From the crazy amount of photo sharing I’ve been doing on Facebook this summer, I’ve given a mistaken impression that’s we’ve been “away” much more than we actually have. We had one main trip this summer for a week to California to visit with family and friends. Outside of that we were mostly here hanging by ourselves with the exception of a lovely visit from my parents. We managed some time at the park, swimming, berry picking, water fountain splashing and a trip or two up the road into the mountains to escape the humid weather. It’s just that I took *alot* of pictures while we were out west and it took me the better part of the summer to edit them- so I think to others it probably looked like more playtime than it actually was. That said- here was my favorites from our time away. it was a lovely visit with lots of donuts, family, fresh flowers, friends, sand dollars, beach walks & play time, The Huntington Garden in LA, cousin bonding and a reunion of three very special sisters:
I suffer from the same photo-mania while away, but I don’t care, because I love taking photos! I do wonder whether my kids will ever go through the thousands of photos I took of their childhood.
PS sorry for delay in posting, i was running way behind today, and couldn’t get to my computer until now.
I love your photo montage. It looks like you had a wonderful time away. It’s great to be around extended family during the summer, even if it’s just for a short time!
It looks like you have had an amazing summer whether close to home or far away! The smiles say it all!
Such happy photos! It’s impossible not to smile while looking at them.
