What We Do in the Summertime!

As you can see, reader response to the Bliss Complete Summertime Photo Contest was truly impressive! The summertime stars came out in full force for this contest, making for some fierce creative competition!

Picking a winner out of all these great entries was a tough job--but, I've done it! Enjoy all the entries and see who the WINNER is at the bottom of this post.

1. Josh & Isaac


Oh, what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
We play video games,
That have cars and planes,
On our TV with the big screen!
Is that what you do?
So do I!

2. Maureen & Her Wally World Friends

Reen's video entry can be viewed on her blog.

3. Laura & Brooke


Before (squeezing into her baby brother's size 6 mos. overalls)

Oh what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
Do you listen to Brooke,
scream and scream and scream,
for new overalls,
for that is the call,
so she can play and vedge,
in ones that won't give her a wedge,
so I look on Ebay,
And that saves the day,
As I find a new pair, in the right size,
For $3.99, I deserve a prize.
Is that what you do?
So do I.
ALLELUIA!!!


After--Look ma, no wedgie!

Update: Now that the 'newness' of having overalls has worn off
(after wearing them for 6 days straight, even in the 95 degree heat),
Brooke has decided to mix it up a bit by now wearing a shirt OVER the overalls!


4. Meredith & Lauren


Oh, what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
Do you go for a walk,
Lick a treat when it's hot,
Or read books in a box just your size?
Is that what you do?
So do I!



5. Baba & Dipsy




Oh, what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
Do you ride a big bike,
That is hooked up to mikes,
Only stopping to find a latrine?
Is that what you do?
So do I!

6. Maureen & Kenzie



Oh what do you do in the summertime
when all of the world is green?
I save the world as Super Pup
In my cape of purple sateen!
Is that what you do?
So do I!



7. Ann, Kate, Truman, Nana & Papa

Oh What Do You Do in the Summertime
When PaPa's legs are white?
Do You r-un and scream
or cry and hide
on the beach as the waves go by?
Is that what you do ?
NO, NOT I !!!!



Oh What Do You Do In The Summertime
With tanning products galore?
Do you graciously share
or offer to help
That's Not Enough, Use More!
Is That What You Do?
So Do I!!!!



Oh What Do You Do In The Summertime
With Grand kids Ready To Work
Do You Rub and Spray
and hope for the best
And wait for the magical day?
Is that what you do?
So Do I!!





Oh What Do You Do In The Summertime

When all your work pays off
Do you clap your hands and shout for joy
And Climb up on his knee?
(oh, wait...wrong song)
Is That What You Do ?
So Do I!!!



Oh What Do You Do In The Summertime
When Pa Pa's legs are TAN
Do you go to the beach, sporting your shorts
Ready to catch a ride?
Is That What You Do?
So Do I!!!!




8. Ryan & Tess



Oh, what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
Do you get a head start,
Learn to love modern art,
Shapes and colors on every side?
Is that what you do?
So do I!

9. Miriam & Tess



Oh, what do you do in the summertime,
When all the world is green?
Do you play "patriot,"
Wear a three-cornered hat,
And take in historical sites?
Is that what you do?
So do I!
