Oh how it feels good to be home. I did have fun. But I am soooooo glad to finally feel like I can settle in. Morgan starts preschool soon and is taking on more activities this year. I am just busier these days so I'd like a day to stay home and organize. Good grief!

The lake was a blast. There was a ski boat and rafts and floaties and all that jazz, so we had a great time. I tubed, Steve tubed and did some wake boarding, and even Morgan spent a minute on a tube, lol, although she did prefer riding in the boat better. I wasn't on it this time because PJ was napping, but here's some pictures from the shore:

This is what Morgan looked like the last time she did it:

Oh my heart..... the poor thing. And oh dear, I had to go back to 2006 to find this picture. That means she was about 2 1/2. She really wanted to go. The problem is that she rode with dad. He's heavy, so the boat has to go really fast to get him up and out of the water enough not to splash them heavily. But you want to go slow because you don't want to dump them because there's a small lass on that tube too. So what happened both times is that the ride lasted all of 15 seconds because she was getting sprayed in the face and started crying before they could get going. At least she tried it again this year! I was just thinking that 2 1/2 was too young, but PJ is close to that age and she wanted to have a go on the tube, we just didn't get a chance to take her. But we should have. Someone brought one of those two seaters that looks like a couch and it would have been fun to have all four of us on one. I don't think the splash would have been a problem. Maybe next year.

We had a great time. It was still nice to come home on Saturday, though. I am just anxious for all things that fall brings. Fall is my favorite time of year!

So I missed yet another reveal night at Studio Calico, but I can now share my layouts from this month. I have a LOT of kit left and just ran out of time or I would have created more for my gallery there.

I held out the camera and snapped a photo while we were on the Ferris Wheel. I wish I had gotten more of Morgan's head in the photo, but all in all, I am very happy with this pic!

I just loved this kit.

So that's it. HI! It's so good to be home! Today it's September. Fall is just around the corner. Yippeee! :) Davinie
