Summertime

Summertime looks like

Baseball hats on backwards,

IMG_3486

Bare painted piggies,

IMG_3511

Shoes forgotten on the creek bank,

IMG_3523

Wonder and sparkle,

IMG_3610

Flags flown over porches, and barechested boys.

IMG_3617

Summertime smells like

Brown mud and sunscreen on stinky boy feet,

IMG_3534

And fresh green leaves in a just-climbed tree.

Summertime sounds like

Running water,

IMG_3496

“Look at me, Mommy!”

IMG_3571

And little ones laughing.

IMG_3646

Summertime tastes like

Sweet lemon popsicles,

IMG_3623

And water straight from the hose.

Summertime feels like

Wading in the chilly creek water,

IMG_3499

Cooling down in a shady spot,

IMG_3542

Pride in a new accomplishment,

IMG_3583

Falling-out ponytails and sweaty smiles,

IMG_3588

Resting on a blanket in the grass,

IMG_3566

And wrapping up in a soft towel.

Summertime is laughing, running, playing, and celebrating.

Summertime is all of us, together for good.

  1. What a great entry!! We love it and the pictures are just precious!! Looks like you are all having a great time!!!

  2. You did all of summer in one day, good job. However, I couldn’t help but notice that I wasn’t in these pictures. πŸ˜‰

    Of course, that would mean that I would have to go outside, which is something I try to avoid generally.

  3. Great pictures!! Summer is definitely all of those things! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my pics. It’s nice to see new faces coming around!
