June 21 marks the official start of summer and the official start of my favorite time of the year. Yes, it’s partly because it’s “watermelon season” (even though I always say that “watermelon season” is all year), but also because I’m an outdoor person and summer gives me a chance to get outdoors without the rain of the spring and the chill of autumn.
Of course, summer also means baseball season is in full swing. My calendar this summer is kind of crowded, but I like it that way.
Camping trips, golf outings, weekend vacations, baseball games (watched and played in), they’ll all be there. I’ll also be welcoming my own little watermelon in August. And by “watermelon,” I mean a baby boy or girl. It’ll be our first, and we’re not sure if it’s a boy watermelon or a girl watermelon, but either one will be pretty sweet!
