We lived in a house on a lake for several years (7 to be precise, I miss it). In this old house, we didn't have A/C. In Indiana, this can be very bad during certain times of year. This particular summer was hot & humid...too often. This picture is one of my all time favorite shots. It's simple & just very sweet. The day was so hot, all of us pretty much just sat around in our underwear. The blue boxes were new, they each got one for their toys. They weren't just boxes, though. Anyone who has kids can tell you those are cars, boats, houses, forts, caves, oceans, and whatever else their imaginations turn them into. We still have those boxes & once in a while, I let them empty the contents & take their car for a drive. Well, Kyle won't anymore because he's a ... teenager (I say teenager with the corners of my mouth drawn down in a comical super frown). They do grow so fast.
Join the fun!
