Kids in Summer



...his bare toes curling and uncurling as they soak up the summer sun for the first time...



...the way her blonde hair comes out of its "pony" around her face and springs into tiny ringlets...



...his determined way of practicing throwing and hitting the badminton birdie. for close to an hour...



...her toenails painted a chipping, neon orange...



...the way they munch their corn on the cob, butter dripping down their chins, in no particular organized way...



...his rounded baby belly in a grey onesie...



...green popsicle dripping stickily down their chins and onto their chests...



...nerdy looking sunglasses that they feel so "cool" sporting...



...doughy, exposed thighs just begging to be kissed...



...squeals and splashes coming from the kiddie pool...



...his fascination with squirt guns...



...her fascination with baby dolls in the stroller...



...his baby-fascination with...me...



...crunching popcorn in the cool dark of a movie theatre...



...a sweaty hand reaching for mine in the last few minutes of our walk...



...wet heads resting on my shoulder for story time after an evening bath...
