To say goodbye to our summer, we went to our friend’s house by the lake.
It is actually’s grandma and grandpa’s house. Their grandma and grandpa. A beautiful, beautiful place. And so much fun.
Every corner there’s something fun to do and see.
Look at their trucks? I love them!
It is relaxing, and so much fun to hang out with friends.
little girl of ours (OK, not so little) this summer she has learned to drive the bumper cars as well as the riding lawn mower. From never driving any motorized vehicle in her life to these past months trying two of them… we’ve seen she loves it!
And you know a grandpa is a grandpa to your grandkid’s friends too, right? This grandpa is having as much fun as she is! Do you see their faces? He spoils her every time we go.
We sat around. We rode the motor boat, we were pulled in the inner tube, swam and swam and swam, sat and talked, laughed, talked, laughed, played, knitted some too. We sat by the fire, ate s’mores, laughed and swam some more. Had delicious food, went thrifting (and found some fun stuff!) We laughed, picked blackberries, and talked, and laughed, and swam some more. What a weekend!
A beautiful sight. Seeing everyone swim, paddle. Also, seeing a bold eagle few times, all the geese, and ospreys fish right in front of our eyes. Wow… for me, all of this, sums up summer.
As a way to thank everyone for their hospitality, we made dinner one night. So much better when shared with friends. Right?
In the morning, from PJ’s to swimsuits. And at night, from swimsuits back to PJ’s. Doesn’t that tell you summer too?
Bonfire + talking + S’mores = Summer.
Cool trucks + Learning to drive (a lawn mower) = Summer.
Fun ‘stuff’ + Beautiful home = Summer.
Hanging out with friends + Life jackets = Summer.
Sun + Wet + Tired = Summer.
Yes, ’til the end. Playing, running, laughing, playing.
‘Til is time to put summer away.
A beautiful weekend. Filled with friends and great memories.
And a little something from someone special to remind her of growing up just a little more this summer and her first ‘driving’ (a riding lawn mower.)
