What summer is...

Living in the Canadian prairies means that sometimes winter feels like it is 2 years long.
What does this mean?
It means that summer is:
-taking advantage of every little moment spent outdoors.
-rushing outside the moment the water stops pouring over the gutters and splashing in every single puddle on the street.
-taking puddles home in our boots and multiple daily baths.

In conclusion, what summer is to us is squeezing every last little ounce of fun out of every single tiny last moment.

And of course finishing the days with ice cream.

I had wanted to enter these photos for this contest...until I found out it was for US residents only, bummer!

Great attitude - make the most of what you've got! Too often we take things like sunny days forgranted ... until they are over!
GREAT pics!

I still think you should enter. Can't you get honorable mention or something?

Or here's the plan. I'll enter your pics and then we can split the money. Deal? ; )

Great shots as usual Anna!
