hi!  this is me writing from off the face of the earth where i apparently fell two months ago.  um...i don't have any excuses, just some pictures to show and maybe some witty banter to go along.  enjoy my last few months of summer.  i know i did!

way back in really does seem like forever ago that that month took place, i went to church girls camp with these crazy ladies:

...and apparently made some new best friends in the process.  we had an amazing time and i apparently discovered that my mouth is the size of a grapefruit when i want it to be.  good times.

these are just a hint of the stellar girls that were in our group.  so fun.  so unified.  a truly positive experience.

this is my nephew, zach, helping sofi with her life jacket that came off and back on roughly 7 times while we were at the lake.  there's just something i love about the ruffles and the marshmallow all over her face.  gotta love her.

this is not my best look, but i just had to capture (and share) the one snuggle i've had with my daughter this year.  okay, i exaggerate.  there have been maybe two just like this one.  seriously though, don't you just want to die?

this flower lasted for a combined period of about 10 seconds.  

this brings a whole new meaning to bed

luke and his buddy harry enjoyed many shirtless days at the lake/river/park when it rained.  i don't how these boys are still single.

just a couple of the many faces of sofi.

andy with sofi and our little friend addison at the beach.  who needs the gym?

yes, that is a swimsuit on her head worn as a turban.  what can i say?  the girl's got her own style.

lake + regular diaper = this award winning photo.
(thanks karen.  i couldn't have done it without you)

he's obviously portraying the many monster type animals we explored at the aquarium.  oh and luke was there too.  i know, i know...i'm way too funny, right?
um...are there words?
last but not least, luke's first day of his last year of preschool.  he was so proud of his little piece of art.  i was just in awe of how big that little hand is getting.
so, there you have it:  a summer in sutton pictures.  i kinda slacked on the photographing for a little while there, but i'll definitely make a pointed effort (that's a real phrase right?) to document the fall that is impending on is my favorite time of year after all.

Words cannot explain how I feel about being a small yet powerful (yep.... I just said that) part of your BLOG!! Amazing... that's what you are :). Thanks for a Fab Summer. It was fun, and now it's done. Not happy about that... but I'm moving on, only because I have to. Mind that even though the sun may go into hiding and the clouds may drip some precipitation... we will go on squeezing the most out of each day we have! Sooo many Gooooood Times are yet to be had!! :) Love ya T-Diggity.

Love those pics! I died over the swimsuit turban--HAHAHAHA! You look really HOT in that hat--I want one (but look like a DORK in them), and I cried a little for you having to attempt that bedhead--YIKES. Bicked boys all the way!

How come I never got to go to a YW camp at the BEACH??? (Oh ya. I live on the prairies - load up the canoe!).
I've seen bed head and interesting hats before - and your pix bring back all the memories. Your kids are so cute - It was fun to check in with your blog.
