1. Henrietta – We’ve been having a great time commuting to work, going to the grocery store, stopping by the pub…

…riding on the rail trail…

Day 184 - Sunday, July 4th 2010

…and along the river.

2. The Lowell Summer Music Series – This was taken a couple of years ago but you get the idea – all of the shows are held at lovely Boardinghouse Park and picnicking is encouraged.

Tonight we’re heading out to see Amos Lee, I have a great picnic menu planned, the weather is perfect, and I am looking forward an evening full of fun with friends!

3. Hydrangeas – I just love them!

Day 183 - Saturday, July 3rd 2010

4. Brimfield – I am heading out to Brimfield next week with friends.  It’s so much fun to look at everything and everyone!

5. Swimming – Nothing says summer like a nice dip.

6. Making ice cream – I made an amazing batch of Blueberry-Aged Balsamic-Vanilla ice cream last week and it was amazing!

What about you?  Are there any summer things that make you especially happy?
