Summer Solstice

After the long New England winter and Spring Mud Season the arrival of Summer is a much celebrated time. Yesterday the girls and I had a wonderful day celebrating the sun and thanking God for the beauty of summer in New England.

We had fun making this sun cake for desert. We are lucky to have a field of wild flower right around the corner, so we took a walk to pick the daisy for our cake.

We had fun making sun stars to decorate the living room windows. I love how the sun shines through them in the morning. Here is a link if you would like to make your own.

Then it was dinner cooked in and over the fire pit. Roasted corn on the cob, hobo packet potatoes and hot dogs. Sun tea the girls made earlier in the day. It was yummy!

And we finished with toasted marshmallow and s'mores! A perfect day to celebrate the sunshine! We are so glad summer is finally here! Hope you had a wonderful 1st day of summer!


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
