Summer Snapshots Week 4 {Linky Party!!}


It's Wednesday and that means it's time to link up your summer photos!!  Last week I ended up getting strep throat {boo!} and so we did lots of napping and tv watching and wii playing, but I still managed to get some fun shots! 


It's kind of fun to see them in black and white for a change! 

Isn't it funny that what you remember being super fun as a kid doesn't always seem so fun as an adult?  I fondly remember making homemade donuts, so we added them to our summer list and guess what?  Not so fun.  After an hour of the oil getting too hot, then too cold, and getting splashed with hot oil in the process, I was totally exhausted by the time we sat at the table.  I think spending the $5 for a dozen and letting someone else cook them sounds like such a better deal!!

For the most part though, I've really been enjoying our summer list.  We are creating fun and seeking out new adventures.  It forces me to leave my big adult worries behind and remember what it's like to be a child again and that's such a good thing.

  4. Looks like you are having a fun summer. Dressing up in winter clothes in 100 degree heat wasn't on my bucket list, but I guess it was on my youngest's. *Smile*

  5. Oops...I guess I missed the point. Learned on another site linked up that we were supposed to do a picture each day for the last week. Oh well. Thought it was just any summer photo. If I feel ambitious I might do that next week.

    By the way, I shared your linky here:

    If you ever have any other seasonal or one time linkies please share them so I can post them too.
