Aloha Friday #86

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What’s your favorite thing about Summer?

    Waking up super early ’cause the birds are singing!

    I LOVE almost everything about summer! Although the heat and humidity in July and August in Virginia gets really snarly – ha! LOVE waking up early in the morning and seeing the sun and the flowers and all the bird noises – just feeling so alive!! Happy week-end to all!

    The smell of the beach!! Always good, but even better in Summer:)

  5. 55

    Being outside with the kids and not having to bundle them up so much. It gets so cold here in Minnesota during the winter (and fall and spring). I love being able to go outside without a jacket. I especially love the foods like BBQ and fresh fruit!

  6. 56

    Typically I’d say the warm weather, the travel, the family parties, trips to the beach – but this summer is so different from normal ones for me – we won’t be doing family parties, we may not make it to the beach much, the warm weather is kind of killing me at this point of the pregnancy and travel? We just moved 1,000 miles away – that’s travel enough for me. So I’ll say – lemonade, ice cream and grilling (inside) – what better to celebrate a season than food when you are pregnant?
