summer solstice

happy june 21st, or first day of summer 2011!

we have dove (or is it dived?) into summer head first, full force & are quickly whittling down our list of must-dos for the summer.
first on the list: make a mess & love it. it can be tricky to really allow kids to go at something messy with wild abandon. when they're so little we're the ones cleaning up after them & it's hard not to think about that as the mess increases, but i made an effort to  enjoy watching him more than i cared about cleaning up after him! sure, he (and his perimeter) was a disaster, but nothing a little hose down couldn't solve.

Happy first day of Summer ! Those photos are so cute ! I wish we had Summer weather in Paris, but it came and went in April and May - now I believe Fall has arrived.

Bisous !!

Great way to celebrate summer. I wish I could eat a popsicle in my undies outside in the sunshine and then wash it down with the garden hose or get unsticky by running through the sprinklers !

Oh wait,
what's to stop me?

Just may have to try that today!

bisous from Gigi!
