How fun! I love the picture of your husband and Jacob. I can't tell you how many times my husband has fallen asleep with one of our girls like that in the chair!

I will see if I can do mine later tonight or tomorrow. This will be fun!

Cute pictures. I love the lazy days of summer. Although they really never seem to be that lazy!

Crown of Beauty said...

I love your summer pics, not just the ones you posted here, but also those in your previous posts.

Your smiles and laughter are contagious, even the dog was laughing in one of the pics, wasn't he?

Thanks for tagging me! Will work on this post and share my summer joys one of these days!

Those were all great pictures...I love the sleeping one. So cute. We have been terrible with bedtimes too.

Beautiful pictures. I was tagged by Kat in Hope's game and I changed it up a bit...hope you will drop by and check out my silly pics.
Your family is adorable and it is always great to learn more about you.

Wasn't this just fun to play? I was going to tag my hubby and daughter, but then thought about it and realized they would just reuse my same pictures.

I love who you have tagged and can't wait to see the summer love just spread!

Love the picture of disregarding bed times. We've thrown ours out the window and said, it's summer, let's just have fun!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I think the napping picture is a classic!

We always get to extend our summer a little because we vacation in the month of September. We usually get back around the sixth of October and start school the following week. But those days getting shorter get to me just the same.

Adeye said...

What gorgeous pics.

Thanks for the invite--I will absolutely play along. Just give me a few days.

Thanks for being such a blessing and so very encouraging of our journey to Hailee. I appreciate it more than you can know.

Thanks for stopping by! For some reason yours is one of those blogs that makes my wireless cut out, I had to "plug" in to come see you!
I love disregarding bedtimes!
Your family looks so not happy for the family fun night photo! LOL! I love the toddler age! That is a cute lil pool pic with the dog who appears to be howling!
