Snapshot Saturday 6/22

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

Happy First Day of Summer! (yesterday)

There is still plenty of time to sign up for the Big Book Summer Challenge! It is super easy-going, as summer should be - you only need to read 1 big book (400 or more pages) between now and September to participate, so join in the fun!

I haven't had any time for taking photos lately, so I thought I'd share a few classic summer shots from the past. This is how we do summer:

My sons on the beach in Wildwood, NJ - August 2003

...And in the same spot in 2012!
My sons at Devil's Lake State Park, WI - 2005

Our traditional way to start the summer, playing in the creek (2005)
Every summer, we take a 3-week road trip out west (this one was 2006)...
...And we bring our camper (Shenandoah Natl Park, 2006)

One of our favorite places - Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, SD (2008)

...And Sylvan Lake in 2012!
Enjoy your weekend and your summer!


  1. Your boys are so grown up, now. Amazing how that happens, isn't it?

    I think I have several pictures of myself at that very spot at Devil's Lake. :-)

  2. Some lovely photos. The scenery looks so dramatic and beautiful.

  3. I loved your photo journey through the years..!!

    Here is my snapshot post

  4. Terrific photos of the boys having fun through the years.

  5. Your photos and terrific and priceless family treasures! I especially like the shots of your boys comparing when they were little to older. I have 3 sons and I do the same thing but it's much harder to get them to pose together now that they are in their 20s!

  6. WE have such similar photos of our boys doing the same kind of poses in similar holiday places (in Australia) ;-)
