Charlie Brown

Alyssa would move her bedroom to the pool or tree house if she could. The kid loves to be outside. I don't think there has been a day this summer that she has not been swimming. She has such a vivid imagination and today was no exception. She calls this move the "Charlie Brown". I don't know why she calls it that, but, who cares, I love her imagination. Chad and I try to go swimming with her at least once a day, and the dogs go the rest of the times. About 5 dripping bathing suits are in the washroom at all times. Don't you just love the summer? One little hand behind her head and one little hand grabbing her leg. I would have to say she is a professional "Charlie Brown" stunt-girl.

Perhaps it's from the "Cha Cha slide"? Great shot! Thanks for coming by mine. You have a lovely blog and love your choice of songs (especially love "new soul", it reminds me of my Livie)

What a super picture! That one image summarizes SUMMER. If you could have one picture from each season, that one would have to be summer.

Ahhh, how I envy your pool! Once our two babies finish their ISR training (check my blog for more info: june 8th & june 30th), we hope to get a pool and enjoy the same fun and excitement that you so crisply display in this photo! Absolutely gorgeous.

That's a terrific photo! Our house if the same every year...soggy bathing suits in the bathroom, wet towels over the deck railing. I love it! Wish they never had to go back to school.

Don't you just love summer?! If I had a pool in my backyard, I'd be in it all the time too practicing my "Charlie Brown." :)

Super shot!

I think Mandaroo is right... she had to get 'Charlie Brown' from the Cha Cha song. Great work in capturing real moments with the little ones!

Those are some mighty fine photos. I am so envious of all these people who can take fabulous pictures.
We could take photos like that here in England at the moment - only we don't need a pool! It's so darn wet here . . .
