Favorite Summer Activity
We're talking about Summer this week. I love summer! My kids are home, the weather is gorgeous, and I'm no longer dealing with those nasty winter blues which I ALWAYS get.

Our favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to the park. We pull out the picnic basket, fill it with goodies, grab the doggie and head off to Mt. Pleasant. It's a beautiful area with a few very cool (difficult) hiking trails.

This is Mt. Pleasant. The rocks sticking out is where we hike up to. You might be able to see a speck of white there. Well, that's a person. LOL
My girls (from a few years ago) at the park with our dog, Cinnamon. Yes, she's sitting on the bench with them, begging for a bite. LOL That's SO not sanitary!
This is the view from the top of Mt. Pleasant. We're pretty sweaty by this time. LOL Then of course when we get home, the kids cannonball into the pool. Yes, they have it oh so rough. LOL Honestly, if we didn't have that pool I wouldn't get any writing done at all!
And as I look at that date I realize I really need to take more pictures!
So what's your favorite summer activity?
And I'd like to add that Taking Chloe is #2 on the Samhain bestseller list! Yay! Thanks to all who bought a copy!

    Carol--I'm jealous you're going to Yellowstone. Someday I'd love to take a trip out there.

    Shawna--Cinnamon is our baby. She's such a sweet dog. We lost her mama last year, but we still have her daddy. :)

  11. Anne Rainey Says:

    Natasha--It was lovely meeting you too! There were so many people there though and I didn't feel as if spent enough time with everyone I wanted to meet. Next year I'll try to do better! :)

  12. Anne Rainey Says:

    Emma and Maya--Reading, yes!! I love laying out in the sun and reading a smokin' hot romance!! Nothing better! :)
