Lightning Bugs

Delicious leftovers + No Homework = Relaxing evening with the kids and some extra sewing time.

The weather is great this evening and we're going to hang out in the yard until the lightning bugs come out. I always love the first night that the girls see those bugs blinking and they start running around trying to catch them. Inevitably they end up with jars of blinking lights on their night stands. It always signals the beginning of summer to me and brings back memories of running around barefoot and staying up late.

Here's my niece at the start of summer last year. Isn't she the cutest?

Allison, nothing fancy in the leftovers... just homemade spaghetti sauce... our favorite! The girls and I were sitting on the deck, Bridget was reading to us and a deer walked into our backyard! It was a great night!
