A Spoon Full of Sugar - Here Comes Summer

Time for another fun challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar.
This week we are thinking of sunshine, flowers, maybe even the beach as we have the theme of "Here Comes Summer!".
My Summers revolve around keeping cool at the pool, Boy Scout camp, music lessons, backyard BBQ's, late nights and hopefully this year, my children's favorite, catching Fire Flies! (we always let them go of course).
The weather is already Summer like here in Texas with 90's every day so I went with a cooler color palette and a soft Summer image, I hope you like her.
