Summer has only officially been on the books for a week, but we’ve been experiencing the fruits of school being out and warmer weather for several weeks. We’ve already taken our (first ever) family Summer vacation, so I guess it’s all down hill from here. We’ll have to create our own fun at home and around town. I found several blog posts that still have me excited about the season, and I decided to put them in one easy to retrieve location – a summer link round up. I hope you find something that interests you, and will inspire some Summer fun. Please leave your favorite Summer link in the comments.
