Last Days of Summer

Thank you, Beth for the beautiful new skin. I love it! Aren't I lucky to have such a talented sister (she's beautiful, too - she's got it all!) And I even managed to get the comments working myself. Yay!

Well, these are the last days of summer and despite the voiciferous protest that I am sure will be launched by Bean and Pea, I love summer and I always feel sad as it starts to fade. I have a hard time enjoying fall because I know winter is coming and I just don't like winter. I am sure it all stems from my childhood in Northern BC where winter lasts from October to May and sometimes September to June.... I love summer, the warm, soft air, the fragences that waft on the evening breezes, swimming in the lake, summer clothes - not having to put on layers before you go outside, fresh produce, fruit....I could go on and on. Anyways, the last days of summer are precious to me! We made the most of it yesterday by spending the day at Ellison. Here we are:

Kaetlyn and Meg (who's visiting for the week) jump off the rocks into the water while I watch from the tube.











My beautiful daugter, Kaetlyn, trying to get up the courage to jump off the cliffs... Will she do it?


































I love this picture - Dean mid air - jumping off the cliffs.


We had fun. We swam, we jumped, we laid on the warm rocks, I snorkled around and marvelled at the huge schools of baby salmon, we roasted hot dogs for dinner, ate chips and blueberries, laughed and played together. I love summer....

Yay!!! I fixed my comments ALL BY MYSELF! I used the google group help thing and I finally figured out that the code was in the wrong place... It only took me like.... 5 hours or so of fiddling...

I share your love for summer. I hate it when it ends. Its so sad. I feel like my summer has gone by so fast and I have done almost nothing.

nothing but BIRTH A SON into the world!!

Exactly what I was going to say. Get used to it. Your life just changed FOREVER. The whole way you think about time and about what you get accomplished will never be the same.

Yes, I suppose you're right. Time has just flown though. I cant believe he's almost 2 months old!

andrea do you feel safer in a tube?

Chick said...

Hehe - you know I AM afraid of deep water but not when I am so close to shore. The water is really deep there and I just wanted to hang out and keep an eye on Megan. The tube is more relaxing than treading water.

i feel exactly the same way about summer. i never want it to end and dread winter and fall means the end of something good and the beginning of something bad.
