Summer Fun

I've been a little envious lately of all the folks out and about doing various merry and active things, especially when they post photos.  'Cause having the fun while ALSO taking great photos is really stepping it up to the next level.  Call me lazy or whatever, but it's kinda hard to get out and do much when one has a handful of Very Young Children.  And as my children are currently six, three, one, and one, I feel that I am allowed to make some sort of excuse now and then.  Or maybe it's just that I'm no longer a spring chicken.  We are friends with a delightful young man, R, who happens to be a great cook, and is for all practical purposes, an adult.  I was less than thrilled to discover that I am almost exactly the same age as his mother.  But I digress.

I'm proud to say we did manage to work some Summer Fun (yeah, it needs to be capitalized) into our lives this weekend.  I won't say it was effortless, but it was worth it.  

Me and all four of my kids + my dad
