How We Do Summer

We’ve been enjoying summer despite the heat. One way has been to run through the sprinklers. My boys love swimming at the pool, but I couldn’t get them interested in the fountains at parks or in the sprinklers at home for the life of me. One really hot day a couple of weeks ago, though, I finally said enough was enough. We were getting in some sprinkler time! Once the boys saw me running through they had to join in. And they had a blast! (of course). I took a break for a couple of pictures, but I’ve been trying to take less pictures and make more memories lately so I only got a couple.

What’s another way we enjoy the summer? Good ol’ fashioned bat and ball in the front yard, chalk, hide and seek, and bicycle riding are favorites around here. I loved this picture of the boys. Elias was chasing a ball he had hit across the street, and Simon was chasing after him on the trike. It was such a perfect picture. Cape flowing behind him, riding his trike without using the pedals, and a polo with only a diaper on underneath. Leaning forward, ready to take on the world. Classic Simon.
