yesterday was the kind of day that i want to repeat all summer. here's what it consisted of (i'm not going to include church on this list, though it was also great. but it's kinda something that happens all year...):
being outside from 5pm to 12:30am
walking to joaquin park with meredith
lazing in the front yard of the taj with all sorts of friends
laughing like crazy at one friend's hilarious stories
trying matzo ball soup
scootering back to joaquin park to see the solar eclipse with a ton of people from the ward
having awesome girl talk with two of my favorite girls
sitting by the hammock with a couple boys "sharing our feelings"
sitting in the hammock with several boys talking and laughing and just generally having a good time together
wearing one of my favorite dresses from 11am to 12:30am
basically, what all this amounts to is that i spent the day outside with a whole bunch of great people having a grand old time. and, i have only identified one bug bite so far; it's on my big toe, so no worries.
this morning when i woke up i could still feel the sway of the hammock.
and that is what i want my summer to be.
