Ah. To be young again. Or at least, young at heart.

SOe said...

That´s fun! I´m afraid the summer has already left Iceland - today and yesterday were rainy.

Doug said...

Icy, I'd settle for damp.

Kyahgirl said...

That captures the summer spirit perfectly! :-)

How funny! Before I even saw your word "exuberance", that was exactly the word that came to mind when I saw Hunter cavorting in the water!!!! Nice way to beat the heat! :D

Tom & Icy - yes, well said. I think we all have a heart to be young again... it is just realizing it that is the uphill battle...

SOe - but the thrill about it is, that you have one of the most desirable places to experience on the earth - so summer, winter, fall or spring - it is all good.

Doug -surly you have a hose...?

Laura - where you been girl? Fabulous to hear from you - have missed your doggy face :)

Kelly - I wish you could have heard the squeaks and shrieks that accompanied his joyous jumps for joy... really, the spontaniety was heartwarming.

Dr. John - I know from your past photos what a rich and wonderful past you have... I'm so happy I have been privy to your fabulous photos ;) You make me remember my own past with your great memories :)

Lime - It was an opportunity for the taking... little Hunter's squeaks and shrieks were immediately demanding of any camera within sight-shot...truly it was one of the most esoteric moments I've experienced for a long time. The photos didn't even do it justice: I must have take 20 or 30 pictures... all are of his pure fun... he didn't know I was photographing him.

JJ = Truly this was one of those magic experiences where nobody is in charge, life's pure "buzz" just blazes through and some of us get to see it :) I took the kids, plus my Sis and her clan to the local theme park (Discovery World, Six Flags) and we all just had a wonderful time together. My pocketbook is groaning, but it was money most excellently spent :)I live for family.

Hope all is well with you and your two munchkins :)

Children know how to bring the best out in a hot summer day. :-)

javajazz said...

that pocketbook groan
was worth it...
life's pure buzz...
that's what it's all about, really.

my munchkins are okay...
they have little to do with me,
and big munchkin is now living
in new york...details at 11...ish.
(sigh.) xo

Crazy Me said...

Jamie Dawn said...

Those pictures say it all! Summer can't be more perfect than those moments. Hope you had a wonderful summer and I see you got your camping trip in after all. Good for you.
