    My favorite summer time thing is the food! Roasted marshmallows, hot dogs off the grill, potato salad, cold beer and watermelon! Sure I can have all these things any time of year, but in the summer, outside, they just taste better!

    Hi. These trees are beautiful! I'm doing many tropical & polynesian inspired lessons with my students right now, so this lesson would be perfect! My favorite part of summer: a good thunderstorm.
