hello, september

a birthday
the screened porch mudroom

Over the weekend N and I went with some good friends to the lake- unfortunately our boys had to stay home. We ate well and swam off the dock. We took it easy. There was a third birthday to celebrate and another with a three followed by a larger number. ; )

The sun was warm but the breeze was cool. The beach was fun until the lips turned blue. At night we put on sweatshirts and took sunset boat rides. The kids passed out tired and the grownups built a fire. It felt like a fitting end to the summer.

The little one started preschool yesterday and the boy voluntarily wore jeans today. He declared as he was getting dressed that he smelled the Apple Fest. The season is turning for sure.
