Jumping into piles of autumn leaves. Playing in the first snow of winter. Smelling the first spring flowers. Running through the sprinklers on a hot summer afternoon.
There are so many "regular" activities that allow us to easily mark growth and see change. For us, enjoying icy snow cones is an ideal summer activity! We have a fabulous snow cone place that is on a shaded lot with picnic tables and plenty of porch swings!
Inspired by Davinie's "Now and Then" layout over at Studio Calico this month, last night after taking pictures of our snow cones, I remembered a previous set of photos, taken two summers ago...and it amazes me to see the change that has taken place...even though there are still similarities (like Hadleigh's cherry flavor choice...and the fun of sticking out your tongue to see it's color! Even the same corner swing.)
NowAh, I must admit that last one is a little heart-breaking. The seasons change much more quickly with children.
What summer activities are you documenting this year?
