The summer in a nutshell...

This is only the first part of a two-part series because, as you know, summer isn't quite over yet. It's breaks are squeaking and there's smoke coming from the tires, but it hasn't come to a full and complete stop. And I haven't been on vacation yet.

Here are some things that have gone/are going on around here this summer...

Lots of swimming.




The celebrating of the birthday of a country and a healthy dose of pyromania.



Lots of baseball...




and baseball watching, replete with concession stand goodies....


and under the bleachers drama!


Rain everywhere but here.



The beginning of a love for gardening...



and some hard-learned lessons on the subject...




and the promise of something sweet and juicy.



Some naps in weird places.



And last but not least, my kids, hungry all day long, giving me a break only when they go to sleep at night. School days, when are you coming back?

SO funny, I was going to post a recap summer too. I just got too tired after Joel switched the page on me to rewrite the words and add the other pictures. I will try again later. Great pics, I love the sparklers!

Pam - you crack me up and I am always forgetting the name of your blog and then I have to go back and find an old comment to find your blog. Is it okay if I link you on my sidebar?

Yes, please do. I sent you an email, then remembered how unreliable you always say it is. We'll see if you get it.
