It went by in a blur, faster than the speed of camera, fueled by s’mores and ice cream. The photos aren’t good but the summer visit was!
Two small boys and their mother. Playgrounds and beaches and music. Long walks, badminton on the lawn, grilled food, the first local corn of the season.
Time on the water, and in it.
And quiet moments to replenish energy.
What summer should be…one to remember!
But it’s so easy to forget summer, when winter arrives–maybe these posts I’ve been doing will bring it all back for me, when I need it!
Yes, it’s nice to be able to look back on your posts and see what you were doing months or years ago. And your photos are so marvelous…really brings the post to life.
It’s funny–I was so disappointed in the photos because they’re mostly blurry and cock-eyed. But, when they’re all together in the post, they do create a sense of the action and energy of those days.
Sounds like a wonderful summer!
It has been! I hope yours has been great, too!
Quintessential summer! It is flying by, so important to take a little time to capture these fleeting moments of summer…..sounds like you have it nailed down. Doesn’t it do your soul good to indulge in these kinds of activities, and let’s face it ,s’mores help everything! I feel slightly comforted by the fact that we still have the month of August ahead of us….still some real summer left. Yes, we will be spending most if it working the farm and nursery, but a few dips in the lake and maybe a plateful of s’mores will be added to our days. Glad you are enjoying summer, Kerry!
Yes, it all comes down to August now! We have a lot of fun to fit in still, and I ALWAYS look forward to autumn. Pretty soon, we’ll begin to feel that nip in the air . . .
So summery; so much fun, except maybe for the cats. 😉
Oh, the poor cats! But their lives are back to normal now and we have nice memories of the week that was!
Love your photos but there is still a month of summer. And then the summery days if Sept.😊
Yes, August awaits! But, maybe because my career was in academe, I always feel like August is short and goes by really fast!
Ahhhhhh, summer’s sweetness remembered……………….
i’ll be looking back at these posts when the winter winds are blowing!
Yup, we have to do that!!!! LOL!
Looks like everyone had a wonderful time, except the cat. The boys must have slept well after all that activity.
The cat has recovered nicely now that the boys have gone home and, yes, the only time they were quiet was when they were sleeping–such energy!
Well, it is not over here, lol. El Sol is burning a path to glory and destruction. That little boy is a doll – lucky you.
Summer isn’t over here either, although we just got a break from the heat. I always feel like August goes by so fast, though.
We haven’t had our local corn yet, love your photos, especially the little guy on the beach with the watering can 🙂
That little guy was so happy, watering the sand! He amuses himself well. I hope you get your corn soon–it’s all I want to eat at this time of year!
Beautiful photos, to remind us here in the UK that there really IS a season called summer, if only we could find it this year.
I think you must’ve had some good weather, maybe in early July? My friends were in Cornwall and couldn’t believe their luck with the weather! I hope August gives you all the summer you could wish for!
I’ll move to Cornwall then…….
I loved the photos Kerry and think it right and proper that they are not staged. For you were having a great time and having fun. I too love the toddler and the photos where your beautiful ginger cat knows not where to go to escape the torment! I had a cat who used to totally disappear when visitors arrived, then as soon as they had gone he would appear from nowhere. He arrived with an enquiring look on his face- as if he was saying… HAVE THEY GONE?!
I found out that staging photos with two little boys is a lost cause–just have to catch them on the fly! The ginger cat eventually came around and was quite friendly!
These photos are priceless, Kerry. aaaahhh…. summer when the kids are young….
Thanks, Cynthia! Those two boys live quite far away from us so we had to pack a lot into their visit!
Beautiful photos! I can tell it was a special time for everyone 🙂
Thanks–the photos are pretty wonky but they do reflect the energy and spirit of the days we had together!
Looks like a good summer. It’s better to have bad photo’s and good memories, than the other way around!
That’s a great way of thinking of it!
Ahw, what lovely, sweet photos. Sigh, I really enjoyed it! xo Johanna
That’s nice to hear, Johanna! Family, outdoors, good times–what’s not to like?!
heartwarming memories,they do get a little blurry over time.
Yes, and now, the winter, I can go back and re-visit the post and re-live the moments!
may i please come visit? i’ll bring peaches…
Sure, and we love peaches! 😉
Looks like you’ve had a wonderful summer Kerry! Is it getting cooler already?
This summer has been great! And there’s still more to come before autumn. This week is scheduled to be a little cooler–pretty soon we’ll all be talking about feeling fall in the air!
It’s still quite chilly here by Perth standards. Am glad we put the wood fire in last year. In a month or so we should start to get some spring weather 😃
You captured summer in a post.
Well done and thanks for the smiles
Your summer has been a blur, too! Thanks for making time to stop by here!
