I’ve realized that as my blog has evolved and my love of photography has taken over, I have gotten away from posting those spur of the moment, funny, candid type of photos that show my kids in their element…..just being kids:) So in the spirit of “Keeping it Real” I give you silly photos of a recent outing.
Wednesday was Nick’s last day of school and it was also my friend Ivy’s birthday. School was dismissed at 10am, so Sarah and I picked him up and then we headed South to visit Ivy and her daughter Kira. We all had lunch together and then headed to a nearby park. Nick was a good sport and really did enjoy himself while playing big brother to the two little ones. Kira just adored him and followed him wherever he went and called him by name…..it was too cute for words.
The kids had a great time exploring, but once they spotted this water fountain, the real fun began.
The girls were not strong enough to push the lever that activated the water, so Nick had to help out.
Nick decided to have a little fun at the girls expense……water flying everywhere!! When they were least expecting it, he hit the lever:) Even though it looks like Sarah is ready to lick the fountain, I promise you her tongue never touched it…EWWWW
When we finally ripped them away from the fountain they picked a couple flowers and ran circles around each other til they dropped….I snapped this one and was lucky enough to barely catch them both in the frame…..but thought it was so cute!!
I know I said I was keeping it real, but I had to sneak in at least one portrait style photo…..Sweet Kira looked straight at me with that pretty little smile and I couldn’t resist!!
So, our summer has officially started……We are planning lots of little outings/playdates and some day trips. We are not taking any major vacations this summer, but we are planning at least one trip to Cape Cod. Can’t go the entire summer without having your feet hit the sand:)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
