Linking Up With: On the Edge,


  1. This post just embodies summer. I love this so much. Even within a pandemic there is fun to be had. Thank you for sharing all of these pictures. :)

    1. Thank you! It was fun to go back some of our old summer photos!

  2. Love how you and the guys spend so much time outside.

    1. Aw, thank you! I do find I have to work harder to get them outside more now that they're older.

  3. Kids always seem to love water, no matter where it is! The popsicle looked yummy! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 14, open until July 26. All party entries shared if social media buttons installed.

  4. Oh wow! It looks like you have so much fun! It must be so wonderful to live on a lake! x

    1. It almost always is! I just don't enjoy it much when there's a big storm or when it's freezing cold in the winter and the wind shakes our house.

    1. I wished you did too; you'd be a great neighbor!

  6. I love all these activities! It's way too hot here in Phoenix right now for us to spend much time outside. I can't wait to get back outside in a month or two. xo

    1. We typically only get a few really HOT days in summer. Usually it's between 80 & 90 (sometimes like today it's even just in the upper 70's) so not that bad at all. Of course, winter can be awfully cold though.

  7. I think you might have the best life ever! So many fun things to do. That last one, though, the sunset! Wow. That is breathtaking and I bet so inspiring to see every day. Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful things with us!


    1. LOL. Thank you! I fully admit we don't often get sunsets like that but when we do-- Wow!!
