Splendid Summer

Today Doug heads back to work. I am totally in denial as I keep pushing the fact that it will be nine long months until his next break again. I have been one spoiled girl.

But we did have a splendid summer. These photos are the ones I spoke of after our 4th of July weekend with Suzie and Brad Kimmel. If you remember, Suzie is my photographer friend and I am one lucky girl to have such beautiful "every day" kind of photos of my kiddos in their normal element.

Every time I look over these pictures I will think of this summer - the fun we had as a family, our vacation, time with friends, swimming and just spending time together. These pictures help me appreciate how precious this time in my life truly is. Doug's job will eventually take more time, our summer's will be shorter, and my kids, well, they will soon be more interested in their friends and their own activities than hangin with the fam. So this summer was just, to put it simply, splendid.

So thanks to Suzie for capturing my little family - once again - in our element and allowing me to see just how special and happy this time in my life truly is.
