Saturday 9: Hot Fun in the Summertime
1. Is summer your favorite season? Why?
I do love summer though Spring has always been my favorite season. I love the newness of spring and the lucious smells in the air after a long winter. But nothing beats summer when it comes to having lots of time to spend with my boys which I love and lots more kick back time without a schedule which I also LOVE! You can't beat the warmth and all the fun things to do outdoors.
2. Do you exercise more in the summer because you wear less clothing?
I definitely feel like running more when it's warm (though not hot!) than I do in the winter. But if I am training for something I run no matter what the weather is.
3. Do you enjoy tanning or are you more concerned about the dangers of basking in the sun?
I'm married to a doctor and so lots of tanning and tanning beds are no-no's around here. I have very fair skin and I don't tan easily, but do burn fast! I worry about skin cancer because I had many sun-burns growing up.
4. You are on the beach when a waiter appears for your drink order. What do you ask for?
A virgin pina~colada. And here I am doing just that in Puerto Rico about five years ago. Albino - yes...it was February! At least I'm not burnt!
5. Do you camp in the summertime?
I love to go camping. I am not a fan of tents and really roughing it, though I get the opportunity to do that at girl's camp this year. Aaaa! I love the smells of camping ~ the pine trees, the bonfires, and food cooking outdoors. We have a really old motorhome that I wish was nicer so we would go more often. It's such a great way to bond with your family.
6. What was your favorite summer vacation as a kid?
We had a camper when I was growing up and so we went camping almost every weekend it seems. I have lots of good memories of that. I also got to go to San Diego to visit my cousin Shelley nearly every year and also to Sacramento to visit my cousin's Mike and Bill. Those were always my favorite vacations just being able to spend time with my cousins and grandparents Mae and Ed. The day I got my drivers license, I went to California with them and my grandpa Ed insisted I drive almost the entire way in his snazzy Cad. He also insisted I go at least 80 mph on all the desert roads! Old habits die hard! lol
7. Do you enjoy sleeping outdoors?
Only if I am not out in the open where lots of bugs and snakes and other critters can get to me. AND if it's not cold! I love looking at the stars and hearing the sounds of nature. When we went to Lake Powell, I loved sleeping out on top of the houseboat under the stars.
8. Do you throw a summer barbecue every year?
We BBQ a lot in the summer. Nothing tastes or smells as good as burgers grilling on the barb! Mmm....♥
9. Have you ever been to a nude beach? If yes, what did you think?
Can't say I have!
