We got our patio installed yesterday and today, which means that summer can officially begin in our household! I'm definitely looking forward to a little bit of outdoor living space that is level with our backyard for LE's sake. Right now she's not a huge fan of grass, so the patio and rocks that are surrounding part of it will make a great outdoor play area for her.
We're also looking forward to having some great evening meals out there and hopefully some excellent s'mores are in our near future! For today, we'll have to make do with the few cookies leftover from the batch that I made for the workers. They are a respectable substitute for now-- definitely my favorite chocolate cookie to make, though a bit too chocolatey for a certain male somebody in this house. For the adult female in this house, they're just right. (If you are interested in these cookies... see the recipe post)
In honor of our patio and summer and all things NOT Wisconsin winter related... I created a printable that you are welcome to use! I did a little browsing of my favorite sites for summer printables, and while printables are a plenty, they are mostly themed graduation, dad, or mom as opposed to just summer.
Click on the thumbnail and then click "Download" on the lefthand side to get the full-size image. It's formatted to print on 8.5x11 and fit a 8x10 frame!
Please, printable is for personal use only!!
