Summer Summary 2011

It’s funny because, as novel as each summer seems, it turns out they are much the same every year. Beaches, ice cream, and carousels are recurring themes, with lots of sweat, laughs, and water play in between. sketching the view from the top

    what a nice photo of you girls! If summer lasted 12 months, I would be repeating those same themes over and over, and never tire of them. Winter themes, on the other hand, I could live without.

    What a great summer you had! I love the shots. Our summer seemed to revolve around very many of same things as yours. It went by super fast didn’t it?

    Love seeing the Ambroult girls! It looks like you all had a blast! Where is that carousel? We often go to the one in Hartford. Beautiful shot of the water balloons. It takes about 1 hour to fill them all and half a minute to break them all. 😉

      Ang! That carousel in in Hull, MA, at Nantasket Beach. Ever been there?

    I love to see what your summer’s been like! And it looks like tons of fun!

    I do though, relate to what you wrote at the beginning, it can FEEL like a sameness when you blog about it. For the blog owner that is. Last winter we had another one of those startlingly white winters. Gorgeous. And some slush too. But I just couldn’t bring myself to blogging about snow lanterns and winter soups and snow, yet again! 😀

    But, I enjoyed your report from your summer!
