Here is my mother's family gathered on the front steps in Hawaii where they all lived. I really don't know if this was taken in the summer, but it does remind me of family get togethers that so often occur during this time of year.
Not many smiley faces here, but I think that not many people smiled in the photographs of years ago. I know they were a fairly happy lot, albeit somewhat serious about life, religion and the rules of society in the early 1900's.
Wherever this summer takes you, I hope it is filled with family, fun and love. Just remember to "Say Cheese" when that camera goes click!
