Lazy Days of Summer


When we woke in the morning and the outside temperature was 82F, and the pool was 84F, we knew it was going to be a great day for swimming. Mac was working, and Verne was out of town so Collin, Abigail, and I spent the entire day playing.



When's the last time you spent the entire day in your bathing suit? Can't remember? Then it has probably been entirely too long! I generally sit on the sidelines until I can't take the heat anymore and then I get in.




Swimming. Badminton. More swimming. We tore ourselves out of the pool to eat supper, and then did our chores before bed.

That sounds like a great day! Making memories with the kids is awesome.

Don't you hate it when that birdie gets caught in your racket? Oh, we have had so much fun with badminton in times past.

Sounds like fun! I have spent a lot of time in the pool this year--usually I sit on the deck and watch--and my kids love it! Funny how little things mean so much to them. :)

Absolute bliss. :o)

Love your bathing suit, the fact you wore it all day, the fact you love your children, the fact you did chores before bedtime, etc.etc.etc. Love it all, Tracy.

Sounds like our camping holiday on 43C days. In and out all day long just to stay cool enough.

I miss seeing those barns! They are unique to America, lol. I loved see them when I was there (strange I know :P )

What a wonderful day with your children... I bet they enjoyed themselves immensely...

We didn't open our pool this year. This summer the weather has been such that we didn't really miss it UNTIL THIS PAST WEEK!!! Whew, it was a HOT ONE!

Glad you had such a great day with your kiddos.

Ah, perfect, perfect kind of day. I love swimming - and miss our pool that we had at our house back East.

I love the lazy days of summer.

We've finally gotten cooler weather and rain today. If we had a pool, that's where we would have been too, last week.
Your swimsuit is very pretty. I'm still looking for a new one. I guess it's pretty late in the summer for that, huh.
Enjoy your last days before school starts. We plan to.
