Photo Story Friday-Summer


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek
Oregon has the most beautifully moderate summers of any place I've ever lived. I just wish it lasted longer. Summer never officially *starts* until July and then it seems to end the first part of September. Certainly not long enough for my liking. We've had 3 HOT, and by that I mean with a high above 100 degrees, days this whole summer. 3.


This was one of them.

Summers here in PA are short also; but not too short for me! I'm a snow bunny.

Great pictures! We had a whole week of the 100 plus days, not to mention the others before it. The past two weeks have been mild (high eighties) and oh, so nice.

THey look like they had fun with it. I don't wish for that hot but it would have been nice to get a few more summer days. We had a total of 7 or 8 I I think.

VE said...

I remember that day! Perhaps we'll even get some more summer since it's been RAINING FOR A WEEK!!! Not that I'm bitter...

MomOf3 said...

Awesome pictures! You have a lovely family! Our summers last forever here in TX, but they seem to end once the kids start school. That is coming up this coming Monday (sniff, sniff). :)

Pam said...

Angie, Just come visit us in Texas, you'll get plenty of hot weather here! during the winter months we just wish and wish for snow, not too many days, but at least a couple. You know we don't know how to drive in that stuff! Cute kid pictures! Thank you, a friend in East Texas, Pam.

Jacki said...

What a beautiful set of redheads you have there! Same here with the weather in the Tacoma area of Washington! Once the rain starts here it just doesn't stop...

Neil said...

Gorgeous photos!

Migraine Mom said...

Gorgeous, as always! I love their hair!!

Cecily R said...

Just LOOK at those adorable kidlets of yours!! Those pictures make me want to come and play with them yesterday.

latree said...

let me try to guess first, it's a game I always like about twins...
Jacob is the second pic and John is the fourth. Well I don't care if I'm wrong, as you know which one is who... :D

and forgive me for this stupid question. are they wet because of sweat since it is so hot? or they just swam?

last but not least, wonderful pictures of wonderful kids

:)

jenni anne said...

you really do take great photos, angie! i guess it helps that your kids are so dang cute.

Laura said...

Where is Grace? Ha ha.

Gorgeous photos! Really.

Heather said...

Looks like fun playing outside with some water. After the hot day we are having today I wish we had a pool in our back yard.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Great pictures of your cute kids! Our summers start like that too, but unfortunately, we have had far too many in the 100s days. Then yesterday was almost cold..... weather is quick to change,huh?

Cristin said...

The kids are so gorgeous... I always thought red heads were the cutest...

oh.... I hate summer.... I think I mentioned that on your Fall post... I'll rub it in though.. I CAN'T WAIT for colder weather!!

Alexandria said...

Wow! You have some really beautiful children.

Alexandria said...

Wow! You have some really beautiful children.

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

Gorgeous photos. You're rubbing it in though, as here in England we've hardly had any summer at all and all my photos have stormy skies and us all wrapped up in coats and gilets.
Many thanks for your visit on my SITS day, I really do appreciate it.

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Oh your kids are so sweet. That little Emma looks just like her mom, She is adorable in yellow.
