"All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world."- L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams
As I type this post, I'm sitting at a table in my hotel room, enjoying this fabulous view:
We're taking a little time out of our busy lives, to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. But instead of a romantic getaway for two, we've opted for a mini family getaway with the kids, and so far, we've been having a blast.
We arrived in a torrential downpour of rain. Nervous that the sunny weather we had wished for wouldn't come to life, we bundled up and headed out for a family walk along the beach.
We went for a swim in the bath-warm outdoor pool while ice cold raindrops tickled our noses. Then we dressed up and went for some dinner and dancing.
After some family dancing, and steak and lobster, we went up to our hotel room, pulled on our comfy jammies, snuggled up, and watched The Lorax (which was simply adorable, and possibly a repeat!).
The next morning we woke up to the most beautiful blue sky and couldn't wait to get outside. We ordered french toast and belgian waffles, suited up in our bathing suits, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses, and headed out for some summer fun.
We cruised the lake on our boat, and came across a private spot with a path that lead to this little piece of heaven:
Unfortunately, the spray from the falls was ice cold, so we checked them out, turned and ran out of there! We picnicked on the water, and then headed back for some fun on the sandy beaches.
Only half way through our little getaway, and so far so good! I hope that you've all had a chance to enjoy the summer weather and all of the special family memories that come with this fabulous season!
