Remembering the Lazy days of Summer

Isn't that a beautiful picture? I was going through some pictures on my computer and came across these pictures from the lazy days of summer. My family loves to be outdoors. We love to go on nature hikes, to go fishing, take walks, bike rides. We are a very active young family. This is just one picture from our favorite fishing hole. Personally, I feel at peace when I am around water. Maybe it is because of the sounds, maybe it is because I am an aquarius. I don't know. I just love to be outside and close to water.
Another great picture huh? This is the picnic area right above our favorite fishing hole. We have had many picnics, some using the grill, some just sammies and chips. The view of the water is amazing..the best thing, there is a playground and restrooms close by..With 4 little ones you can never be too safe.

The above picture is directly across the water from our favorite fishing spot. On this particular day we watched several of these big water birds fish. They actually caught more fish than we did.

This picture was taken my my 2nd daughter. Quite the photographer isn't she. She followed this poor butterfly around the area, snapping many many pictures until she finally got one that showed the beautiful blue color on its wings.

The trees above our favorite fishin place was full of these wonderful caterpillars munching away on the leaves (and pooing on our heads :) ) I saw this guy on the ground and loved it's hair do...I just had to snap a photo.
That is all for today friends. I hope you enjoyed these pictures. They were taken with a Nikon D40 camera. It is a little pricey but it does take wonderful pictures (it was a gift from my wonderful hubby)
Hope you all have a wonderful day and until next time. Be Blessed!


  1. Hi Erin
    I have a D40 too and love it! My hubby got it for me for Christmas a few years ago. Your family sounds super busy! Look forward to visiting again.

  2. Ohio is such a lovely state to drive through. I used to like to go fishing with my kids when they were young. I could bait a hook, but hard as they tried, I never learned how to cast my line.

    My oldest son (10 at the time) hooked his father in the butt cheek on Father's Day. He just cut the line and continued fishing with the hook stuck in his butt cheek. When they were done, he dropped the kids at home and went on to the hospital to have the hook taken out.
