Summer's Sweet End

My son, Jacob and his wife, Dana and the 3 kids (Hunter 6, Gavin 4 and Madison 2) came over for a swim and hot dogs on the grill. I asked a friend to help out at the pool and come over for some cook-out goodies after. A cook-out with family and friends is always nice and the horrendous heat that we have been having is finally gone. It was the perfect day for the pool.

Danielle played water-polo for 5seasons, is working on her life-guard cert and will be going for her water-safety training cert after that. It is always good to have an extra set of eyes on the pool with 3 little ones running around.

What a blast. I actually got in the pool my self. I was just going to show Gavin that it was not that cold. I had capri pants on and the water felt so good, I took another step and then I was wet to my knees. It felt so good that I just waded in, clothes and all.

Ice cold watermelon on the patio and a fun game of "Go Fish" and my day is complete. What a great day. I hope that your holiday was wonderful, too.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
