Summer Elements Blog Hop

Here's a blog hop I was jumping to get into!! When I heard Toltec Jewels was hosting the Summer Elements Blog Hop I was curious. So, I checked out the "rules". They were as follows: "Create and share what you love about an element of summer. It can be jewelry, beads, a recipe, a craft, vacation memories, campfire songs -- anything that celebrates summer. Whether it be gardening  advice, a quilt with a fireworks motif, a sand & sea necklace, your favorite apple pie recipe for the 4th of July, a sand dollar made of clay, a waterfall design, photography, or a tutorial for creating bath salts or potpourri from the garden!"

I recently purchased a Slip~n~Slide for my grandchildren. On the first day of their summer vacation we took it out of the box and broke it in! I made sure I had my camera handy. These pictures are the very epitome of summer!! I decided to for-go making Summer themed jewelry!!

Without further adieu - here are pictures of my grandchildren slipping and sliding!!
These pictures are prior to the slip~n~slide:




I must admit I have gorgeous grandchildren. This is 4 out of 8 of my grandchildren!

Slip~n~slide pictures: 


























There ya have it! My idea of the Summer element of WATER! We have officially kicked off Summer at my house!! How about you?

Dyanne,

LOL! What a cool post! You are the best Grandma in the world! Your grandkids are awesome, and your photos -- fabulous action photography! I love the pictures of your gorgeous grandchildren sliding along, with the water frozen in mid-air! The wonderful smiles, slip-sliding right into summer -- now that's FUN!

Fabulous Summer post! Beautiful family, and beautiful photography.
Love,
Rita
