If they only had an outboard

We’re at that point in the summer when it feels like these long, crammed-full-of-activity summer days have always been here and yet September is still too far away to bring those Gather Ye Rosebuds As Ye May, For Time Is Fleeting kind of pangs about summer’s end. It’s a good feeling.

Here’s a slice of our summer, and my post for Best Shot Monday.


And before you lift the phone to call child and family services about these unattended children floating around in a boat, here’s the next one in the series:


Rats! Foiled again. Though they did their very best to make a clean getaway.

Hope you had a chance to read and pass on (or post on your own blog) this information from WhyMommy. Thank you.

    That’s such a great picture!! You should DEFINITELY frame the first one. It’s such a boyhood image.

    That is a GREAT shot. They are so adorable!
    Is it wrong that I never would have wondered why they were floating around without an adult? πŸ™‚

    What a fun picture? That boat is childhood, perfected. Who wouldn’t want a bright red boat? And one that’s shaped like a box?! I love it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Love how the color of red jumps out! And I feel just as Cari does…I didn’t even wonder about them out there without an adult. Oops!

    Thanks for sharing the breast cancer information as well. I have posted it on my site too.
