Snapshots of a Summer Night

School's been out for over a week now and I've finally found some time to catch up on blogging. Things have been crazy around here, especially getting ready for Girls Camp on Monday.

 Here's some pics from the first night of summer, a typical time spent in the backyard. Above is some game the kids thought up in which you stuff an entire cupcake in your mouth and then run across the yard. Whatever.

 I'll call this pic "The Tree Doctor" because this is pretty much what Mark does most nights. Comes home from work and putts around the yard, fertilizing, spraying, pruning, doing who-knows-what-all in the yard. He loves it.
 One of our favorite games is track ball where you hurl a ball super fast at your opponent and see if they can catch it. Pretty fun stuff.
 Apparently I take the game very seriously.

 Last pic of the night as the sun was finally going down (after 10:00!) I love these cool evenings spent outside. They're one of my favorite things about summer!

Wow I can't believe the sun is out for that long! That looks way fun, the area you are in is so pretty!

I love that your kids are all at ages where you can enjoy playing "night games" with them in your own yard!
