Although I am in New York City working right now and the weather is nothing like what I am used to in sunny California, a girl can still dream. Daydream, that is.

Moms, what do you love about the summer? I can’t wait to do the fun activities that one can really only do when the weather’s nice.

In addition to my bicycle rides, park visits, and day trips to the beach with Easton, I’m going make an outdoor theatre in my back yard with bean bags and create a drive-in theatre and camp out! I will get some yummy snacks, comfortable clothes, candles and of course some fantastic DVDs to start the party…

Here are some of my favorite family flicks — what are yours?

I’d also have to say that some of my favorites are Despicable Me, Megamind, Ice Age, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, Kung Fu Panda, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Surf’s Up, all the Barbie Movies, Alvin and the chipmunks and Open Season.
