Summer took a LONG time to arrive ~
and now it seems to have disappeared again.
It's the way it is in this part of the world.
We make the most of it.
When the days are warm,
it's always a joy to go to the beach.
We have a local favourite ~
It includes a play area and fire pits.
We were there one afternoon/evening last week.
If you click on the image below,
and look into the distance,
you will see Calvin (in a red t-shirt ~
just to the left of the swing set pole),
and Austin (in a yellow t-shirt ~
at the very far right of the picture) playing Frisbee!
It was an unplanned surprise that I captured
them in this photo! How fun is that? :)
"Our spot" for the first part of the evening.
Can you see the white mountain-top
in the middle of the sky just above the umbrella?
That's Mount Baker ~ pretty, isn't it? :)
The boys had a little Frisbee game going while
Fraser and Emma were at the park ~ I even joined in.
Howie was with the other two ~
he got a chance to play a little later on.
Water activities were enjoyed ~ Of course!
We ended the evening with a cook-out ~
What a treat!
We were so smoky when we arrived home ~
showers were needed all around.
But, it was well worth it!
We have plans for day outings locally this summer ~
It's a blessing to block a day off here and there
to enjoy the area the LORD has placed us in.
What about you?
Do you have any summer plans?
Please do tell!
Happy Summer to you all!
