43 Instagram Photos That Perfectly Capture Why We Love Summer

If a mom goes down a water slide, and there’s no one around to post it on Instagram, did she really make a splash?

Pool days, beach trips, amusement parks, gorgeous sunsets – we’re all for living in the moment, but let’s be serious, we also love to share our best ones on social media.

Give us a break, we’re parents. Our phones are stuffed full of adorable photos of our kids that the world NEEDS to see.

So to celebrate the season of sun and fun, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Instagram pics that perfectly capture the joy of summer – sticky ice cream smiles and all!
