I think that it is the combination of summer freedom, lovely weather, fresh delectable fruit, casual entertaining & a hint of nostalgia that proves enjoyable for all.
For the past few years we have been blessed to join in at the festivities my brother-in-law and sister-in-law so lovingly prepare. The city parade proves as the mid-day highlight which when well planned, can be quite enjoyable.
Proper sun wear
and a safety lesson are pre-parade necessities.
A grand entrance from above seems to be quite the thing to get the party started.
a little old west...
the boys worthy of respect
and some local Heros.
The rest of the day found itself full of water play, adventures in the playhouse, a little friendly game of croquet and peaceful lounging. And as much that may go into such perfect days, there are a few things that make it all worth it...
The hope that this feeling of joy and wonderment will live within him forever.
Hoping you all had your own wonderfully memorable day as well.
