summer round up

ok so summer is coming to a close pretty soon and im just not ready.  if it were possible to will summer to remain just by holding on tightly to the smells and sounds and memories, believe me, summer would never end.  

this summer has been incredible because i watched it unfold through eden's eyes.  it turns out she loves being outdoors. she loves the water, she loves the sunshine, she loves the dirt and the sky and all things summer.  and so i appreciated summer in a new way this year and am looking back, savoring all the sweaty sweetness as we slip into fall.

oh, a photo round up?
don't mind if i do.
robert and eden at my childhood home, on the back porch.
this picture just says summer to me.  i love it 
finally meeting our new friends heather and ben
catching up with friends from our high school days, many baby girls later
spending time with dear friends who live far away
'hello its me eden, and im loving this summertime life'
a visit from the cross family. lots and lots of hugs
 and driving cars in eden's hair
and more hugs

all the mamas and daddys of all these littles went to ur!
lots of time spent with friends at the splash pad
thanks summer, its been real
