It’s hard to believe it’s the end of August and our golden, lazy, summer days are waning. Another summer filled with happy laughter, cannonball splashes. bobbing rafts, sunset boat rides, locust droning and warm breezes blowing against cooled bodies in wet bathing suits.

It’s hard to believe it’s the end of August and our golden, lazy, summer days are waning. Another summer filled with happy laughter, cannonball splashes. bobbing rafts, sunset boat rides, locust droning and warm breezes blowing against cooled bodies in wet bathing suits. Here are some of the good and magical moments of our summer.
Days of boating …
Feeding the geese and ducks …
PaPa’s First Mate and Skipper … This look on our little grandson’s face is priceless as he samples the duck food (pumpernickel bread) and tells me … “Grandma, this tastes yucky!” (: (: (:
Days of floating …
Precious lullaby moments …
These white herons flew in from their day wandering’s to roost and “bed down” in the boughs of this tree for the night.
Deer grazing on the green grasses beside the lake at twilight.
Watching summer sunsets tinge the lake color to shades of pink and purple.
There were summer “Cousin Days” and playing hide ‘n seek …
Riding piggy-back …
Riding skate boards … painting faces … climbing walls at the park … happy faces and happy hearts! “Your cousin is your very first friend.”
Enjoying fun family tradition’s … Sand Pail Ice Cream!
“PaPa and Grandma’s House … where cousins become best friends.” This is what king size beds were made for … sleepover’s with my grand babies snuggled next to me and sweet, little hands patting and holding mine in the night.
All in all, it was a never to be forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going … ~L. M. Montgomery
Summer slips away in a lilac sky.
It was indeed “a good and magical time.” Goodbye summer, we’re going to miss you!
