Summer fun!

Really? I love summer. Always have. How can you not love summer, you know? Carefree days, beautiful weather, the sun, and swimming! And of course, cold beverages sitting on a patio, visits to the park, and family vacations.

I'm already starting to freak out about winter - we get hit hard with winter in Canada, and it seems like we only get a few good weeks of really great weather to enjoy. So, of course - we enjoy the good weather while we can!

We are never inside. We spend our days swimming, which the boys love. And just enjoying the beautiful outdoors.

Here's how we've been keeping busy these last 2 weeks:

A little bit of golfing...



LOTS of swimming...



Strawberry picking...







Touring Ottawa and enjoying frozen treats...



And feeding the ducks!





I'm hoping that summer lasts for a really long time, because I can't bear the thought of cold weather right now! Here's hoping for lots of sunny days ahead!

Great interview Loukia. Is this where I'm suppose to leave a comment in order for you to win a necklace? Good Luck :)

Looks like someone has been having FUN in the SUN!!

I want a popsicle but after I run through the sprinkler a few times!

Christy said...

I love all those photos - especially the one touring toronto! Here's to hoping you have a nice long summer this year!

Loukia said...

Christy - actually, it's just here in my hometown of Ottawa! We're hoping to get to TO at some point this summer, though!

How fun! I'm hoping to pick some strawberries when we got to Milwaukee in a few weeks.

Looks like fun! I know what you mean about Canadian summers. It's like I'm afraid to blink in case I miss it and it's winter again.

I was just thinking how I dread winter. Can it just be summer forever?

Kristen Andrews said...

You are such a good Mom! Seems you all are always doing something fun;)

I am hoping for an Indian Summer this year... so we can enjoy more summer like weather than what we usually get!

I LOVE the golfing pic of D ... he is totally adorable in that photo (as with all the pics of your kids!!)

I know what you mean! It's the little things that make me happy - like warm rain, burying my feet in sand at the beach (one more month till I'm there!) and my personal favorite, no coats, socks or outerwear of any kind for children (seriously - this shaves a good 15 minutes off of the time it takes to get them out the door!)

Yes, definitely enjoy it while you can. Of course you can always come on down to my "neck o' the woods" once it gets cold there. We stay warm til practically November!

amanda said...

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Me too! LOVE LOVE LOVE summer!

Girl, I HEAR YA!!!! I am a warm weather girl myself. I can't imagine what Canada is like...we had a really hard winter last year and many referred to it as a "Canadian winter"...it was rough!

Have a great day!

That looks like so much fun! It's so freaking hot here in Texas that it forces us to stay INSIDE! Ugh! It's like your hard winter - we have hard summers!

Jen r. said...

It looks like so much fun and so warm and sunny! Thanks for sharing your photos! Jen

I'm trying to remind myself to enjoy summer, because where I live the 80 degree temperatures are losing the battle. The upper 90's are currently winning the war and that means the low 100's are never far behind. Ugh.

However, this post is an excellent reminder to enjoy the moment when we get the chance! Beautiful pictures!

Elisa said...

So fun! And great pictures of the boys!

I love summer too - though I like winter clothing better ;-)

but the beach? I love the beach, and the sun, and swimming in the Mediterranean... that's what summer means to me, as I usually spend my summers at home... not this year though :-(

I hope you have a lovely lovely summer before winter comes back!

What fun things you guys are doing! I'm a cold weather person, but I do love all the time we spend outdoors in the summer.
