Five Minute Friday: Beautiful

Five Minute Friday
It's Friday and Fridays are beautiful as writers gather from all around the world to join Lisa-Jo Baker in Five Minute Friday.

Today's word prompt: Beautiful

Summer is beautiful. With its sunshine and bright blue skies, with the thermomater hitting the 80's and 90's. With flowers in abundance and gardens bursting with produce.

Summer is beautiful. With sprinklers and bathing suits, water balloon fights, with freeze pops and dripping ice cream cones.

Summer is beautiful. With family reunions and visiting the grandparents, time with the cousins, and swimming in grandma's pool... a week too short.

Summer is beautiful. With friends over to visit, with bonfires and S'mores, with glo-sticks and games of volleyball ... or croquet (if only my property was flatter).

Summer is beautiful. With iced coffee and trips to the air conditioned library or the kids movies for $1 at the movie theater. With trips to the park and playdates.

Summer is beautiful. With lazy mornings and late nights. With Fourth of July celebrations... picnics, fireworks, all things red, white and blue. With baseball games and apple pies, and fresh berries...

Summer is beautiful. Summer is Fun!
