Summer photos...

I have not done a lot of scrapping over the last week or so...but I have been taking lots of pictures. Dixie Pieces is having fun with the SENSE-ational Summer Contest kickoff...I thought I would play along with the "post 10 summer pictures" challenge.

This weekend Jack had a horse show. He has spent a ton of time with my Mom over the last few weeks riding and getting quality time with her. He even has a new pony! They did great over the weekend especially since his new pony, Ebony's Ghost has never been shown before.

They came away with 3 ribbons and lots of smiles!

Mom, Jack and Ghost...

He always looks so serious when he shows!

Trotting away...

We went to visit my brother and his family this week and had a great visit. Lunch, visiting with my nieces and blueberry picking were a great way to spend the day.
Nick swinging A...

Maya going so high on the swings.

Gabi found this cluster of caterpillars...Yuck!

Josh picking blueberries...

Jack strolling through the blueberry bushes.

My brother waving "Hi". He is recovering from shoulder surgery right now. Too many year of wrestling, coaching and lifting have caught up to him. Poor guy!

Nick through the berry bushes...

Well, I guess I should post at least one layout.
Here is a layout using 3 journaling spots from Creative Chaos Etsy...I so love Jenn's goodies!

A detail shot...

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope your having a great summer!

Congratulations to Jack on the ribbons, he does look very serious and determined when showing.

I love all of the photos but that one of Gabi is stunning. The way she is blurred and the close up of the caterpillars is wonderful.

Lastly, beautiful layout. I love the photos you used.
