Spring is here!
The snow is gone!
What’s that green stuff?
It’s our lawn!

Our coats and hats
We’ve tossed aside!
Let’s grab our bikes
And take a ride!

We’ll play some catch!
And run from bees!
We’ll play some sports
And skin our knees! 

Today’s the day
We’ll have some fun!
See you later,
I gotta run!

Summer is rainy

Summer brings hot air balloons

Summer has rainbows


Summer is fun and never a bummer...

And in Erie every Summer gets even funner.
