This is what perfection on a summer day looks like.
Family and friends gathered at our pool.
Snacks and squeeze its all around.
Smiles and laughter and splashing.
Sad and long goodbyes and lets do it again before school starts.
Jumping and floating around.
Sadly talking about school.
Planning vacations for next summer.
Naps with chlorine eyes and sweaty little bodies.
Swimming with their daddy when he gets off work.
Proud to overcome her fears.
Pizza for dinner.
And Summer Shandy.
Night swims and one more jump in.
It really doesn’t get much better than this.
I always get teary eyed when I think about work and school and not seeing their faces every day like I love.
Always wanting more summer days like today.
Nothing better than being an aunt. Nothing.
