Thematic Photographic - 298 - Summer!




WooHoo!  I'm jumping for joy arriving back home today  and seeing a new theme for Thematic Photographic is up and ready!

So happy Carmi brought SUMMER as our theme too! It sure is a joyous time all around!

For as long as I live, there will never be enough summer in my life!




This song brings summer to life! 


There's really only one major flaw in summer, and that's finding enough time to do all the stuff you've been waiting all winter long to do!

Summer brings paddle boats and lawn games.


it has something for every season!





Tents replace snowdrifts.  The weatherman predicted heavy winds and flash floods for the evening! Really, everybody survived here!


This last weekend was "Munchkin Weekend" long days and even longer nights- it's still light out after nine o'clock and there were Roasted PINK PEEPS!


Come on everyone it's time for swimming and


Grass-sledding!



Even during all the hullabaloo during summer, there's always time to reflect.



and take walks under blue skies.



Or head down to Caponi Art Park!



Okay last shot for this post.  Do you ever catch yourself snapping random pictures everywhere you go this time of year?



So grab your camera or your phone and share some of your summer with us right here at Thematic Photographic!

How is it possible that I am not fishing that water? Minnesota has some great areas. I'll be back someday.

Wonderful summer pictures, bright and cheery. I'm going to have to go grass sledding sometime this summer, the kids look like they're having so much fun.
