Sweet, Sweet Summer

 Hello!  Thank you for popping by!  I love photo sharing on iPhones and iPads because Brad and April can share cute shots with us!  Look at PUGSLEY!  He's having a ride!
 Summer days are pool days!  CUTIES!
 AND bike days, skateboard days, scooter days!
 Good daddy days!
 Kelli and April met up at the Denver Zoo.  I forgot how great the merry-go-round can be!
 Guss-guss (Atticus) is getting so big!
 Brad's bagpipe band played in the Strawberry Festival Parade up in Glenwood Springs!  Bill said this picture brought back good memories of all of us (four kids and two parents) packing into a hotel room!  So cute!
 April's sweet gift to Brad for Father's Day was a bit of fly fishing and a seafood boil!  He LOVED this as you can see!
 Sam stayed over one night and she created this craft!  Button slippers!  So fun and easy!
 She painted.  She gardened.
 I got very hot and sweaty while planting petunias and I have more to plant.  The kitchen workers/helpers/friends did some nice things for me.  Installing curtain rods is NOT easy in my book.  Thank you, Jose!  He was speedy and this allowed me to put the quilt curtains downstairs.  I put green gingham curtains (a gift from Kelli) in the kitchen.  It's very GREEN in there!
 I have been trying to break my habit of buying shoes, but I REALLY want these Mickey Vans.  Do you like them?
 We went to the movies!  Oh, the popcorn was extra delish!  The movie was very cute, too!
 Jenny takes the girls and her dog down to the school/park.  A FOX!
 Here are two VERY cute cutie pies peeking through the kitchen "window".  SMOOCH!
 And the cutie pies' hubby and daddy giving Birdie some encouragement.
 My neighbor's flowers are glorious!
 We had fun on Saturday night.  We celebrated Father's Day at Jenny and Scott's.  Bry had a swing ride with James and his adoring fans.  Bottoms up!
 Yesterday we went to the pool.  HEAVEN!  I love blue water.  I could stay in the pool all day.  The kids were fun and it wasn't crowded.  
 Score!  Otter Pops are only 25 cents!  James shivered quite a bit (lots of clouds) but he LOVED his treat!
 I love the cool feeling after the pool.  My skin feels comfortable and I am deliciously tired.  Summer is sweet.
I found this coloring page online.  Cute, huh?  It's fun to color, don't you agree?
My sister is coming!  She's on her way (driving with my niece).  She'll be here for three days and I can't wait!
The librarian from my school called yesterday and she asked me what I've been up to.  FUN, that's what!
I hope you're having fun, too!
My brother continues to heal.  THANKFUL!
Dip your toes into a bit of summer today!

Farm Girl said...

What a nice way to start my morning! I love all of your wonderful family/life/living photos. It fills me with such joy.
Such great summer photos.
I hope you have lots more sunny weather with lots more swimming and lots more otter pops!
Have a lovely day!

I think the dipping of summer toes I'll do is to step out the backdoor and water a few plants. It's TOO hot out there, and I was out in it yesterday, so today I'm staying home :)
Looks like your summer is fabulous, Pom. Lots of grands having lots of fun! I do love a cool pool. We don't have one here -- just the river which is NOT clear and blue haha :)
Those shoes are adorbs :) I can give you no good advice about buying yet another pair, however. Just click back to your blog and look at them every so often, and perhaps that will suffice?

I love seeing all the kids! Brings back some good memories! Thanks for sharing....

Precious summer fun, all...

Oh where did you find that printable coloring page, on the net??? It does look like fun. I used to love to color, when I was a kid.

Back in the day, the sunday papers had drawn illustrations of womens' fashions. And I loved to color them. ,-)

Along with all my other coloring, of course.

Fun memory.

Fun. Yay for fun. Look at all those cute kiddies. Little James, nothing but adorable. Don't you love your new kitchen. all new, fresh, and clean? Stay cool. They say the heat is on.

NanaDiana said...

Those kids are so cute! I do remember those days of our four kids crowded into one hotel room when we traveled, too. lol Fun though-looking back.
Your family is just darling and I love all the great photos here. Hope you have fun with your sister- I know you will. xo Diana

I love the Vanns, you should definitely have some - they are so fun.
I just bought new shoes - they are silver sparkle plastic jelly shoes with a heel (from Shuh). Lovely pictures of your beautiful family.

as always a fun post, and super cute photos of the kids. True summer photo's. Oh to be young and have a carefree summer........

Gumbo Lily said...

Your answer to the librarian was just right -- you're having FUN! The kids sure are and I know you're right in there with them. Keep us young, dontchathink?

I've been dipping into summer by dipping my scoop into the Neapolitan ice cream bucket. The grands love coming over for ice cream cones and I like them too. We might all go swimming on Sunday!

Lisa Richards said...

Wow! Tons of family fun! That does look like a fun coloring page!

Julia said...

Love your summer photos and I think I'd like to be one of your grandkids. They look like they're having so much summer fun. I always wanted to go on a Merry Go Round when I was a kid but never had the opportunity. Lots of little summer delights and cute rosy cheeks. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet grands! My 16 year old grandson came by on the weekend and he had brand new Vans ( no Mickey Mouse though). He was really happy about getting them; he bought them in the U.S. I imagine they were a better price than here. What fun you'll have with your sister. Lucky you.

Fat Dormouse said...

Lots of FUN things going on in the Pompom household! Have a wonderful summer enjoying your kids and grandkids. They are all cutie pies!

GretchenJoanna said...

Perfect title for this post - sweet indeed.
I am going to the pool this morning, but it's an indoor pool and there are no popsicles to be had there! I will have to come home for one of those.
I hope you get your Mickey shoes. <3
