Summer Days

This summer has simply flown by! I can't believe it's already over. Here are a few snapshots of what we've been up to lately (and why this blog has been neglected)...


Playing frisbee with Daddy

Trip to PA to visit Nana and Papa




Our second home this summer...

A little exploration of nature's creatures...
Letting the creature go (per mommy's request)
A little slipping and sliding!

New bike

Sprinkler under the trampoline (one of my favorite childhood pastimes)...

Our favorite new waterpark...


Our little daredevil Celeste jumped off the high dive! I remember being absolutely terrified of that thing when I was young... actually, it still terrifies me. But she got right in line with all the big kids, and jumped right off again and again. No fear.



If you look closely, you'll see Celeste on the high dive, and some grown-up dude diving off the low dive. :) That's my girl!!

There she goes!

This picture captures what I'll remember about summer when the kids are grown. These endless summer afternoons. All the giggling, playing make-believe (and occasional squabbles) in the backyard- their own special place in this world to run and play and discover.


Hope you had a summer full of special memories too!

I’d give all wealth that years have piled,
The slow result of Life’s decay,
To be once more a little child,
For one bright summer day.

~Lewis Carroll

Love the pictures! I sure miss you and your beautiful family. That water park looks super fun! Love the poem at the end - so true!

sounds like fun! Do you constantly count at the pool? 1 2 3 4 ...ok...phew! I feel like that was all I did at the pool for awhile! What fun memories though! I love summer.
