I thought that yesterday was the first official day of summer: it turns out that June 22 is the second day.

And because I completely forgot to blog yesterday, today, the third day of summer, is going to be my first day of vacation.

So happy third day of summer!

When my sister and I were younger, our dad used to print out calendars for the months of July and August, and each day we would draw a little picture depicting what we had done the day before. Thinking back to those calendars, our summer days used to be filled with countless trips to the water park, bike rides and playing in the backyard with our plastic lizards, dogs, cats and horses which we generically called “guys.”

This year, I plan on going to the Cultus Lake waterslides, bike riding around Stanley Park and playing in the backyard with my real dog Romeo.

My travels as a B.C. Ambassador include Osoyoos, Princeton, Williams Lake, Kamloops, Kelowna, Oliver and Lytton (it’s going to be a busy summer).

And on top of enjoying the lovely White Rock beach as much as possible, I’d like to complete a couple of things on my 10 Year List, namely white water rafting, reading, learning to dance, watching a movie at a drive-in and trying my hand at painting.

This is going to be a great summer.
