Summer

Winners of the 2016 Kids of Summer photo contest

There is nothing more adorable than kids laughing, splashing and enjoying summer. We received so many cute entries in our Kids of Summer photo contest this year that it was hard to pick just one for the cover.

The "Boys of Summer" received the most votes and was also chosen as the best shot for the cover. The football buddies from Severna Park won a $100 Visa gift card from our sponsor Labbe Family Orthodontics.

Check below to see the other winners of this year's contest. To see all of the great entires visit chesapeakefamily.com/kids-of-summer.
