{summer splash days begin...}

It is only June and the Florida summer heat is kicking it up a notch. I honestly don't want to know what the middle of August is going to feel like! It's already close to miserable to be outside in the middle of the day without a water activity being involved.

That being said, I went for a run Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. and it was still 90 degrees. Call me crazy?!?!?! I'm not even sure how to describe how I felt when I was done. Instead of chugging a water, I think I may have felt better if I would have just dumped it on my head.

Back to splash days... our park playgroup decided it was way too miserable for playground time so we headed over to the local YMCA's pool and splash pad. What a fun day we had.

I got there and quickly sent my girls on their way. Avery was frozen in her tracks for the first 10 minutes. I know that she liked it... she loves water... but I think she was just trying to figure out what she was supposed to be doing. A little help from big sister and she was well on her way.

Just look at this sweet bunch of girls!

They We all had such a good time. I think us mom's could have lasted another few hours but the kiddo's were exhausted. We are ready for next week already! My girls liked it so much that I had to bribe Delaney out of the pool and Avery ran through the splash park in her dry clothes.

A few more of my favorite photo's of the day...

    I meant to ask you at church tonight what you girls are up to Monday afternoon. We are planning to go to the Hilliard Library at 1:30 to see the magician at the summer reading program if y'all want to join us for some learning.

  6. Carrie-- you can join us anytime.. even though Allie can't walk :) ... little Sara Gale and Allie are about the same age! I just made plans for the beach this afternoon with Dana and Darci..or we would have loved to come to the magician show.. I had no idea about it.

    i sent you an email to the link on your profile....were you missing things of allie's last night at church... it was all in avery's bag :)


About Me

My photo
I am a photographer focused on infant, child, family, maternity, couples and senior photography. I shoot on location, at the location of your choice, in natural light.

I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember - anyone who knows me can tell you that. There is just something about it that makes me smile. After the birth of my first daugther, Delaney, my passion for photography ignited. 33 months later came her baby sister, Avery. I have had my camera in my hand every day since. There isn't a moment I want to miss... the tiny toes, the drool, the smiles, the simple things. My girls are my inspiration for everything. You will often find me in the background snapping those natural moments in life that I don't want to see people forget. Sometimes the best photographs are the ones that are unposed and candid. I love the feeling of capturing such sweet moments and will strive to bring your memories to life in a way that you love.
