warm summer sun.


We are loving nature walks on those summer days where the insects buzz so loudly it reverberates in our heads. Walking through prairie grasses so tall we can't see where the trail is going.


Trips for ice cream where we can ride tractors and listen to the silence of the country. Riding bikes every single day. Visiting farms for fresh peaches, apples, and veggies of every color. Playing at the beach, and going home with sand in everything.


Parks and playdates with friends. Playing T-Ball in the alley with the neighbors until the sun goes down. Sticky cool treats at the bait shop, where sweets and ice cream are across the room from night crawlers.


Bug hunts where we find amazing insects - bees and wasps and praying mantises and beetles of every color. Watching the birds eat every single sunflower seed from the flowers in our garden.


Laughing and playing and laughing some more. Being silly.


Playing with friends until the sun finally goes down - tired and happy. Life is good.

Sounds like the best kind of day--the type we have often, too. Even my older kids sometimes still fall asleep in the car, covered in sand and salt or mud, but that's how I know it's been a good day, right? Great photos, as always, Denise.
