Today is forecast to be almost 90 degrees! Hello, summer!

To celebrate, I'm carrying my new parasol, which is a blinding white umbrella with a frilly trim around the edge. It's awesome. As I was walking to the T this morning, I passed a woman pushing a little 1 year-old in a stroller. The kid exclaimed, "mumema!" and his mom said, "Yeah, it's an umbrella!" She promised they'd work on "parasol" next.

What are you doing to celebrate summer?
