Summer Daze Photo Party | Week One

If you don't know by now, Summer is my absolute favorite time of the year! I love everything about it ... waking to the sound of the song birds, hot afternoons and warm nights, the days with no structure, swimming, lounging, s'mores, picnics, vacations .... I truly could go on and on. Our first week has already flown by but included pool time with cousins and friends, grilled pizza and strawberry shortcake with family, staying up late and sleeping in, jeep rides, reading, celebrating my sister, Sarah's, birthday and baking lots of chocolate chip cookies! 

Looking through my photos this week, it appears I was obsessed with insects and critters. This fellow was hanging out in one of the magnolia flowers that had bloomed a little earlier in the week.

This guy was slithering about one of our Hemlock trees. With quite a bit of poking and prodding, my husband got him out from under it and I was able to snap a few photos. My girls are quite the opposite of one another. My oldest didn't even want to look at it, my youngest couldn't get enough before my husband picked him up and deposited him in the wetlands across the road. Hopefully he doesn't find his way back!

Flyguy was hanging out on a Magnolia leaf one morning after the rain.

And I snapped a photo of this lovely butterfly moth by the pool one afternoon.

It's been a good week, full of fun and relaxation.

I'm linking up once again with Kristi, Alicia and Rebecca. They are hosting a fun-filled, laid-back photo party for the next six weeks. No prompts, no challenge ... a place to share our summer fun! Feel free to join in! They are sharing awesome freebies too such as the Summer Bucket List below. You can find this here on Project Alicia as well as a free collage template she's sharing. Kristi has also made a free collage template this week which I used for my daisy photos above. You can find that here.

Enjoy your weekend! It looks like an awesome one here in the Northeast!!
