Endless Summer: Taking it Outside

July 29, 2013

How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic and we spent most of it outside, soaking up this endless summer sunshine. It didn’t hurt that I got a head start on the weekend with my friend Julia in the city and we had an amazing night out. She truly is the hostess with the mostess and put together the best patio/pub crawl…we paced ourselves very well…and I’m thinking she should start a blog, non? Funny enough, she’s the one who inspired me to start writing this little blog! I spent the rest of the weekend with my man, lots of friends and our kiddos (of course!). After two days by the river in Yarrow, I must admit that we’re all dreaming about the country life, just a little bit! But city or country, with weather like this I think just about everybody is doing what they can to spend most of their time outdoors. And I can imagine plenty of sparkling conversation happening in these fresh air spaces…

What outdoor fun have you been getting up to this summer? Brad’s got 5 days off coming up and we’re hoping to make a last minute beachside getaway happen. If we can’t swing it (I was far too tardy on booking a vacation rental, doh!) I’m pretty sure we’ll be equally happy with beachy day trips closer to home. There’s nothing quite like British Columbia in the summer! Enjoy your Monday :)

Your pub crawl sounds really fun! I also had a great weekend at my old school friend’s wedding in the countryside – it was wonderful! :)

I just love those outdoor patios!!! Every nice evening we’ve been having here in Vancouver, we are out on the patio sleeping, reading, making homemade pizza.. anything.. we are trying to take advantage of these summer nights! (they dont last long!)

Your too good Lily. We are so fun together and you know when your stomach muscles ache the next day from laughing that it was a night to remember. Xo

Sounds like you’re making the most of our gorgeous weather, Richele! Mmm, homemade pizza sounds like a perfect idea!

Everyone deserves a good pub crawl now and then, Tracey :) Hope you get yours asap!

I always go to the lake but my cousins bought a firepit for their patio this summer and we’ve spent many nights out there drinking, making smores, drinking, laughing and chatting, drinking, dancing, watching outdoor movies or their tv (that they plug in out there) while drinking……
