summer lovin’

It is that time of year! Summer lovin' with #DrumstickCone

The warm weather is sweeping in and we’re loving it (or you could say “having a blast” – get it?!) Each season here in Colorado carries a different kind of beauty, but there is something about the longer evenings and the warmer weather that is truly magical! The other day we gathered after dinner and walked down to the park. We didn’t worry about a million layers or the sun setting all we worried about was keeping the dessert cold and remembering the Frisbee 😉

These people. Oh! Where do I start. Megan still can’t believe it isn’t raining all the time. I keep reminding her that last May was not normal – but it is all she has known so we just got to get another Colorado May under her belt! Abby still has traces of Arizona in her which is why she has her Patagonia tied around her waist just in case but Colorado looks good on her! She was my camper who grew up into my friend – it’s a pretty magical story. Eagle Lake is awesome like that. You can tell that my niece is Colorado born & raised by rocking the tank top & shorts – she shares a May birthday with me so we always love to talk about how we are both May babies! Greta (my sister in law!!) lives in our neighborhood so we like to make them hang out with us 😉 – nothing like brother / sister bonding time over Nestlé® Drumsticks®! Josh is our basement dweller/  photo bomber / guy with a man bun. That’s all I have to say about that 😉

It is fun to have friends & family that live near by for the last minute dessert adventures in life. I filled up our cooler with some new Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores (because SMORES!) It’s like camping but with put the tents and the fire – so it is way better for last minute sweet tooth 😉 Haha! I picked them up at our local grocery store while I was doing or grocery shopping and they were such a hit! Sunshine, frisbee, and Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores #lifeisgood What are some of your favorite activities when the weather warms up?

Also apparently I get really winky in the summer – I just winked at you four times in this post!! HAHA! I’ll end with one more 😉

    • Oak & Oats

      I totally agree!

  • Girl, you are such an inspiration! Every time I stop by your blog, I remember 1.) why I blog and 2.) why I don’t need to give up. I know this is just a post about ice cream (with SMORES), but I just wanted to say I appreciate you 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! I know, this park is just down the street and I love the mountain views!!

  • Friends to share life with are the best. I feel like my husband and I finally have a core group of people like that in Charleston. They take time to build, but it’s so worth it.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yay! So true. But so so worth it!

  • Happy birthday to all you May babies! Eat a drumstick for me! (p.s. – I can’t get that Grease song out of my head now!! 😉 )

    Yara

    • Oak & Oats

      I totally agree!

      and yes!! hahah! Thanks for the wink! You are the best!

  • So fun!! Once it starts getting warm I just can’t be outside. When I was a teacher, I used to take papers to the park to grade during my prep periods. #cantstayinside 😉

    • *can’t stay INSIDE hahaha. Oops.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! I love all the outside air I can get!

  • Now I want a Drumstick! It’s been too long since I had one. And I am SO jealous of your Colorado scenery! We visited my brother-in-law in Colorado Springs over New Years and it is seriously such a gorgeous place. I’m used to flat Florida, so seeing mountains everywhere is so exciting to me!

    • Oak & Oats

      Ah! Next time you visit we need to get together!!! And yes, I miss my mountains when we travel! haah

  • These pictures are GORGEOUS! What a blast you must have had! Thanks for sharing your joy 🙂

  • y’all always have the best times – i’m a little jealous to be honest hahaha
    i need to up my friend time with peeps – make it really count.
    (loving these pictures too! the lighting is awesome!)
