Another post for the 30 Day Journal Challenge.
Day 5 Prompt: What are your summer traditions. We all have different traditions for each and every season right? What are some things that you do as a tradition each summer? If you don’t have any traditions, maybe you can create some this summer!!
Summer has always been a special time for me. Growing up, it was when most of my family members had their birthdays (Dad’s was today, June 5th. Mine is the 12th. Tracy’s is in August). We spent almost every summer of my child hood at a camp site every weekend for “camping” (My mother’s version of camping, a fully stocked trailer with A/C and full bathroom and kitchen). It was time for friends and family, for hobbies and doing it all outside.
Since moving out, and my parents’ deaths, Summer has changed a bit. Now it’s when we celebrate our wedding anniversary. It’s time for BBQ’s, baby showers, weddings and catching up with friends and family. We don’t have the trailer anymore, so we normally try to make it out to a cottage. This year, Pat’s work wife is hosting us in July for her birthday celebrations out in the Sharbot Lake region. Also, we spend a ton of time with Pat’s other family, Jan and Cathy. They have a big beautiful pool in their yard, so we tend to get a lot of swimming in. The last few years, I’ve made a point to stop by one of the local fairs. Not sure if that’ll continue this year, but we’ll see!
