Summer Evening Party



We had our first family outdoor supper this summer.
They came ready to play...
greeting one another with hugs and smiles.


We don't have horses...
but the neighbours do and I pulled the wagon across the field so they could hear me make horse sounds in an attempt to make the horse whinny.



The oldest two little ones...
played a unique version of scrub which mostly was practice in connecting with the ball with a bat.
The dads offered encouragement and threw those balls as close to the bats as possible.


In between...
the bikes were all pulled out and young and younger claimed the wheels of their liking and zipped around the yard.


The littlest one?
He just ran back and forth with a smile.

Even he knew that summer is good...
especially when the sun shines.


all for now...

  3. Now it is about time for the sun to shine! Good heavens, you've all been patiently waiting for some time.

    What a fun evening yours looks. Now why didn't someone take a video of you whinnying trying to get the horses to have a conversation?! Where's that daughter-in-law with the camera?

    I'm loving the ball game in party dress. So sweet...

  5. Don't you just love it when they greet each other? So cute!
    On that same night.. ours tumbled around on the grass all evening .. so happy. After they left, the long green lawn looked like a shag carpet that needed vacuuming... so now it's mowed.
