Winding Down Summer

We celebrated Labor Day weekend by heading up to the beach at Lake George, one of my very favorite places.  It’s so calm and lovely, and the kids have so much fun here.


They love jumping off the dock!



Liam enjoyed himself so much, splashing in the water and knocking down every sandcastle that his siblings tried to build!


The weather was great and it was the perfect way to say farewell until next summer.


We also headed to the track one more time. On our last visit, one of the jockeys gave Seamus and Grace a couple pairs of real jockey goggles, so of course we had to bring them back and try them out!


Seamus picked a winner!  Here he is with his winning ticket!


We squeezed a ton of fun into this holiday weekend and now we’re getting ready for a big week with school starting!  Kindergarten and First Grade…here they come!

What amazing pics! I love them! I too love Lakr George. I went there all the time as a kid! It is so awesome there! Tell Seamus and Grace that the Granshaws wish them a terrific year in kindergarten and first grade! Xoxo

Wow, looks like a wonderful goodbye to summer weekend (much better than all the couch veggie that we did)!! Miss you guys! Hope the school year starts off smoothly, we've already got 2 full weeks under our belts!

Ha. You made me laugh out loud again! Love that Liam squashed everything his brother and sister tried to build :o) looks like fun, and SO inviting right about now. Love the jockey goggles.
