Wordful Wednesday-Summer Begins

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see “WW” inΒ  my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.


Isn’t it funny how odd “action” shots look when taken out of sequence?

    Wow. I seriously want that pool. Just not the pool maintenance… and can I give the pool back when it starts snowing here? Pools are no fun in the winter in Utah.

    My kids have their last day of school today, and then OUR summer begins. They are crossing their fingers that the pool passes come in the mail todaya. Driving by the pool everyday without being able to go in it is just about killing my kids.

  79. 81

    Those are fun pictures! I have a hard time not getting them blurry when I take pics like that.

  80. 82

    That looks like fun! I want to come over and play! My parents just put in a pool last summer and I totally thought we would be in it more than we are. It’s just not practicle to me to try to take both little one’s over there by myself. Afraid something might happen.
