Park place ¦

This week marked the last day of school and the start of summer…

What am I going to do with three boys?

Go to the park.
Here are pictures from 3 of the 5 parks we visited this week…

Self-shadow portrait of Rhett and I holding hands on Mother’s Day…

Go see more pictures at Lotus’ place.


  1. Five in one week. You’re pretty amazing.
    Yeah, summer strikes fear into my heart. I’m thinking…art lessons, grandma’s house….karate lessons, granda’s house, vacation.
    Ugh, we’ll see.

    Hang it there!!

  2. A Mom Two Boys says:

    Dude. What’s up with one in a parka and one in shorts & a t-shirt. Is that like the pajama thing all over again?!

  3. OK–the pic with the two with heads together . . . LOVE it! Adorable. Maybe J needs a brother . . .

    How fun!!!

  4. On a limb with Claudia says:

    Hurray for the park. We go to our with Rosie every day – sometimes a couple times a day. It’s just awesome to be outside. Did you get the blue room for your backyard?

  5. Jenn @ Juggling Life says:

    We used to go to the park every day. Thanks for the memories!

  6. the planet of janet says:

    i know this must sound sacrilegious, but i HATED the park when my kids were little.

    way too much work! 🙂

  7. Love the pictures! Maybe new parks are on the summer plan.

  8. frogpondsrock says:

    Yay..I love the park. enjoy the holidays..

    (I enjoyed the illustrated road trip as well)

    cheers kim

  9. Manic Mommy says:

    Yep. Two more weeks and we’re screwed. I’m lining up playdates already – are you in? I can make some coffee.

  10. secret agent mama says:

    I’d love to go to the park with you guys! Great set HRH! I keep forgetting to do it, but I’m doing it right now. I’m adding you to my blogroll. <3

  11. Those are great! I love the sixth one (the one shot down the red ladder thing – eek that’s not very articulate!).

  12. What fantastic photos and lovely memories you have made with your gorgeous boys!

  13. InTheFastLane says:

    I do love the shorts, crocs and winter parka idea 🙂

  14. Three of the FIVE parks LAST WEEK???? My kids are lucky if they get ONE part every three-to-five weeks! (There are 6 within reasonable walking distance of our house.) You’re a good mommy! I’m a bad one! (Don’t worry, I won’t beat myself up over this. Just never tell my kids! I’ll have to start reading blogs when the one who can read over my shoulder is elsewhere!)

  15. life is a blessing says:

    I love #4 and #6, those are awesome pictures!

  16. ya ya's mom says:

    love the shadow shot!

  17. I love the shadow shot, and the one aimed down the red ladder as he climbs up! These are great!

  18. They’re all lovely! There’s something about the third one that I really love. I don’t know that it’s my favorite… but I LOVE it. 🙂

  19. What gorgeous looking parks!! I wish we had some like that here!

  20. MoscowMom says:

    Fun! I miss such safe equipment! Love the shadow portrait; very cool.

  21. slouching mom says:

    those are some AWESOME pictures!

    and out of school? a full month earlier than where i live??

  22. Such cute pics of your boys 🙂 My oldest (12) doesn’t get out of school til June 6th~but only because the beginning of school was delayed 3 weeks due to construction @ about 4 of the schools in the county! I know your boys enjoyed “park day” though~I don’t know a child alive that doesn’t like that 😉

  23. I meant to say too that I love that last pic~TOO precious 🙂

  24. Your boys are so cute! I love the pictures. I am going to miss school too – mostly for me. It’s a coop and I will miss the adult conversation twice a week. Maybe at the park…

  25. Kelsey Smith says:

    What beautiful photos! I LOVE the last!

  26. Burgh Baby's Mom says:

    Playground pics are the best. I love ’em all!

  27. I’m tryin to imagine how my kids would react if we went to five different parksin one week… your lucky boys!

  28. Am I the only one who can’t go to a park w/out having at least one where-are-the-kids-where-are-the-kids mini panic attack?

    Just checking.

  29. maggie's mind says:

    All really great, great, great shots! I love your eye and the way you framed some of these shots. Much fun!

  30. That shot of the swingset through the triangle is so cool!!!

    And yes…the park. I’m going to be very tired of the park by the end of summer…how about you? *G*

  31. merrymishaps says:

    Great photos. I really like the shadow shot!

  32. Elaine A. says:

    School’s out already?? Say it isn’t so.

    Looks like you guys are havin’ lost o’ fun. Love the pics!

  33. Sleeping with Ward Cleaver says:

    great pics–love the visuals with the triangular window view of the triangular swingset poles. You’ve got quite the artistic eye…(and also love the shadows holding hands 😉

  34. laughingatchaos says:

    You need to road trip to Colorado; we can hit new and exciting parks with our boys in tow, then leave them at night and drink margaritas. 😉 Just lemme know when you’re coming so I can shovel a path through the toys to the guest room. LOL!
