Here’s what summertime joy looks like

On Tuesday, we asked you to share some of your favorite summertime snapshots with us, and you guys did NOT disappoint! We’ve received so many cute pics and we’ll be sharing them on the homepage over the next several weeks. But since it’s Friday, we thought we’d send you into the weekend with a photo that is the visual definition of summertime joy.

We hope your weekend is as joyful as this adorable baby feels when he’s on the swing.

Dear Baby Nathan… Has anyone ever told you that your smile is just the best? We bet your mama has. Happy Friday!

If you’d like to share some photos in our Summer Snapshot Contest, you still have time!
