Summer Daze

Nicholas and me in the fast lane

"Mama, mama," Zachary called to me from two horses behind.

"Yes, Zachary?"

He looked at me, his face filled with brow-pinching earnestness, and speaking with his hand held open he asked over the music and against the wind,

"Where is this thing going?"

We had a wonderful long weekend filled with family, friends, food and fun. How did five days pass so quickly-- like a flash of bright color? Two weeks of summer already done.

Where is this thing going?

That is a totally cute picture. A keeper. A framer. A look-at-us-when-you-were-two photo to hang onto.

Like a flash of bright color, indeed.

Zachary's question cracked me up.Sounds just like something my little Alex would have asked me.
And thanks for sharing that fantastic picture! What joy!

I agree with Margaret and muddy mama. The picture's great and Zachary's question very, very funny. I also love your new header picture.

That is too precious for words, and summer is disappearing right before our eyes. Who'd have thunk that we were already into the second week of July?

That IS such a sweet photo! And summer is much, much too fleeting.

What a fabulous picture! That is the essence of summer - such great fun! Something we all need a few months out of the year.

What a fun picture... we were able to take our first carousel ride of the summer last week!

That picture captures summer beautifully. It is sad that we are halfway through the ride on our summer carousels.
Hope you have some more 'life in the fast lane' ahead of you this summer.
What a delight to come here and visit your blog. :)
