LOVE summer! Summer LOVE!

I think I'm a summer girl. The lazy feeling in the air. The bees buzzing and birds chirping in the mornings. The sticky hot so you can't breath feeling. The cool of the water and the grit of the sand. I love it all! Sticky faces and muddy hands. It's all good!

We officially celebrated the start of our summer on Monday. It was such a great day! I started with a 10 K run and some yard work but then daddy said, "let's go check out the frog pond".

I know I am waaaaaay over my quota for raving about where I live but bare with me:) Just down the street is a wild park with a swimming hole and rope.
It's the stuff of old fashioned childhood memories.

We hopped on our bikes and zoomed off...okay so I'm pulling a trailer with 74 lbs of girls in it so I'm not going anywhere especially fast.

I think I see one...Oops it hopped away!

Off to the swimming hole. All I have to say about these next ones is, brrrrrrrrrrrr! I wore my suit but didn't go in. For some reason I just can't do it anymore. Kev, however, is still mostly a big kid!

And for those of you who know me and remember how clothing obsessed I was for the kids. Here is an example of why I no longer spend money on their clothes, especially bathing suits! How fun does this look?! But it's like glue...

What wonderful pictures! We're toying with the idea of going to the lake this week, and the vague inclination has now solidified into a must!
