I come from a pretty big family. With all my aunts, uncles, cousins combined we are around 16-20 just here in Montreal and Sunday’s are family time. We try to spend as much time with each other as we can and we usually have the best time specially in the summer time, my all time favorite season.
Since I live in Canada, we go through all the seasons and winter being the longest one, I have learned to appreciate summer even more. So you already know that I will take as much advantage of it as possible… I’m always in for a BBQ, pool party, long walks outside, ice cream… I just love everything about summer.
I am lucky enough to have a cousin who has a pool in her backyard and who is generous enough to invite us over from time to time to enjoy it with her, her husband and her 2 adorable children Kamil and Sofia.
Last week was a very long week. All I kept thinking about was Sunday. Hoping the weather would cooperate with us so that we could have our small but fun pool party and I could finally get some color on me. I was determined to start enjoying my summer with my family, specially since summer this year hasn’t been all that great. It’s not warm enough to go swimming and don’t even get me started on the rain. I think it has rained every day for the past 2-3 months. So when I woke up and saw the sun shinning, I was so happy. I had breakfast, packed my stuff and left for my cousins with my dad.
We were only 6 people, but it was still the best Sunday in a long time. Just being able to spend time with my cousin’s 1 year old daughter and 5 year old son brings so much joy to my life and heart. It’s amazing how being around children brings back so much memories of your own childhood and brings you back to that time where you had no worries and enjoyed life to the fullest 🙂
Days like these make me want to be on vacation from work during the whole summer so that I can actually enjoy it!
Till next time my little loves…
