Enjoying the Summer

Boy, this summer is flying by so quickly!
We've all been enjoying it though, especially this past week. The temperatures and humidity were much lower so I was finally able to get the A/C turned off and the windows back open for at least a few days. 
Hubby was on vacation too! We didn't do anything fabulous but we really enjoyed the "down time". We did get the kids out to fish a few times. They are easy to make happy!
A pond, a few fishin' poles and worms = happy kiddos.

Momma likes fishing too! I just take a pair of gloves to use as I bait the hook and someone else has to remove the fish when I catch one. (I don't like the slimy feeling of either!)

We also had a family picnic to celebrate my Aunt Joan coming in from Kentucky. There were about 40 of us that were able to attend. Here is my Dad with his sister (Joan) hamming it up.

Of course, there has been plenty of swimming going on.
A good many evenings just sitting around the fire pit. I love the fact that the kids (all of them, including the oldest) still enjoy spending weekends with us doing this. I'm sucking it all up now because I know it won't last forever. 

Other than that there was plenty of time just relaxing while watching movies and for me there was stitching time.

I had to do some catching up - glad to hear you are getting some down time (vacation-staycation) -- looks like you have been busy with the garden! Happy Graduation too! Enjoy the balance of the summer which is slipping by way to fast!
