The Boys of Summer...

Nobody on the road, 
nobody on the beach. 
I feel it in the air, 
summer's out of reach.

  1. Looks like a fun filled summer (well, maybe not that ER trip!). Love all the pics, and the Big 80's music, of course.

  2. Oh that song took me right back, Val!

    Love your pictures...what a great way to remember the summer of 2013.

    Have a great week, my friend!

  3. I'm SO remember movin and grovin to that song and video. That's when MTV was safe to watch. Hard to believe it was once safe! Loved your pics. I agree with Kathleen...all fun but the ER.

  4. Oh, I'm trying to catch up on bloggies a little at a time!!

    I love that song. Reminds me of the summer we moved after 10th grade, from Minnesota to California...this song was times...

    Love your picture collages, fun times too!!

  5. Hi Valerie, love all your family pictures. You've have a good summer. And I see you're back to work. How's that going? I started working back in May and my hours have increased to 30 per week. It's good but busy. Blessings to you and your family.
