Sweet Summertime

Hello Friends, as most of you reading, I too have been on the go, go, go.....drinking in this sweet season called Summertime!  It's going too fast. A few nights ago I was visiting my niece's blog and she had this song playing, aptly named "The Summer." I'm in love.  It's playing right now.

 a magical night at my cousin Dave and Orpha's home for Dinner Club.  We're hosting it this Sunday and can hardly wait to get creative with our outdoor dining.....I think I'll set it up under the walnut trees out back.

Father's Day at my parents home.  We hired a bluegrass band to serenade our evening.  It was awesome. I grew up attending blue grass festivals with my parents, (hated every minute of it), but now I actually enjoy the music.  Oh my gosh, I'm getting old! 

One of our trips to the beach. We've been there twice already for several days at a time and plan to return the end of this month for one more week.The kids are at such great ages to enjoy the beach.
Paisley especially enjoys "the pool", (ocean)! "Look at the waves Paisley!" I said upon our first time walking onto the beach.....
she starting waving and waving. It was precious.

"CANDY BALL" that's what Luke calls cannon balls....and I'm not about to correct him! 

Enjoying one of our many days at Refreshing Mountain Camp.
There's nothing like being wrapped in a warm towel after a long day of swimming.

Our home away from home.  Our Summer home. LOL! The kids don't care if they're in a million dollar beach side mansion or a camper in the woods.  It's about being together!  That sounds cheesy, but it's the truth.  Even for myself.

Enjoy the final drips of Summer.....
