Good-By Summer

I can finally say it.. "Summer is over". A few weeks ago I hated the thought of summer with it's hours of sunshine, hours of sand and wind at the lake, fresh fruit by the buckets, sleeping in, sleeping under the stars, baby kittens, The sound of loads of fun as the kids play in the sprinkler, the stillness of reading under the shade tree, the fresh smell of laundry that has been dried in the hot summer sun.

This Picture is the exact moment of GOOD-BY SUMMER. This was the exact moment that I accepted the fact that fall was right around the corner. BUT first lets remember all the FUN times of summer!!

This was supposed to be the perfect family picture!! It did not happen, the rock was not big enough and the 2yr old was more worried about making sure he has his share of the rock!! LOL

Our night 'UNDER THE STARS'. NO!!! this was not my Idea! Their Daddy thought they needed the experience of sleeping 'Under the Stars'.. did we have fun?? everyone else got a good night of sleep, I know because i listened to them breath all night! I lay there planning the easiest way to get all 4 of my children to safety if a mountain lion (i remembered after everyone else was sleeping,someone spotting one at the exact place we were staying) should wonder what we are doing in his territory!!! Not my favorite part of the summer!!

Endless, FUN, days spent cooling off at the lake.
Swimming beauties, my daughters and their BFF!

Goggle Girl!

Strawberry picking birthday party!!! This was LOADS of fun!!!!

Kittens are always good for hours of entertainment.

My Woodland Fairy baby.

Little boys and mud puddles... A classic sign of summer.
T-Ball in the backyard.
So - long summer I will miss you! But i am getting more and more excited for fall..... Because I am soooo excited to wear my Fall HaddyGrace design on my girls!!! Within the next day or 2 I will have a sneak peek picture for you!! You will Love them! I Promise!!
Cannot wait for my new accessory design to start taking shape, so far it's still a picture in my head, but first chance I get I will be putting a pattern together!!!
So Welcome Fall with your colors, smells and rosy cheeks! Looking forward to hours spend with my sewing machine, and afternoons cuddled up with my 'little ones' and a STACK of picture books!!
