My favorite thing about summer is AIR CONDITIONING! I really dislike very hot weather and it seems each year summers get hotter. However, there are lots of positive things too like watermelon (yum), outdoor eating, swimming and corn on the cob fresh from the vine. It may be hot, but I wouldn’t like to live anywhere the seasons didn’t change.

My favorite part of summer is watching my grandchildren and our friends grandchildren play in the water at the lake, some fish all day long, some like to play with the floats others like to swim but they all like to eat. My dear friend their grandmother furnishes all the food. What a blessing she is. I love the Cool breezes, starry nights, birds singing, the Humming birds flying over our head and the love.

My favorite part of summer is of course the sunshine! But most of all my granddaughters are not in school so I can help them with their sewing doll clothes everyday! I love helping them learn to use our sewing machine and hand sewing! Their favorites are anything for their American girl dolls!!

My favourite part of summer is not wearing all the layers of clothes needed to stay warm. It really only gets super warm (30C) for about a week or two here so we look forward to that time as there have a few years lately that our summers haven’t been very warm at all or for only a day or two. Global warming seems to have missed my neck of the woods!

The clothing is beautiful but not any that can really be worn in the throes of a Texas summer. too much cloth! sleeves and layers.you will die in it in central and southern Texas. Temps are in the mid to upper ninety and even into the low 100s with 40 to 50% humidity to 60% humidity in certain areas closer to the coast areas. I love the early part of summer…during the transition between spring and summer. We have officially converted to summer this last week. That time period is when it is nicely warm and you can feel the beauty of the weather, but cool enough at night that you can get a breath of nice cool fresh air. In Texas, the spring is the best time of the year…

I love summer and wish we had it year round! I enjoy my flowers, the birds, longer hours of sunlight, and most of all the warm summer days! No worries about driving on snowy days and slippery icy streets! I love that I can go outside and don’t need a coat or boots! Our Canadian summers are too short and although All the seasons have beauty, summer is the BEST!

I look forward to summer because of the swimming. The only time I am not in pain is when I am doing laps or playing with my granddaughters in the pool. I am not a fan of the sun so we wait until the sun is off the pool to go and swim for three hours. I love it.

Kinda silly but my favorite thing is how easy it is to leave the house, i.e. I don’t need a coat, scarf, etc. I live in Michigan and it gets cold! Love all the seasons though.

My favorite part of summer (well, and spring) is the birds and animals in the backyard, along with the flowers and new growth. I notice it more this year without having distractions and staying at home. My most favorite part of the summer is the longer daylight.

My favorite part of summer is taking my brood to the pool. Everyone comes home happy, relaxed, and tired! I also enjoy the slower pace, there is no nightly rush to do homework, cook dinner and get everyone to bed by their individual bedtimes.

Well…..You aren’t going to LIKE my comment, but I am NOT a summer person. I am a FALL person. I don’t like sleeveless. I don’t like shorts. I don’t like to SWEAT! I don’t like HOT. I don’t like the HUGE air conditioner bills. SORRY guys! I DO love the sunshine, but we get that here in GA most all year ‘round! SO, guess I am the ’DUD’ on the comments section! HA! I DO love Pixie Faire/Liberty JANE any time of YEAR!

I love getting up to sunny warm days in the summer. It’s exciting to see what the day holds and how the grandkids are going to involve their dolls in their activities. They must be dressed for the occasion. Thus, I must have Pixie Faire patterns to get them ready for swimming, camping, shopping and cook outs. I LOVE PIXIE FAIRE!!! So do the grandkids when they get new outfits for their dolls.
