“Mom, we were framed! Whatever it was, we didn’t do it. They can’t prove a thing. And if we did do it, it was the dog’s fault.”

Judging by the look on those three faces, we’re going to go out on a limb and say they like trains. ;-)

“Hey, Mom! Look what happens when you pull this trigger thingy!”

The Splash Park never disappoints when it comes to capturing an amazing smile like this one. What a cutie.

camille4

In our humble opinion, this photo could be the national advertisement for eating strawberries. Gorgeous natural colors surrounding this gorgeous sweet face.

kathleen3

“Picked it. Made a wish. Blew on it. So we should be eating ice cream any minute now.”

sarah1

Nothing wrong with wearing a little ice cream while you eat it. Makes it more fun.

whitneyTcollage

We’re not sure how she got this brother and sister to be so sweet together, but we’d like to know her secrets asap.

whitney5

“Welcome aboard my boat. If you need me, I’ll be here looking cool and catching some rays.”

sandra2

The sand… the surf… and two sweet, beautiful faces. Does it get any better than this?

beth3

No summer is complete without a tire swing. Love how timeless this picture is and will be for decades to come.

coleman2

She was helping mom shop for lipstick at Sephora. We think she found one she likes. ;-)

While picking carrots in the garden, he got photo-bombed by a camera-loving dog.

“Mom, I hate to tell you this but the new play mat you bought has some plumbing issues.”

Four kids who are ALL looking at the camera AND smiling? How in the world did she pull it off? Impressive.

victoria4

Flip flops? Check. Tutu? Check. Frozen swimsuit? Check. Fabulous sunglasses and the natural born confidence to pull off this look? Double check.

laura2

Wow! What a gorgeous photo of giant bubble-making under a brilliant blue sky.

brittney2

Words cannot adequately describe how much we love this outfit. Rock that yellow baby turban, girl! You OWN this look.

Don’t let the summer zoom by without at least one bike ride and a cute kid.

He said, “Meme, will you narrate your garden and I’ll make a video?” Priceless.

desirae1

Double trouble? Nah, we think they’re double the cuteness.

Perfect summertime memory captured in this one special shot.

Look at this gorgeous green framework of trees! Great shot, mama!

Northwest Arkansas Kids of Summer 2015

Bedford Camera category logoOkay, we hate to brag but there’s no denying the evidence. The kids of Northwest Arkansas are just WAY above average when it comes to cuteness. As proof, we offer up a few of the snapshot submissions local moms have sent to us recently for our Summer Snapshot Contest, sponsored by Bedford Camera & Video.

(The contest winner gets a 16×20 print on canvas from Bedford Camera & Video, ready to hang on the wall!)

To submit a few snapshots (not professional pics) to the contest, send them to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. (You can send up to 5 photos each month.) Looking forward to seeing your pictures and showing them off for you here on nwaMotherlode.com. The Grand Prize Winner of the Summer Snapshot Contest will be announced in August.

jenniferh4You may find this hard to believe, but she picked out this outfit all by herself.

kathleen2The scenery in the background is breathtaking but it can’t hold a candle to those two sweet faces up front.

kathleen1Summer is a time for magical fairies who fly through the backyard.

jenniferh3And last but certainly not least… behold the bathing beauty in her bubbly habitat. Gorgeous.
