A Perfect Summer Evening..









 The sun casts its' evening rays in beautiful patterns over our backyard and the soft evening breeze gently swayed the tree tops while we each did our own thing. Dad planted tomatoes, green peppers, green beans, and cucumbers in the garden. Mom and Andrew organized stuff for our upcoming yard sale. Mary ran around playing and eating popsicles. And Kathryn and I tried to capture the precious moments on camera. Later in the evening I pulled out my paints and a blanket and plopped down underneath my favorite tree. There I painted until my heart was content while soaking in the atmosphere and thinking of the brownies inside the house just waiting to be devoured. It was a perfect summer evening. :)

  6. That sounds so nice and peaceful! I have to say, May is our busiest month, with dance recital this Sunday, and then violin recital the next. But, I am looking forward to the nice and laid back days that you are talking about(:

    1. Yes, summer is wonderful! May is actually very busy for us too! Concerts, piano recitals, my sister's graduation, and my brother soccer games! But it is nice to set aside an evening just to relax! Have a great may, Grace, and thanks for your comment! :)
