It's dark and cool, and quiet as a mouse.
Who doesn't squeak much.
We're all doing fine. Here's a photo essay of the last month of our summer vacation!
We slept. Lots and lots of summer naps and sleeping in.
We admired the family of falcons who spent their summer teasing the neighborhood dogs. If you look close, you can see all four of them.
We did apricots.
Oh, did we do apricots.
Canned, dried, juiced...but mostly picked up off the grass and threw in the corner of the garden. Mmm-mmm.
We enjoyed beautiful summer sunrises (on the way home from work).
We took (more) pictures of the Beast.
And told him funny dog jokes so he'd laugh.
We ate. Lots. YUM.
We played with friends (and while we were so busy taking pictures of Wyatt and Camille being cute, we totally walked off without Jana. Temple Square: If you're gonna lose your kids, that's the place to do it!).
And the rest of the summer we spent in the wading pool. If it was full of water we swam...if it was empty, we did this!
In conclusion, summer was a blast. As always, I am thrilled for the coming of fall and cooler weather, although this year is much more bittersweet. But change brings new adventures...and gorgeous fall leaves! We wish you lots of love and a splendid school year!
Love and fresh tomato sandwiches with fresh peaches for dessert,
