Summer Continues

Yes, it's still summer, although I'd be much happier if it was June or even July rather than August already. I am NOT ready for school to start again at the end of the month! At any rate, I'm going to enjoy the summer break while we have it.

The theme for the week at You Capture is "Summer." Last weekend we went camping with a group of people from our church. The campground had a pool, and we spent a LOT of time there, and I took a bunch of pictures that fit You Capture's theme.

Jumping in the pool quickly became the activity of choice for the boys.
Here I Go!

Before the Splash

When Hubby and I first tried to coax the Youngest to jump in the pool into Hubby's arms, Hubby practically had to pull him in. The second time the Youngest kept squatting down, and we kept telling him to stand up and jump. He squatted and stood about 5 times before jumping in. After that, jumping in was almost all he wanted to do!

today. I love the shot of him holding his nose as he jumps in. My 32-year-old sister still does it, and I always think she looks 10 years old again!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my photography blog!

Looks like a fun day was had and I, too, got a chuckle out of the muscle picture!

These shots are such great fun - I remember being at the pool all day long during the summer. I only wish I could do that now.
