Wordful Wednesday-Summer Begins

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see “WW” inΒ  my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.


Isn’t it funny how odd “action” shots look when taken out of sequence?

  5. Wishing you a great summer too! We’ve already been in the pool a ton, especially with the heat this week! πŸ™‚

  6. Oh that looks like such an awesome pool! I’m jealous! We don’t have any pools to use around us. We have boats though!

  7. I LOVE all the action shots and if it wouldn’t be too much trouble could you please send some of your warm weather our way. My kids would really like to go swimming. Mkay…thanks. πŸ™‚

  12. what fun pool pictures πŸ™‚

  13. Looks so refreshing and fun! Can’t wait to go ourselves!

  14. So very jealous of the pool!

  15. Wish the rain would let up so we could do more of that now that I’ve bought these expensive pool passes (not bitter or anything…) Happy WW!

  16. Amen!! πŸ™‚

  17. Totally reminds me of when we were kids and we’d spend all day in the pool…sweet memories!

  18. Looks like they’re having a blast and it’s something fun to do in the summer.

  19. Yay for summer! And you guys have a nice pool. Can I come over? πŸ˜‰

  20. Love all the sideways shots! Beautiful pool too.

  21. How fun for one kiddo to start the jump and the next to end it! Definitely summer there!

  22. Wow. I seriously want that pool. Just not the pool maintenance… and can I give the pool back when it starts snowing here? Pools are no fun in the winter in Utah.

  23. Love me some summer! Great photos!

  24. Woo Hoo! Nothing like a pool full of kids in the summertime.

  25. That pool looks so inviting. I just joined some water aerobics which I start on Monday & I cannot wait. Great pics there girlfriend. Great pics.

  27. HA! The out of sequence shots make me laugh!!

  28. FUN!! I wish we had a pool!

  29. Summer Fun! Love it.
    Take care.

  30. Wow… Love the pictures… looks like fun!

  31. Looks like summer is going much the way you anticipated. Curious to know how the sleeping in thing is going for you. It’s not happeneing at all for me.

    • Well, the kids ARE STILL in school, just swimming every day AFTER school. Will let you know how the sleeping in goes. Next week. πŸ™‚

  32. I’m soooo jealous! I wish we had a pool that we could go to WHENEVER we wanted, day or night. By the way, your back yard turned out beautiful!

  33. Haha! Those are some great action shots!! Happy Summer to you too!

  34. I did a pool photo this week too! πŸ™‚ Happy summer!

  35. Great pix! I don’t care what sequence they’re in; most days this week I could have used a sparkling blue (cool) pool – it has been SO HOT here!!

  36. Cannonballllllllllllllllll! (By the way, I’m on my way over to join you all LOL)

  37. Great shots! Your pool looks SO inviting! Can we come over??? (our pool is “under construction” and won’t be open this summer. waaaaaaa!)

  38. it’s 48 degrees here. i wish i was there.

  39. Looks like so much fun!! Can’t wait to come for a swim, hint hint πŸ™‚

  40. Okay I am WAY BEHIND! It is only Tuesday night and 53 people have already linked up!!! LOVE your summer fun photos! And as requested by you Angie, I am doing a Hawaiian WW!

  41. Looks heavenly, especially with all this hot weather we are getting.

  42. That looks like TONS of fun!!!

  43. I’ve been looking at so many blog posts this past week with pools, I couldn’t stand it any longer. I posted about how we finally have a back yard pool now. But it is definitely not what you expect.

  44. i can not wait to get pics at the pool!!!

  45. Looks so fun!!!

  46. Wonderful! Tomorrow is our last day of school, woohoo! Love the pool pics!

  47. Great pictures of the kids having fun. I love days like that…I will be waiting for a while to do that though as it is winter here in Australia! I will enjoy a cyber swim instead!

    Thanks for having me today-I have joined in for the first time.

    Best wishes,

  48. How fun! I could never get a stop action shot so clear! What time is the next pool party?

  49. What an awesome POOL of FUn.

  50. That is a good looking pool! Wish we could come over and play with you guys:)

  51. I love action shots because they truly grab the special moment when nobody is posing. Great shots by the poolside. I can’t wait for the weather to get better.

  52. Ok finally got my WW link in. Angie, this one is for you!

  53. Looks like way too much fun!!

    Lovin’ the summer…lovin’ the pool! Enjoy it all!

  65. That looks like tons of fun.

  66. Awesome shots. Pools are the best!

    Until someone starts Marco/Polo.

  68. I’m impress with all their flips and somersaults!

  69. Great action photos! They do look funny out of sequence.

    Summer started here and I am so happy to have my babies home again. πŸ™‚

  70. How did you score such great action shots? I am always too soon or too late. I want to go swimming now!

  71. Great pics. Looks like tons of fun. πŸ˜‰

  72. I think I need to start staying up later on Tuesday nights. πŸ™‚

    My kids have their last day of school today, and then OUR summer begins. They are crossing their fingers that the pool passes come in the mail todaya. Driving by the pool everyday without being able to go in it is just about killing my kids.

  73. Wow, what a beautiful pool! Ours is open as well! Woot!

  74. Great action shots! Happy Summer! πŸ™‚

  75. That, right there, is summer in a nutshell!

  76. I am going to be so glad to have some time off – my kids need some serious time at the pool! πŸ™‚ Those shots look great and a little odd too – but I think that’s what I like about them!

  77. Summer woot woot! Love pool shots….I miss our pool in Utah…I miss my old swimsuit body…..woot woot summer!

  78. Looks like fun! Too bad it’s going to be almost 90 here the next few days and all we have is a little plastic pool. πŸ™ I might be a little jealous haha.

  79. Those are fun pictures! I have a hard time not getting them blurry when I take pics like that.

  80. What awesome actions shots! Bring on summer!

  108. Love those shots…how cool!

  109. Oh summer! Great pictures… If I try and get any action shots the get all blurry… I’m jealous!

  110. That LOOKS like so much fun! Makes me wish we had a pool – that is until I think about the upkeep and such. LOL.

  111. That looks like fun! I want to come over and play! My parents just put in a pool last summer and I totally thought we would be in it more than we are. It’s just not practicle to me to try to take both little one’s over there by myself. Afraid something might happen.

  112. These shots are really cool Angie. I bet the kids enjoyed looking at these photos. My kids love it when I get great action shots of them. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for stopping by and linking up Angie. Happy Wordless/Wordfilled Wednesday!
