    We have our own pool, and I love the first day of the season that we let the dogs and kids in. Living in GA, we have to winterize the pool during the late fall and winter, and then all spring we wait for the temperature to rise enough for safe swimming, which usually isn’t til May. The dogs get to go in a little sooner because of their fur, and I normally do that when the kids are in school to keep them from being disappointed! This season we really kicked off the summer with a graduation party for my son!!! We’ll remember that day forever 🙂

  • Diane Anthony

  • Ruth Dupchen

    Since we moved to Delaware my favorite summer event is going to the Delaware State Fair for the 10 days that it is here. Never in my life did I ever want to go to a state fair but when we moved to this state we tried it because it is only about 20 minutes from our home. There is just so many things to do and everyday has some new things to see along with some of my favorites. Best of all I love to watch the pig races. First they race the big fat slow pigs, then the little quick baby pigs. You get to pick a pig to win. It is so much fun to watch and listen to the stories the announcer tells about the pigs. Next I enjoy playing the Family Feud each evening where everyone who plays wins a prize such as a tee shirt, hat, or a whole shopping bag of things if you are the longest lasting person to not be eliminated. Looking forward to the fair!
