To Summers End

Jace had his second soccer game on Saturday and then afterwards we went for an afternoon family drive. We ended up at Tilden’s Bridge – a perfect accidental destination spot. We soaked our feet in the Snake River, skipped rocks and enjoyed the peaceful scenery. I love where I live.

Summer is nearing its official end. And as a 2012 summer wrap-up here’s snapshots of a ton of summer-ish crap I meant to blog about, but never did:


Sisters || I look back at these pictures and my heart hurts. Even though it was only a month or two ago, my baby girl has grown. Her little cheeks are chubbier and her hair more blonde. I’ve pulled 0-3 month clothes out of her closet – they are too small now. But, although she is no longer my itty bitty newborn, there is so much to love. Her smile tops the list.


Monkey Do || In the middle of July my sister-in-law, Anna, and her family came to visit. Fingers crossed that we make it their way to visit next go around {they just moved from Virginia and are now Disneyland’s next door neighbor}.
 
 
Hired Help || This is my kid’s way of helping Uncle Jake do yard work.
 

 
Parade || On site at my towns 24th of July festivities.
 
 
Summer Sleepover || On the trampoline. Marlee and I opted for a bed indoors, but we still stuck around for the glow sticks and other late night trampoline fun.
 
 
These two || No other words needed.
 

 
A Farwell Party || In August Oregon took away the Walkers. Oregon is so dang lucky. And Idaho is going to miss them terribly.
 
 
My town || Edson Fitcher, an afternoon well spent.
 
 
Green on Green || A treasure in the grass.
 
 
Freezer Corn || Did you know freezing corn is a science? Well, it is. And there is no better place to learn the tricks of the trade than at Zeb’s Grandpa Bingham’s house. The Bingham gang have it mastered, and they didn’t even complain when my kids and I crashed their party. Also noteworthy, Grandpa Bingham’s garden is nothing short of a masterpiece.
 

 
With Cousins || We didn’t get to do our annual sledding trip last winter due to a lack of snow. And somehow summer got away from us without our annual Lava Hot Springs trip {I’m blaming it on the whole having a baby thing} but we still got together a number of times over the summer. Most recently was the end of August. I love this family – and so do my kids.
 
The end.

I can't believe summer weather is almost long gone! I am a wee bit excited though!! Looks like you did alot of fun things! Thanks for coming and joining us for corn, except it is Grandpa BURT! But I totally know you know that, and it is just "the summer was crazy and I have a newish baby and my brains arent working correctly" talking, but all us Binghams did the corn at our awesome Gpa BURT's house!! HAHA...just had to give ya crap!!

Grandpa BURT ... dude, I know that. It was late at night, and I was tired and a little bit crazy, apparently.
