My Favorite time of Summer
We wake to gray skies and blowing winds.
The rain pours early in the morning taping against our bedroom windows to have me awake with a smile and the roll back over and grab the covers to snuggle in.
It makes me feel as if it is cold outside. I am ready to bundle up in a cozy sweater and sit by a fireplace. It is all illusion. It is still so hot out but the way it looks thru our window, is a crisp October day.
I love this few weeks we get of surprising downpours and clouds that look so ominous.
I used to love bowling, we would go almost everyday back in St. Louis.
It used to cost next to nothing and it was fun.
Now it costs an arm and a leg and it is deep within a casino. UGH.
Just to get to the bowling alley we have to shield the eyes of our boy from wanting to jump on a slot machine or seeing striperesque women serving drinks.
It makes me miss the simple days of a dive bar bowling alley with empty lanes and quiet old school country music playing on the jukebox
Times have changed or at least our surroundings of a simple hometown has.
But we make the best of it and are having fun.
These pictures reminded me so much of one of our favorite movies Uncle Buck. It was a real flashback to remember me as a kid watching the movie and now experiencing my own little one bowling like they did in the movie.
