The days are a little cooler, aren't they? The crispness of Fall is just around the corner. We can feel summer winding down, making way for Autumn.

For our family it's been a wonderful summer with lots of change and even some significant new beginnings. But in between packing up our previous house and moving into a new one, we also got to celebrate the beauty of a sister's wedding, enjoy Newfoundland for the first time, and spend time with many loved ones first in Yew York then in Ottawa then in Prince Edward Island. Between the blessed busyness of packing and travelling and vacationing, I also had a busted computer for the past month so I kind of wound up taking an unplanned blogging break. But now, before the summer concludes and a new season begins, I'm itching to get some pictures posted before they fade into the background and out of memory.

So here we go. The summer in pictures. I plan to post quite a few summer posts in the next couple days, get caught up, and be ready for a return to writing articles on here in September. Browsing through all these pictures quickly like this, I'm reminded afresh of what a wonderful summer it's been and I'm filled with thanks for the time we were able to spend with people we love in places we love.


New York Part II

The second part of our time in New York was spent at the beautiful home of Grandma Morey, Grammy, and Uncle Jay, Aunt Sarah, and little Eva. Although Jake was a bit under the weather for much of this time, it was a wonderful visit with family and loved ones. The gang of cousins (and extended cousins) is getting bigger and bigger! It was great to see *almost* all of them together at one time. 

Thank you, all of you, for such a wonderful and fun filled week! We love you all very much and are thankful that you always want our loud, crazy crew to come and stay. We miss you all very much!
