On one hand, warm evenings that stretch late with sunshine, taking my son on vacations and quick adventures without him missing school are the best.

Eat What You Watch

Eat What You Watch

Summertime equals funnertime as so many southerners head to the beaches along the Gulf Coast during the summer months.
