Being young in the summertime

My three sons and I are spending the summer in Utah. My boys have had a blast so far. They are in kid heaven. The play outdoors all day long, swimming, sliding on the slip-n-slide, bouncing and sleeping on the trampoline, and playing on the playground in my parent's backyard. They are lucky to have such great aunts and uncles who play with them. They are especially lucky to have Ethan, their twelve year old uncle and my brother who is making this summer the best ever! The boys are getting plenty of sun, summer foods, and outdoor playing time. Because it rains a lot in Ireland, we do not get outdoors like this. Whenever it is sunny in Ireland we go to the beach or do something adventurous, but I think for the boys, it is fun to be able to play outdoors all day everyday! I am happy that they are loving life so much. I remember doing similar activities in this very backyard when I was young. It is nice to see them relive my childhood and create memories that I have. There's nothing better than being young in the summertime!

Spending time with my boys, there's nothing better!
