Roll on Summer

Still wet & rainy in NZ.  Yesterday we woke up to a small flood in our bottom paddock which kept rising until the river started to overflow it's banks.  The cows were safe on high ground. They are so inquisitive & kept checking out the water.  Our house is quite high & well out of the flood zone so nothing to worry about. This happens from time to time when we have constant torrential rain.  It had receded to just a small pond this morning.  Roll on Summer I say.

Seeing all the Summer pages on SBF got me scanning some of the old photos of when the kids were young so of course had to scrap a page LOL.

The one below is our eldest Vincent when he was 1 year old taken in January 1973. This little guy loved the water & was totally fearless. Mmm sounds like my grandson Gage LOL. Anyway I digress. We spent most of our Summer holidays at a rugged West Coast surf beach called Piha where my husband Bryan was a volunteer Life Guard.  When we took Vincent to the the waters edge he just crawled on in. The waves would wash over him, I'd pick him up & wipe his face. Put him back down & he'd be straight back in again. Man you had to watch him like a hawk anywhere near water.  Being able to scan & scrap these old photos brings back such wonderful memories.

I scrapped these photos twice, The 2nd time I played with the colour.
