our summer photo album {blog hop!}

the family rikrak at the beach, 
summer 2009, photo by me.


happy monday, lovelies!

hope you all had a great summertime weekend.

as thoughts of back to school creep into our periphery vision here, and we begin to see leaves turning scarlet! (fear not - i won't give up summer quite YET!) i thought it the perfect time to share all of our favourite summertime images.

so here's what i'd love from you:

---> link to a post on your blog, or on flickr or twitpic your favourite image (or images) of summertime! of yourselves, your families, your friends.

and then we can all visit.

i'll start....
my favourite one of late is actually this image from last summer.
mr. rikrak & little rikrak playing in the waves at the beach.

i love the playful fun, the warm setting sun & the fond memories of that wonderful summer day happily alive in my mind!

now it's YOUR turn.

please add your link below and we'll all enjoy a fun summertime blog hop-o-images!
AND add a comment, too!

can't wait to see all of your summer photo albums!
it'll be a wonderful archive when the chilly winds blow this autumn!
