Summer hit us in full force this past week. It's hot, we're all cranky and tired, but somehow the kids still want to be outside. Luckily it's harvest time in the Dascenzi/Miller (my Papa) backyards so we've been fortunate to take advantage of some fun outdoor activities close to home. The kids are loving every bit of it, and the adults are trying to keep from melting in the heat.

Oh, and about a week after we returned from Alabama Joe took off walking on his own. Delaney is still practicing, but she'll be running alongside him in no time!

(don't mind Maggie's '80s hairdo in these photos)

picking apricots in Papa's backyard

I always loved playing in my Papa's garden as a girl, isn't it pretty!

Delaney has her gathering sack!

Not walking yet, but rolling along...

Check out Joe trying to catch the girls on the quad (his head still leads the way).

Just because it's cute.

Your papa's garden is amazing! The size of those veggies are incredible too. Love the pictures as usual. :)
