Summer in review :: Week one.

As much as I am dying to be at a year-round school, there really is something to be said for summer break.  While it's only two months, I make some of the best memories during the summer.  Last week was my first full week to relish in the joys that summer brings.  Here are some iPhone snapshots of my first week of freedom.

 [Pool only a mile from our house...perfect for working on my tan!]

 [More and more fresh veggies from the garden!  Getting excited about pickling]

 [Day drinking is the best kind of drinking]

 [Local, farm fresh ice from from Maple View Farms in Chapel Hill, NC]

 [Beer sampling at Big Boss Brewing in Raleigh]
 [Tour de Fat in Durham, NC - Amazing festival put on by New Belgium Beer.  It's based around bicycling and will help to support local cycling in your town.  Check the tour dates here - I know they are headed to Nashville then Chicago and so on]

 [D likes to take the first round of driving TO the beach for optimum alcohol consumption while AT the beach]

 [Met a torrential downpour and had some seriously scary looking clouds looming over...but stuck it out for what ended up being a perfect day at the beach]

[I'm obsessed with beach days]

I have to agree with you on the year round schedule. I prefer being off when no one else is off! Summer means a whole bunch of kids everywhere! That's not what teachers want to see. hehe

Pool time and beach time is a must for me too!

I'm quite jealous! I wish I had summer off. But I can only find time to soak up the sun on weekend mornings! And that's not even at a beach! so sad..
