sum...sum...summertime

5 minutes for mom is having a summer photo contest...

they requested pictures that depict what summer fun is for you...



i instantly thought back on this picture that i have of belly having fun with our sprinkler ball last summer. she was donning her goggles and attempting to drink the water that was squirting at her from all directions. truly summer fun in action, around our house! it was absolutely hilarious and i think that the pictures exactly captured the fun that she was having (and allow me to remember that day perfectly...you know...mommy brain...).

what does your summer fun look like?

enjoy glimpsing at ours...and head on over there to see how you can get entered too!



i had to include two more close-ups! it's amazing to see how much she's changed over the last year. look at those faces! and to think...we are still enjoying this sprinkler ball...fun AND functional...you can play and water the lawn at the same time!

What is it with kids and goggles? LOL. My kids would live in them too if I let them.

Awesome summer pictures. They really do capture it all. Glad you had a good trip - and don't worry about that guy, there's always one. I like it when we run into a grump early when we travel, just to get it out of the way!

I vote for this picture (after all she is my granddaughter!!) I'm sure every one of the moms out there are just as deserving, but my daughter Jen is doing an awesome job of mommying (especially as a "single" parent for those days dad is working). Love you Jen -- you are a fabulous mommy!!

smiling at your comment...i always love your comments! ...and NO...you're not a stalker. I just wish us blog mommies could all meet over coffee one day and watch our littles play together. I love how much Cora and Lainey are alike! ...even if we are separated by the virtual world! And, I love these pictures! They are having SO much fun!!
