Photo Story Friday-Summer

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek
Oregon has the most beautifully moderate summers of any place I’ve ever lived. I just wish it lasted longer. Summer never officially *starts* until July and then it seems to end the first part of September. Certainly not long enough for my liking. We’ve had 3 HOT, and by that I mean with a high above 100 degrees, days this whole summer. 3.

This was one of them.

    What cute smiles!
    They really are darlin kids Angie.
    Summers here in PA are short also; but not too short for me! I’m a snow bunny.

    I love Summer in the NW. When I lived near Seattle I love August and September there. I could not handle all that rain though.

    Great pictures! We had a whole week of the 100 plus days, not to mention the others before it. The past two weeks have been mild (high eighties) and oh, so nice.

    THey look like they had fun with it. I don’t wish for that hot but it would have been nice to get a few more summer days. We had a total of 7 or 8 I I think.

    great pictures! Yeah summer weather in oregon is never long enough. I could use a few more weeks just not of the 100 degree stuff.

    Your kids are too cute.

    Awesome pictures! You have a lovely family! Our summers last forever here in TX, but they seem to end once the kids start school. That is coming up this coming Monday (sniff, sniff). 🙂

    Angie, Just come visit us in Texas, you’ll get plenty of hot weather here! during the winter months we just wish and wish for snow, not too many days, but at least a couple. You know we don’t know how to drive in that stuff! Cute kid pictures! Thank you, a friend in East Texas, Pam.

    What a beautiful set of redheads you have there! Same here with the weather in the Tacoma area of Washington! Once the rain starts here it just doesn’t stop…

    let me try to guess first, it’s a game I always like about twins…
    Jacob is the second pic and John is the fourth. Well I don’t care if I’m wrong, as you know which one is who… 😀

    and forgive me for this stupid question. are they wet because of sweat since it is so hot? or they just swam?

    last but not least, wonderful pictures of wonderful kids

    Looks like fun playing outside with some water. After the hot day we are having today I wish we had a pool in our back yard.

    Carrie and Troy Keiser says

    Great pictures of your cute kids! Our summers start like that too, but unfortunately, we have had far too many in the 100s days. Then yesterday was almost cold….. weather is quick to change,huh?

    Cristin says

    The kids are so gorgeous… I always thought red heads were the cutest…

    oh…. I hate summer…. I think I mentioned that on your Fall post… I’ll rub it in though.. I CAN’T WAIT for colder weather!!

    Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk says

    Gorgeous photos. You’re rubbing it in though, as here in England we’ve hardly had any summer at all and all my photos have stormy skies and us all wrapped up in coats and gilets.
    Many thanks for your visit on my SITS day, I really do appreciate it.
