Summer makes me lazy...and happy

Summer days have made me too lazy to think...much less write.'s more of our summer in pictures (notice the definite improvement over frig cleaning...).

Nothing better than...

...waking up at 8 or 9 in the morning and lazily watching Le Tour de France, coffee mug in hand.

...spending the whoooooole day on the beach, paddleboarding on the quiet clear water, and watching my kids be brave enough to ride with me for the first time.

...making childhood memories and lifelong friends.

...having the only two-year-old who can ride his bike with no training wheels but can't poop in the potty!

...watching my kids walk around the house stuffing their new backpacks and lunchboxes with "school supplies" and random items and being sooooooo excited (especially about kindergarten!). little kindergartner proudly knowing 20 sight words and learning how to tie his shoes! the end of day, walking into the room to find The Love Of My Life reading Max and Ruby to two little boys with sunkissed highlights who are so immersed in the story that they don't even notice I walked in.


  1. Not a bad summer AT ALL! The beach has always made me feel better about a lot of things...or at least help me see the positive of them...and how about those yummy long friends indeed.
    Lazy summer for me too but it was full of special times.

  2. Sounds as if you are having a FABULOUS summer!!

  3. Beautiful pictures! Wondeful summer, am I the only one (besides you) that loves a clean, organized refrigerator?

  4. Max and Ruby are sort of like crack for kids, aren't they?? We're big fans here, too. And pooping in the potty? Way harder than riding a bike. =>

  5. LOVE the "summer in pictures"!!! My fave: those adorable boys in pajamas!
    I too love the lazy days of summer (even though I feel unaccomplished at the end of it) :o. but w/ such yummy boys WHO CARES! love ya, k

  6. Love the no training wheels! My two-year-old is almost there! Happy summer!

  7. So all of them. What a great summer!
