embracing summer

we've been enjoying summer around here. lots of playing outside (i don't know what x is doing... self-inflicted time out?)

quinn has been living in her swimsuit

picnic lunches in the backyard

lots of searching for bugs

quinn LOVES to be outside (her bug-fear has even been okay)

we've even been attempting bike rides on the grass

hendrix has learned to use the hose. i think he's thinking "you're really letting me do this?"

and sweet veda is putting up with all of it :)

Oh my... Veda is SO cute. Your backyard looks so nice! Summer is the best!

Mom said...

Oh the joys of childhood and summertime fun! I love how Hendrix is always wearing boots and Quinn is always wearing a swimsuit or tutu (or crown). It looks like your tree hit a growth spurt.

Those trees are HUGE! Those cannot be the ones that you just planted... are those the ones from before?! I love the shade!

I don't remember if I commented on this one.... I LOVE how Hendrix is always wearing froggy boots. And how Quinn is always wearing a swimsuit (the same genes as her Aunt Julie). I've been using your terminology every time we drive by the ice cream places and embracing summer with a cone. Backyards and tricycles and lunch on a blanket seems like heaven.
