Summer Fun

Somehow, it's September. I don't know about you, but I feel like I blinked and summer came and went! How can the 3 "best" months of the year be over? 

In August, we took a long weekend trip to Pennsylvania to spend time with our family. We enjoyed visiting, sitting outside (we had beautiful weather!), took a trip to IKEA (yes!!!), spent a day at the beach, and even had time for golf. I didn't take a ton of photos, partly because we were too busy enjoying ourselves and partly because certain people don't like their picture taken (you know who you are).

My niece, Syndey, just turned 8! She's looking more and more grown up, each time I see her. She is very sweet, helpful, creative and has a great sense of humor.

I asked Morgan to show me her "excited" face when we got to IKEA. I think my face looked much the same. I was pretty excited. Morgan is such a sweetie who loves to cuddle - along with being very independent and a bundle of giggles.

On the red carpet, after an afternoon of shopping. I could have spent a few more hours wandering around that Swedish wonderland. 

A relaxing, sunny day at the beach. Just what I needed.

Toes in the sand and umbrellas as far as the eye could see. 

 Of course, a little football. That hunk winding up for a throw is all mine! 

On our last day, while the guys were out on the "real" links, the girls played some mini golf. 

I'm probably the last person that should be teaching anyone how to golf! Morgan was a very good student and did really well! She looked too cute swinging that tiny club. 

Sydney and I played the last hole together and somehow got a hole in one - against impossible odds! I still don't know how. It was very exciting. The bell sounded and she won a free round of golf! 

I wish I could go back to that spot on the beach. So beautiful and relaxing! Ah, summer, I miss you already. Don't leave too quickly, ok? Maybe you can linger until late October...
