I can't say enough about how beautiful our summer has been. Last year it was cold and rainy and this year, nothing but sunshine. I don't think you will find too many Mainers complaining as we start to enter fall.

And although I have been busy with my paper, glue and scissors, we have made it a point to get outside and enjoy it as much as possible.

Last weekend, we took a quick trip up to my uncle's log cabin in Rangeley, about 2 1/2 hours from here. It had actually cooled off a bit - as you will notice from the sweatshirts- but it was like a warm fall day. The kids toasted s'mores by the fire and the next day they played in the water and Scott and my uncle kayaked. It was one of those unplanned but great getaways!

When Shauna saw me on the hammock, she came running over and wanted to cuddle. I thought to myself that we would probably both end up upside down on the ground but we didn't! And the look on her face...what more could you ask for!!!
