Signs of Summer

It was a great summer day!

A few things that screamed summer:

{1} Summer showers! My dad loves to tease them...and they love it!

{2} Three dresses in one day: First dress ruined by a bubble spill. Second dress soaked by a Papa with a watering can. Third dress? Got dirty at the stable. Luckily, it was time to get into pajamas by then!

{3} Cherokee's annual run-in with thistle. This year was the worst.

And that's after I was halfway through! A quick visit to the stable turned into a LONG visit. A half bottle of detangler, 3 broken combs, and an hour later, I finished. His gorgeous, flowing mane is ruined!

{4} New kittens at the stable.

They are cute! Lexie desperately wants one, and sobbed when we had to leave.

{5} A tiny toad loose in our car. Dylan's treasure from the barn has disappeared in the car. After a thorough search, we still can't find it. Problem is, it's the size of my fingernail!

{6} Racing through the grass, catching lightning bugs, in pajamas and bare feet.

  6. Awww how fun! Great summer memories, love it! Poor Apache, I remember when we first got Gunner, his tail was so bad, in such a huge dredlock, that I gave in and just cut it out. Poor guy looked pretty silly for a while, but when I visited him at my dad's a month or so ago, it was finally grown out and pretty =) (Its been about 2 years!)

    I just love the pics of the kids getting "rained" on, that is so cute! And Lexi with the kitten, too precious!
