15 Reasons Summer Is My Favorite

Sunday, June 03, 2012  ::  

 Lovely flowers that survive in the desert heat

Reading the Bible and memorizing verses with my great kids. I love, love, love having them home from school.  

Chad wooing a cute baby in a cute suit wearing cool shades

It took two to pull her in....

 but they eventually succeeded. 

 Daring little girls who brave the slide

Daddies with their sweet girlies 

Pool parties with friends with kids so adorable you could
 just eat them up 

Look closely and you will see the red glow from a terrible fantastic belly flop. (Mom is not a fan of the belly flop.)

 Beautiful mom and daughter moments. Both of these ladies are smart, articulate, and social. 

The pool police! Moms with water guns are the best kind!

Flying through the air over the ring! 

 Skillfully sliding and diving through the ring! 

Summer is here! 

Grilling out, late night movies, swimming pool blue, swim parties, spontaneous outings, plans to watch a dusk bat flight in our neighborhood, card games, wrestling, kids that can't remember the last time they showered, flip-flop tan lines, not waking up before 7:00, road trips, watermelon and strawberries, 100 degree heat, no homework, having friends over, making new friends

It's going to go by fast, so we will be making the most of it!

These are awesome reasons :) I'm not such a huge fan of belly flops but i'm loving the pool police suited up with water guns :) just found your blog and i'm excited to be your newest follower and hear more about the summer fun :)
ps. and memorizing bible verses with kids was my favorite one - my dad used to do that when we were little and at home and its wonderful to have some of the words of god at the tip of my tongue and in my heart whenever i ned them.
