Summer juices

Happy Sunday, gorgeous!!! It is the perfect day to just hang in at home....

backyard
On Thursday it was +13...my boys were in hoodies & rubber boots playing in the back yard. Today we needs LAYERS to even attempt to shovel our driveway. Ooooo well, January is almost ova, & I know this snow will melt & that the sweet smell of spring is just around the corner. Seriously, I can not wait for my first whiff of these beauties....

Sigh. Even looking at them in a picture gets my summer juices pumping(lol! that almost sounds dirty...hehe). Like always, I have been getting thru the winter by planning our summer. We are certainly hoping to get into BC this year to do some serious camping....

And this summer I'm on misson to find some decent swimming in this crazy landlocked province. It hurts my soul that my boys love the water(as much as their momma does) and there really isn't that many places to take them other then here....
Yup, its a giant man-made puddle!
Actually, my boys really enjoy going here. I find it kinda gross, but whatever. They love it, & when it's hot in the city we always take it:) Just so odd to me that this is what my kids consider the beach. When I was Z's age I was taking my swimming lessons here....

I'm hoping to get back to PEI this summer. All 4 of us, this time(last summer, just Z & I went). But we have to wait & see how the funds work out. A family of 4, to fly during summer, is about $2,000... which is crazy really....I mean we don't even leave the country, how can it possibly be that expensive. But it is. So ya know, I'm just dreaming for now:)

Soooo, I'm going to spend my snowy day at FTLOB because it is

stopped by for comment love your pic's are so beautiful. Your backyard looks a lot like mine FULL of SNOW>

not sure what PEI is and those prices for flying are crazy were a family of 6 and we stopped taking flights together when we became a family of 4 and now just drive locally or notmore than 4 hours w/kids
Hope you can find somewhere to go swimming. My kids too love to swim.

Comment Love Day!!! I hope when you buy a Circle Scarf you'll post a picture. I promise you'll love them. I must have almost 20 now. They cost less than $15!! I get alot of Forever21 and then different places are starting to carry them. You can find them really cheap. They add a cute decor to your outfit!!

We just keep getting more snow here in New England. We're getting another 10 inches this week, yikes - but I'd lie if I said I didn't like it :)
