sweet summertime

As I've made quite clear... it was a long stinking winter.
Spring proved to be a bit better, but I'm welcoming summer with open arms.
I love these long outside days, fun filled with water, gardens, suntans, sand boxes and late sunsets.
We inaugurated the season today with a trip to our local splash pad.

The kids loved it- both of them! Crazy to think that this time last year, Caters was a peanut who couldn't even crawl! Man, how things change. This year, she's the hard one. Corban was excellent while we were there. Cate was occupied initially by the water, but then turned her attention to the many diaper bags and shoes laying around... such a girl.
It was good, though.
I remember dreaming and longing for these sort of days just a few short months ago. It seemed like a glorious event that would never occur- but at long last, it's here. And we're all glad.

Happy Weekend!


  1. YES! I'm so grateful for the warm weather...something SO needed this year!
    Ps. Cate's swimsuit is adorable!

  2. Your local splash pad looks way cooler than ours! (Not that I think kids care...they are just happy to be in the water.)

    Cate's swimsuit is darling. I still have yet to buy one for Adelaide - heck, I don't even own a suit.

    Great pictures, as always - I'm thankful summer is here too.

  3. That looks like so much fun! Ahhh to be a small child again : ) Where is the splash pad located? I may have to check it out!

  4. I love love love days like that! I can't wait to do the same thing w/Elijah this year. Things will sure be changing for us soon so I better take advantage of it while I can.

    p.s. I love how chunky Cate's legs have gotten! :)

  5. What a blast! I love that last picture! So precious! :)

  6. The last pic of Hudson and Cate is hilarious! :) I can't quite figure out what's going on!
