 Watching my kids rum a-muck makes me wonder why it's called the lazy days of summer.

Do they ever stop?
They are crazed little people these days.    Joy is overflowing and everyone within arm's length is getting drenched in it.

They are DIRT with NOISE on it.

But then I remember, I had just over 200 hundred acres to run about on my grandparents farm.
I am sure I fell exhausted into bed at the end of a long, hot summer day.

Also, haying.   Just saying.

But it sure is bringing back some lovely memories of my own summers of youth.

And made me go searching for some particular photos for Janice's Time Travel Photo meme.

First Ride!

That was my horse Beauty.
I loved her so much.

She used to take off at full gallop for her stall .... in the middle of trail rides with me clinging to the horn for dear life.    Sometimes I even arrived back at the stall with her.  
It was awesome.

Basically, it seems horsing around runs deep in this family.

We are officially in the hot "dog days" of summer.
Which means the kids want to cool off in water.
Pretty much any water they can find.

Which don't get me wrong, is Awesome.
Especially the beach.   I do love the beach.

But it also means, mama has to spend a lot of time in her bathing suit.
I bought a new one this year, since I haven't been pregnant for over  4 years now, I figured it was time to trade in from the maternity one.

Swimsuit shopping is so much fun.
Said no one ever.

Now I consider myself to have a healthy self esteem - I've had 3 kids all via C Section, and I don't look 20 anymore:  but I certainly am no Beach Bunny anymore.

But most of me is still where it should be at least.
I try not to let such things get to me worked up though.   Honestly, the last thing I want inscribed on my tombstone would be in relation to the size of my ass.
I would hope there would be more important and interesting things about me.
