Summer Summer Summertime...FINALLY!

It seems like summer has only just started in New York with the terrible cold and rainy weather that we have had. It's finally humid and hot in New York and the kids need a way to cool off in the big city. A lot of parents take their little ones to the fountains and it's so wonderful. I usually complain about the extreme heat but this year I'm welcoming it...maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm leaving for a two-week vacation in three days!

It's Summer Time in New York City

I posted a few from this series before but this one is my favorite. I love how all of the kids are just doing their own thing and they are all having so much fun. Summer in the city isn't so bad when you have beautiful scenes like these.

Today's Soundtrack:
Carla Bruni - L'Amoureuse
I love the Italian First Lady of France and her fashion sense and her beautiful voice...

..the bad thing is that Carla is quite "ashamed" to be italian , and of course we're ashamed of her!!!!

Yay for vacations and hot, sunny weather! I managed to squeeze in a beach day today, in spite of the clouds. The summer's winding down fast and I intend to make the most of it!

You're very lucky to be going away on vacation! I need one so badly myself... LOL to Carlotta's comment about Carla's being ashamed to be Italian. LOL

thanks, everyone!

Carlotta, shame on her for that!!! In the US she is widely loved and known for her fashion sense and for being Mrs. Sarkozy...it's too bad. I never understand when people are ashamed of who they are or where they come from...

I love this - reminds me of my childhood days!

And have a wonderful trip - sometimes you just need to get out of the city and return later to be refreshed!!

I think that we took shots on the same day at around the same time at Washington Square Park. I say this because I think that there are twins in your shot wearing the same swimsuit. I have a shot that is so similar to this with the the same twins . . . And I think I posted it on my blog as well . . . Wow.
