Why does Summer have to end?

Have I mentioned how much I love Summer?

Days like today. Soft, puffy clouds. Bright blue sky. Electric green grass.

We spent today doing very important things.

Bumblebee learned to ride her bike without training wheels. We started on a hill in the grass, and then moved to the driveway where she took off without much help. By the end of the day, she was able to ride around the neighborhood with me! She only fell once, and it was down into a mud puddle, but she wasn't hurt.

Earlier today, we went to the beach where there was some serious work to be done:

It took them a LONG time...

But the finished product was pretty cool:

That adorable boy with the nice tan and the curly blonde hair is Hollywood's boyfriend. She has good taste, don't you think? He's not just adorable, though. He's a really great kid too.

Later in the day, we goofed around in the yard. Reggie was handing out kisses, as usual:

The Boy dutifully posed for some pictures for me. It frightens me how quickly he is growing up:

This is what I say to my kids growing up and Summer passing too quickly:

That looks like it hurts.

I was wondering when you were going to introduce the adorable blonde guy!

Looks like a great day.

Thanks for sharing your day with us! You have a beautiful backyard and yes, the blonde guy is adorable. :) They're a cute couple.
