Summer is winding down. It's a sad fact but one that I must face. I started thinking; "What have we been doing for the past 3 months?", so I looked at my pictures. There is the photographic evidence that we actually had fun. Sure there was some fighting, crying and yelling (both on my part and on the kids as well) but all in all we had a great summer!
Hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as we had posing for them!

This is what I'll miss most about summer:
The best part of our vacation is most of these pictures were taken right in my own backyard. We love living in Portsmouth, there is so much to do and see here (we didn't even scratch the surface!).
I start back to work tomorrow and we have an open house for the kids school Tuesday so I guess this is really it.
Back to the grind.
Next week I'll post pictures of their first day at school and probably of me crying. But I am looking forward to having some time to myself. I just wish it didn't come at the expense of their childhood.
Happy Monday Everyone!
