Friday night Ryan set up a borrowed projector in the backyard and used the shop door as a screen. It was bliss. The weather was gorgeous + the movie was funny (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
These are the simple pleasures I want my children to remember most from this summer. I want them to remember the giant bubble gum suckers they ate, the scenes where we all laughed our heads off together. I want them to remember that after the movie, even though he was exhausted from a long day of work, their dad slept out on the trampoline with them. I want them to remember how special that made them feel.
I want my children to remember that our happiest summer moments didn't take a lot of preparation or money. And it didn't really matter what we were doing, what mattered most is that we were together.
