Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog Hop :O)

Yay it has arrived our very first Stamptacular Blog Hop - Let the Summer Begin :O)

If you have arrived here on my blog you should have already visited Paula, Nikki, Line, Priscilla, Donna and Liza and read all about their summer activities or seen some creations or pictures,and left them a comment, if you havent be sure to go back so you will qualify for the prize at the end of the hop :O)

Summer Sun, Summer Fun well it is for my kiddies lol, I am not a sun worshipper, although I like the warmer days and the warmer evenings, summer always gives me a feeling of freedom, some how I dont seem to be limited by time which is nice :O)This Picture of my son was taken last summer, I literally had to click click click until I got one as he really wasnt having none of it lol get out my face mum I am playing with sand lol.....and this one of my daughter she wont thank me for this picture but I absolutely love it! sometimes the camera just captures this was also last summer, forgive me but my camera hasnt been out to see any summer sun this year YET!

Our holidays usually consist of park, beach and funfairs and buying tons of toffee apples scrummy! I can think of nothing worse than a hot sweaty summer day, sitting on the beach getting sticky and all covered in sand ugh, Summer party pooper or what lol, I dont do beaches well! Although I do love the park when its hot and sunny, we live just down the road from Greenwich Park which I absolutely Love :O)My sons Birthday is at the end of July and its usually a scorcher of a day, last year he was 4 and he said it was his best birthday ever, will birthday number 5 top that this year?! lol

So a mixed bag from me really on summer, I'll sum it up as being Nice lol

Thanks for hopping by I hope you enjoyed reading my summerness, your next stop on the hop will be the lovely Janneke xxx

Lena Katrine said...

I've now been visiting Paula, Nikki, Line, Pricilla, Donna and Liza . and now it's your turn!

During summer I love spending time with my family on our 23 feet boat, and go swimming in the sea!

Happy summer, Joey! Hugs, Lena

Nunt said...

Hey Joey,
I don't like scorching sun either - I'm a fair skinned Scandinavian and I burn instead of getting tanned. Of course I can always splat on SP 40 kids sun lotion, but that means I'll be sticky and have to redo it like once an hour... But I like the lightness of the days, and all the yummy fruits and berries and veggies fresh from the market!

Toffee apples sound like heaven... *drool*

xx, nunt

sounds like you and your family are busy in the summer. we live just down the road from a park as well and the local pool is within walking distance, too. we spend LOTS of time in and around the pool. i love your wedding card for the ssc challenge this week. i always enjoy seeing what you create for that team!

Callie said...

Summer is great. My birthday is near the end of July just like your son. I love it though cause it's such a beautiful sunny time of the year... I mean, how can you not be that happy when it's so beautiful outside?

Shelley said...

Joey, sounds like you have your hands full during summer. So much fun but so little time. Enjoy!
Our children never like the photos we take of them.
Am I first on this blog hop?

Hey Joey, I am with you on the beach thing, but I deal with it for my girls. My fav summertime thing to do is hanging out with my girls!! Going to Disney, Adventure Landing (our waterpark here in Jacksonville, Fl), the pool, the beach(ugh), etc. If you can't tell we enjoy being out in the sun all summer!!

Love your bear wedding card!!

Have a great day!!

Crazy For Scrapping said...

sounds like fun, TFS what you like to do during the summer.

tracy said...

sounds like lots of fun unfortunately i prefer the shade!
but we do spend half of the time in either wales or the lake district taking long walks, swimming in streams running down from the mountains oh and visiting the local homemade icecream shop that sells over 45 flavours and i do enjoy that it doesn't get dark till much later in the evening.

Pam said...

Hi Joey

The photos of the kids are lovely. Its been great this half term as the weather has been great and feels as though the summer is well and truly on its way. Unfortuantely for 3 of us its back to work and school tomorrow, my lucky son has an extra day of for a TD day so his nan is taking him to Weston on the train to spend some time on the beach- we're not jealous at all!!!!



Anonymous said...

Awww Joey your kids are beautiful! I agree that summer has no time restraints and it's lovely!

Lil Sis said...

Your kids look adorable Joey, I love the sun, unfortunately it doesnt like me to much and I get covered in big red blotches, so on great days like today I have an hour outside then come in and craft and go back out in the late afternoon when the sun has gone o the front of the house.

Hugs Beccy x

Jerusha said...

Your kids are cute! My son will be 4 in November so no summer birthday fun for him! :) Enjoy your summer!

Sprytebyrd said...

Hiya Joey! Great kid photos, they're so much fun in the sun, aren't they? I am so glad that our beaches don't get scorching hot in the summer, which is why I like them! I'm with you, certainly don't want to be stuck on a hot, sweaty beach! Ours are windy (great for kites) and cool, sometimes even sweatshirt weather! It's perfect for me!
Wish your little guy a happy birthday and have a wonderful summer!

Sue said...

Hi Joey - love the pictures of your kittens :-)
Summer is a great time for the kids - although at the moment my son probably wont be agreeing with us as he has just started his GCSE's - roll on mid June for him!

Nikki said...

Hi Joey your kids look so great I love the sun but I have to hide in the shade if there is any :(
Have a great day

Sheila, The Dreamer said...

Your family is beautiful! And what a fun age!!! My son just turned 6 and loves playing in the sand too.
Stay cool and enjoy the summer! Thats my plan! ;o)

Kim Dellow said...

raindropecho said...

Those pictures are just precious. I'm like you, I'm not that big of a sun person. Even though I like camping and fishing, I like to stay in the shade while doing it! Hope you enjoy your summer!

Biscuitlid said...

Great photos! Our summer is much of the same. I like your birthday story. My kids think EVERY birthday is the best birthday yet. Good way to think!

Carmen O. said...

Loved seeing pics of your cute children and I hope your son's 5th birthday tops his last one! I hope you have a great week.

craftydesignz said...

Thanks for shaing a snippet of your life with us, Your kids are so darn cute,



debra said...

Hi Joey
Great pic of the children and i agree sticky hands and sand all over is really not my cup of tea but you have to do it when you have children.
hugs Debra

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

I love just resting in a swing and reading a book! That's my idea of a nice summer!

Skraptacular Designs said...

Hi Joey,

I'm so with you! I absolutely HATE a scorching hot, sticky summer day! There's nothing worse except if you add rain to it and then have to endure the humidity too!

However, I do love going to the beach with family and friends for a great picnic or barbecue! I just love get togethers with loved matter what the occasion or what the weather's like!

Adorable pictures of your children! Too cute and I'm sure that your daughter will really thank you for that one when she gets older...aren't photographs great!?!

Thank you so much for being a special part of the SSC DT! What would I do without you? So glad you accepted my invitation and hope you're enjoying every minute of it! Love having you on board!


Faye said...

Joey, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. I have so much enjoyed looking through yours. Your children are beautiful. I'm not much for sun either (hard to cut and paste in the sand) but I can tell your little ones love it.

Toothy said...

What cute kids, I love your daughters dress.

Gwendolyn said...

Christine said...

Great photos!!! I too don't like the heat but I do like the summer. I like going out on my deck in the evenings to relax!!!


Rima said...
