taste of Summer

Yesterday was hands down, amazing! With temps in the 70's, yesterday was a taste of what summer days are going to be like with a three-year-old and let me just say, I don't want summer to ever end and, it hasn't even begun yet.

Don't worry, this morning we are back down to 50 degrees. The warm weather didn't last, as it usually doesn't this time of year but, the taste of summer was all I needed to get all sorts of excited!

Yesterday morning, temperatures were in the 60's and the sun was shining. I started the morning out by hanging some of our washed clothes on the line outside. Hanging clothes on the line is one of my favorite things to do when the weather gets warmer! Every year I start out thinking that I love the tradition of doing it, until I smell the results later on when I take the clothes off of the line. Hanging clothes on the line just smells like summer-time.

Around 10:30 a.m., Piper and I met my friend, Mindy, down at the park with her little newborn, Leo. Mindy's sister, mom and grandma were at the park, too. Mindy's sister has a little boy, Everett, who is 2 years old and Piper has a lot of fun playing with him! The two kiddos were cracking jokes as they were swinging next to each other for (not an exaggeration) 15 minutes. It was super cute and funny! They would take turns playing at the park and then wanting to go down to the creek to throw rocks in the water. 

It was a really good morning that lasted until about 1:30 p.m.!

After a long morning at the park, we came back home to eat some lunch outside, under the umbrella on our stone patio. Oh, how I've missed dining out on the stone patio! Piper really missed it, too. She stayed under the umbrella for a bit longer while I added some more clothes to the line. 

Around 2:30, we went inside to take a break from the sun. Piper watched a show while I washed some dishes with the window open, breathing in some more fresh air.

Nick got home around 3:30 and we all jumped in the car to get some propane for the grill. When we got back home, I added a few more blankets to the line and started taking down the dry clothes. I got chicken ready for the grill, put some fries in the air-fryer and heated up some mixed vegetables for dinner. Around 5:00, we were all eating dinner on the stone patio. 

After dinner, we started to prune the apple tree. Our poor apple tree has been so neglected. We haven't pruned the apple tree since before Piper was born so the leaders were super tall! We got the apple tree about halfway pruned before it was time to go inside and give Piper a bath. 

We ended the day with that feeling of a day spent in the sun and we all slept good thanks to all of the fresh air we got. We've had a taste of summertime and now I'm ready for the real deal! Hurry up, summer!
