We had a pretty pathetic end to the 2014 Summer Season. The whole month of August was cool and wet. If it wasn't raining, it was too windy or chilly to put a bathing suit on. So we had limited opportunity to use our pool these last few weeks. I optimistically packed our pool supplies, snacks and sometimes dinner every morning in hopes that the kids and I would go straight to the pool after work/school. But more times than not we ended up coming home. We did spend a couple goose bumped evenings taking a quick dip in the pool - struggling to make the most of it!
Last Sunday, Holden came for a sleep over. Instead of attempting to go to the pool, We all hopped in the car and explored Standley Lake some more. This time we ventured up to the North side of the lake and discovered a great little campground, boating and fishing docks, and a bunch of ducks. Should have brought some bread crumbs!
We've taken advantage of the cool evenings and spent more time right here on our cul-de-sac riding bikes and hanging out with our neighbors. We loved meeting the newest addition to our neighborhood, the Souza's. They have 4 girls! Can you imagine???
Baby Penelope is not pictured here...she's just 6 weeks old! But these guys are enjoying fresh apples from the neighbors tree. They each had 3 or 4!
