Summer brings more daylight but time goes by faster…

Kids aren’t the only ones who don’t want to go to bed when the sun is still shining bright in the sky. YupΒ we adults are just as bad.

I swear that even though we have more daylight hours in the days now, time goes by much faster. Or perhaps we just forget that the sun sets much later in the day now so when the two families watched it setting last night and we all wondered what time it was we shouldn’t have been so shocked to realize it was almost 10pm… ah fun times! The kids were having a blast and slept great – feeling slightly sorry for the daycare workers today πŸ˜‰ however such is life on a PA Day! So we finally got the kids into the house, had no choice but to give them a shower – they were filthy – evidence of the FUN they had with their new friend! Read them each a book, kisses good night, hugs and they were down for the count… too bad during our social time hubby and I didn’t eat a thing for supper – made for a late night, the dishes and laundry I had planned to do are still sitting… but it was so fun!

Lucky for the kids their summer break is coming up soon and they are very ready for it! Lucky for mama as this is going to make my start to the day much more relaxed as well not having to remind them to get ready, to finish their breakfast or stop fooling around. Many mornings, bless our children, I feel like I could get a better response from the wall, well ok not the wall but for sure the dog lol.

Even our baby boy, or as Mady calls him, their baby brother πŸ˜‰ Beck LOVES Summer!!! He is getting SO big! I cant believe in exactly a month (yesterday) our baby turns 1!!!

Mady loves it when Daddy is able to come pick them up as well, “the girls” get to go in Mommy’s van and “the boys” in Daddy’s truck…

Its funny talking with friends who also enjoy having a great outdoor space about how simple life really can become when you do enjoy your backyard living. From being active to just sitting and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.

Not only am I loving our home more now that we are getting more and more settled with each passing day, but finally releasing the pressure from myself with regards to photography – I am LOVING every moment I pick up my camera and am loving those moments even more knowing thatΒ I am capturing OUR moments – not just shots here and there or having the kids pose – thats not “real” life… THESE photos are real life, these are the moments that when I look back on I will hear their laughter, hear my laughter at them posing the way they were or purposely swinging into each other or the pure joy in their voices when they hear Daddy backing his truck into the drive way.

Yup this is what life is all about… and if some days I end up being tired, so be it. Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest and with those you love spending time with!
