Nights like these

One of my favorite things about summer is how much daylight we get. I can come home from work and we are able to squeeze in an adventure as we like to call it around here. We ventured onto one of the nature trails about a ten minute drive from our house hoping for some good puddle jumping. David laughed at me that I wore flip flops and of course about 20 steps into our quest I slipped and fell and tore my knee up pretty bad. I guess that's what I get for wearing holy jeans and flip flops!

We trekked into the forest where I continued to get eaten alive by mosquitos - oh did I mention I am allergic? What can I say, I am a sucker for pretty locations and gorgeous light. So onward we went, P in her little yellow rain boots (beyond adorable) trudging along without complaint. On the way back to the car David spotted an area we could access the creek so we went down to get some "muddy puddle" jumping action in. (Kudos if you get the Peppa Pig reference)

'twas a good summer night.

  3. Oh my gosh, I totally get eaten alive by mosquitos too. the worst!

    These pictures were worth it though!!
