Summer Fun

There is a photo contest over at 5 Minutes for Mom. They want pictures of what fun in the summer means to us. Most years we would have pictures of kids at the pool, or playing on the slip and slide. Trips to the beach, or the zoo, or maybe even further away if we could swing it. We haven't had the typical summer here this year. With the insane cost of gas we haven't had a chance to venture to far from home.

And then there is baseball. Baseball has filled our summer evenings and weekends. Sometimes it has seemed a bit all consuming with even the basball player himself complaing that there was no time for anything else. To be honest, my husband and I love going to the games. The little ones, not so much. They sure love that consession stand though! They also think they are pretty cool when they get to hang out with their oldest brother and his friends. We think we are pretty lucky to get to spend so much time with them too! At 16, most kids are doing everything in their power to not be around their parents, we know these moments are precious and we treasure them.

With that, this is our Summer Fun picture for this year.

Nothing more classic about summer then a game of baseball!

What a great "action" shot! You clicked just at the right moment. What I would like to know is did he catch the ball?

I'm so glad that I have found your blog as I have truly enjoyed reading through it. I have added you to my feed reader so that I can keep up.

I too have entered a photo into this contest and wanted to wish you the best of luck.

I've also entered my photo into another contest that is going on this week. Please check it out! I appreciate any votes I can get! :)

Great shot!

I know our summer has revolved around baseball too. We have our short break right now and get kicking again next week.

Love those action shots!
