summer flashback.

 so don't let these pictures fool you.
i was freeeaaaaking out out there on the water.
every time my sisters attempted to jump in and out of the water, i felt like the canoe was about to flip over.  
seriously, i think my throat gave out close to the end of that mini canoe trip.

and i really was having a blast being out there.
i just have a tendency to get my stress out through screaming.
and i totally screamed a lot.
good thing my sister's husband didn't intentionally flip the canoe over to make me stop shrieking.

we took these pics during our three day stop in Iowa, visiting my Kristine and her Ryan, at the end of summer. 
as excited as i am for autumn, these pictures make me miss good ole summertime.

what is your all time favorite memory from this summer?

much love.
[happy weekend, friend.]


  1. I've only been canoeing once, and that was soooo long ago :( My favorite summer memory is my wedding and honeymoon :)

  2. You were in Iowa!? That's crazy. I live in Iowa, haha. Anyways, these pictures are making me miss summer as well! We haven't even seen any sun for the last few days!

  3. Aw family time is the best!

    Any sort of travel was the best part of summer. I don't know if you're a big HP fan, but I definitely got to go to Harry Potter World!

    And the Philippines :]

  4. Aw, well it looks like you're having lots of fun!

  5. Woah! I love all the photos with your family! :)

  6. I've always wanted to go canoeing! Looks like you had tons of fun! I miss summer :(

  7. kayak > canoe.

    in 5th grade i remember a traumatic canoe experience where my friend & i fought at camp because we could only get our canoe to go in circles.

    kayaks don't tip as easy and they're easier to steer.

    canoes, imho, are evil.

  8. So know what you mean about freaking out in a conoe, lol last summer my stepdad kept scaring me by rocking the conoe where it almost flipped, i almost gave myself a heart attack lol great photos :)


  9. hehehe i'd be afraid of tipping over too! i'm a wuss like you~!! ;) i actually kind of miss the warm weather now that it's been kinda cold, LOL!!

  10. cool. such fun-filled pictures. :) summer is the best. :)

  11. such a teen answer but i'd have to say camp in July. all you had to do was go learn about God & have fun. :) it was the life.

  12. My hubs and I want to buy a canoe....even though we don't have a lake. hehe
    Its just too much fun!

  13. My family loves doing canoeing trips too, and I'm right beside you in freaking out if it looks like the canoe will tip!
    My all-time favorite memory of this summer was seeing Owl City with my best friend. We ran into a group of friends we didn't know would be there and were only four rows from the front. It was a magical evening dance party~

  14. i already miss summer! these pics look like such a fun time! family trips are the best!

  15. You're kinda making me wish it was still summer lady!
