Summertime Memories

My mind was flooded with memories of my childhood this past weekend. Summertime memories to be exact...running through the sprinkler, eating corn from my grandfather's garden, the feel of clean, cool sheets for an afternoon nap after you have been in the pool all day and on and on.

We visited with a friend who lives out in the country this weekend. Anna Claire was a bit restless, given the fact she that she hadn't had any naps that day and it was boiling hot. To bring some relief, a tub was filled with water straight out of the hose and a tin cup was offered as a toy.


These are the memories that I hope she can unwrap years from now.

The best summer fun has to do with cool water.
She is a cutie.

Some of the childhood pictures I cherish most are pictures of me playing in a dish washing tub on my grandmother's porch. Thanks for bringing back such fun memories.
