Summer Nights

So, Mikey and I went on a drive last night at around 9:30 in the p.m.  We had the windows rolled down, sunroof open and music up... and of course Tucy in the back seat.  While we were driving I remembered this summer night that Ethan and I drove up to Farmington to pick up a camera.  It was a few months after I had bought my Cabrio and he hadn't driven it yet.  So, I let him drive.  It was about 10:30 or 11 at night and there weren't many people on the road.  We had the top down and the music cranked.  The reason I remember this so vividly is because while we were on the Freeway, Ethan had this idea to look up whenever we went underneath a bridge.  So, for the entire trip that's just what we did.


Then when Mikey and I were driving around last night, I looked up when we went under a bridge and it brought my right back to that time.  

Then I started thinking about when I lived in SL and how Mikey used to come over to our house in his old 4Runner with the music blaring.  We'd all sit out in the front yard for hours chatting and hanging out, then go on a drive in his 4Runner to find a 7-11 that none of us had ever been to before.  Those summer nights when the low is 70 degrees.  Summer is good times and I wish it'd stick around all year.

that's some unadulterated nostalgia right there. I just have to say I completely agree with everything you've just said. Woot for summer!

So, you know what I am going to say already. At least I have a feeling you do. If it were summer all year round I would be so upset! The only good thing about summer is dusk on. Until the sun rises again that is. I do appreciate a few things about summer, such as longer days. But, there is something to be said for a peaceful snow fall while wrapped in a poofy blanket. Honestly.

I have great memories of summer too. We always did the late night Taco Bell thing. We were soooo cool. Now that we live in the land of eternal summer, I miss the chill of the fall and the soft flakes of snow (ah how we romanticize.) It's fun to see your blog. Lucy is adorable.
