Lakeside Relaxation

I can scarcely believe it, but today is the first day of school in this area.
There's no doubt about it...autumn is just around the corner.
But most unbelievable to me is this:
Tyler starts kindergarten today.
If you remember us bringing him home to the farm after his birth, then we have been friends
for over 5 years now!

Hubbs and I spent a wonderful, restful weekend here...
( our weather has been spectacular...highs in the 70's, nights in the 50's )

our dear friends' lake house.

Kayaking, conversation, 

beautiful sunsets,

half moons...

 over shimmering water,

fabulous meals,

and two evenings of this...

and this...

gave us the perfect mini vacation.

I knitted and watched hummingbirds visit this...

On my way out of town, I stopped to visit my pink fairy princess.
She slept on my lap through the entire visit.

And when it was time for me to leave, Sam voiced his disapproval.

It's great to feel loved!

We returned home Sunday afternoon to catch up on farm chores
and visit with our (animal) friends.

I have decided that a weekend away is the perfect vacation for me.
Much longer than that, and I miss my friends on the farm.

Today I am taking a bit of a road trip to pick up Red's new pony cart and harness.
It's the start of a whole new adventure...
and one that I will document as it unfolds.

So glad you were able to have a sweet little getaway for the weekend. Perfect temps and sweet baby face time. Can't believe the little man is off to school already...they grow up so fast.

I CANNOT believe that Tyler is heading off to kindergarten already! What an exciting time for him! (and his family!) Your friend's lake property is gorgeous-I agree, a perfect amount of time to be away from home! (I'm a real homebody) Glad you had a great weekend! Meghan

Oh this wee pink fairy princess just stops my heart... What a doll..
The photos of your friends lake house and surroundings are just beautiful! How peaceful it must have been.
Thank Sam for the laugh! Loved the video.

So nice to see you had come over for a visit... Yes, Jasper is a real card... Thank you for taking time, I know how very busy you must be, and I really do appreciate your visits.
