Cottage Weekend Tradition...

Yet another year of rainy weather for our weekend at the cottage. Does it really matter when all we do is enjoy the day chatting and eating? Who wants to really put on a bathing suit anyway? ;-) This year the weather sunk to a new low though when we actually turned on the heat on August 22nd!
Here is one of our self timer traditional portraits to remember another great time together.

Another fun year of summer sleepovers comes to an end! :-) Lily and I went to the beach, made a patio stone, went to Suessical, jumped on the tramp, played in the park, saw the street performers, and did some scrapbook pages! I returned a very tired little girl to her mom and dad! ;-) I'm so happy I caught some great shots of our time together.

Beach Day with Em

On Emily's sleepover we went to the dog beach for the day! She was in heaven as she got to see (and tell us the breed) for so many dogs! There was even a TINY 6 week old puppy that she got to hold. When we finally left that day we had tired doggos, tired Ems, and I'll admit...I fell asleep on the ride home too. It was a great day in the sun!

"So, what's the title all about?"

"You only get one spin on the marble, Lese!" has been the theme of the last several months as I've been hesitating to make decisions.....Can I really go to Austria? ...for two weeks? Should I get a new computer right now?...etc. Braymer and Aaron have a way of keeping me from stressing out too much about the details and inspiring me to enjoy life! "....only one spin, baby!"
So, the answer has become YES more often and I haven't regretted it once.

Special Time with Mary

I just spent a packed 2 days with Mary! We went shopping at the scrapbook store, made a movie on the computer, created a garden patio stone, jumped on the trampoline, went to Street Performers, watched BOLT, saw the play Click, Clack, Moo, ate lunch and jumped in waves at the beach, and scrapbooked 4 pages of events! The only reason I didn't fall asleep on the way with Aaron to take Mary back home was b/c I had to keep talking to her to keep her awake!

Earlier this week we also had Skylar and Camden for two sleepover nights while Niki & Jimmy eased in to bringing baby Molly home! We too had busy days of lunch at the beach, craft projects, a trip to the library, and a visit to the farmer's market!
It's definitely time for a good night's sleep before Emily comes for her sleepover in a few days!

Something to add to my "to-dos?"

Should I really add another thing to my list? Especially something on the computer? I'm hoping that this will be a way to quickly journal about the little daily things on my mind or events to be remembered. If I can get the hang of it I'm also hoping to streamline communication for school and maybe try this there. We'll see!
