June 8: In Search of Summer

What would summer be without a dip in some cool water? Especially in muggy, humid Virginia, it is quite transformative to have a shady, close-by place where you can go for a quick dip.

I will not lie: I have been frequenting the pool just about every single day with my two wee ones. They love it, we all cool down, it's a wonderful way to pass a couple of hours, and it tires us all out (in the best way possible). One day we'll live next to a flowing river, or beautiful lake, or (can you imagine?) expansive ocean. But I'm not holding my breath: in the mean time, I'm just as happy to stroll down to the pool and enjoy one of summer's treats.

Searching for summer has been lovely-- and I do hope you will check to see what others have found through the button to the right. I feel like I have found it here. What about you?

Beautiful, and soo cool!

We have a wading pool (free!) close by and we love to head over there!

Those are beautiful shots. Looks so cool and refreshing. Isn't it great that you can walk down there!

I found your blog via Annie.
Glad you have a good pool to frequent and that you have the gumption to take two! We're waiting for it to heat up before we go. Soon, I'm sure.

Great shots-

I love getting them so tired they go to bed early!

So glad to see I'm not the only one! Lady Ren, yes, collapsing from exhaustion is certainly a gift of sorts, isn't it?

Ahhh, I can't wait to get in some pool time. Our parts of the states have definitely been seeing some heat. Just perfect to hit the pool up!
