Yesssss. I love me an exclamation point, but I really do think all of those activities are exclamation worthy. Simple, but exclamation worthy.
We crushed concerts outdoors. So far I have been to a concert at the Olympic Sculpture Park, one at Chateau St. Michelle and attended Zoo Tunes, all inside a month. The sculpture park might be the most scenic:
The company was scenic too!
Camping! And swimming in lakes! We've done a couple of camping trips with our lovely Vanagon Brunhilda this year. Last weekend my husband organized the StHRAP, or the Seattle-to-Hood-River-and-Party, an alternative to the popular Seattle-to-Portland bike ride. My friends rode bikes, but yours truly drove the support wagon which was a far more fitting task. We camped at Taklahk lake which was amazing:
We've also done a lot of beach-hanging-out in our own home town. The beach on Mercer Island looks like this on a beautiful day:
Isn't it gorgeous? Almost as gorgeous as these ladies:
Last but not least, white jeans! I found the perfect pair of white denim capris this summer. Which means that some perfect days end like this:
Mojito, backyard, sunshine, yesssssss.
I know this is just a random smattering of awesome stuff, but isn't that how summer goes? More summer posts are sure to come (including birthday picnic pedalboating!) but I wanted to take a moment to be grateful for all the fabulous things that have happened so far. Yay for summer!
