Your Week in Viral Videos: Best of summer keeps getting better

(RNN) - Say certain words, and you automatically think summer. It is perhaps the one season that resonates with our senses more perfectly than any other.

It's difficult to narrow down just a few of the great things about the middle three months of the year, but let's try.

It's hard to feel bad for him because it turned into an unbearably cute moment.

Best of: Reasons kids need more constructive activities

There's just no adequate way to describe what you're about to see.

So, umm, here you go:
