Labor Day will be here in two short weeks!! Can you all believe it?!?! I can't! Before you know it we will be getting ready for Halloween and then Thanksgiving and Christmas will be following behind real quickly. That being said, this week's topic is:
"My 5 Favorite Things About Summer"
1. Detroit Tigers Baseball
I LOVE the Detroit Tigers. Absolutely love them. I generally will try to make it to at least one game during the summer. I missed last summer and haven't gone yet this year, but I still have a month left. Hopefully I will make it! My Tigers started out strong this season, but after the all star break they fell behind a lot. Still love them though and there's always next season!!
Who doesn't love a good bonfire. Sitting around the fire on a cool summer night with good drinks and great friends. LOVE IT. Gotta throw in some s'mores every now and then too of course :)
Whether it is in a pool, lake, ocean or beach everyone has got to go swimming in the summer. I haven't gone down to the pool as much as I should have this summer, but I did go swimming in Lake Michigan, which is pictured above, this summer. I am pretty sure I could have spent all day in that water. LOVED those waves!!
Fireworks are always so beautiful. The place to go on the 4th of July where I live is Bay City. Actually Bay City has 3 days of fireworks on July 1, 2 and 3, but they always put on such a great show. I was lucky enough to make it out to the big 40 minute show on July 3 this year and they were very good. One of these years I want to make it to New York City to see their July 4th fireworks. Hopefully soon!!
5. "Up North" trips
Here in Michigan, the place to go for summer get aways is "up north". I honestly have no clue where "up north" actually starts, but everyone seems to head there in the summer. The "up north" place I go to is beautiful Higgins Lake (pictured above), with my bestie Becca. Becca's family has a cabin up there so we try to take a weekend trip up there every summer. It is so peaceful up there. Everytime it's time to go home I dread it. The last few times I have been there we have taken a trip to Traverse City to the casino. I never win anything, but it's always a good time. We of course have to hit the little ice cream shop before heading home too! It was too cold up there to go swimming this year, but hopefully next year we will be able to!
Well there you have it. My favorite things about the summer (in no particular order). What are you going to miss when summer ends??
