Summertime and the livin' is easy~

These lazy days of Summer have been awfully nice. We've been blowing bubbles...


Mr. Will plays on the backyard playset often and took time out to show me
his 'big muscles,' because you need them when you're hanging off the rings and trapeze.


And he also likes to be an upside down boy(complete with his sister's sunglasses the same way).
(this was ALL his idea )


I had to show off a little something beautiful that I actually cultivated in our backyard...

And the vehicles get lots and lots of use in the Summer months.


One of our favorite parts of Summer is the food... fresh blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, sweet corn, tomatoes, fresh green beans, and a local favorite... Door County (Wisconsin) cherries. Yum!

(presently Will's fav fruit is blueberries)

Oh my gosh Gail, that picture of Will on the scooter is priceless! I can't stand how cute he is!

Glad summer is treating you well! I am now craving a bacon and tomato sandwich, toasted, of course!

thanks for sharing this summertime post. And, I love the tune!

I'm lovin the first picture of Grace. She looks "cool" in her glasses! And your fruit pictures...always a fave!

Isaiah is loving blueberries right now too. Yesterday we had blueberry pancakes and he was upset that we used them all. Off to the store for more!

These are wonderful! Love the one of Will upside down with the glasses and Grace blowing bubbles. They epitomize summer fun!

Sounds like your summer is going well. Mine is too. So glad the baptism is over. Never realize how much work involved in planning a party. We really did have a great time. Lori took some wonderful pictures. I have to get the originals so I can post some on the blog.

Love your post-processing. What have you been doing lately? Do tell... ;-)

Looks like a fabulous summer!!! I love these days too and we only have one more month and the kids go back to school! Yikes! Makes me sad to even think about it.
Have a great week Gail!

Well if this isn't summertime livin, then I don't know what is....HOW CUTE!!!

The kids look like they are loving every minute of this season. I love the cool white shades....especially when worn upsidedown:)

I am on the biggest blueberry kick right now....last weekend I made homemade blueberry muffins and this weekend I made blueberry pancakes...they were SO GOOD!!

Enjoy your week~

I'm living vicariously through your summer since we are in the soupy fog until end of August so until then I will pretend I'm blowing bubble with Grace and riding scooters with Will. :)

Casey said...

Love summer!! And those pictures are stunning! Capture the spirit of the season!

Dita said...

Sweetie and I loved these shots. She told me what the kids were doing in every picture and when we got to the blueberries she tried to pick some...they're HER favorites too!

Looks like a dream summer vacation for the kids. And the mom too!
