Family Saturday.....♥️

 My boyfriend and I went to the cottage on Thursday afternoon...
Man oh man...was it hot!!
At least the breeze from the Lake kept us comfortable...
And we found shady spots to sit...

On Saturday the kids came out!!
Minus my daughter Lissa and husband Jeff...:o(
They were getting a new Puppy...Freckles...a Cockapoo, that day...
So...they did not come out...

It turned into a gorgeous day...hot...but the Lake was very inviting...
Miss V had not been in the Lake yet..as it was always rough...
But this day...proved to be the best day...even a small patch of sand!!
There were lots of stones near the shore...so Papa helped her out...
She wanted him to carry her...so he obliged!
Her Mommy got her suit on...
And I also joined in...
She loved laying on the surfboard!!






















My son took these 3 pictures...

Shows all of us out in the water...

She did not want to come out!! 











A few cheesies and a cold drink hit the spot...


And a bit of coloring in the shade...


And watering the flowers and filling the birdbath!! 






Dinner was on the sunporch...





Chili...fresh crusty bread and Ceasar Salad... 






Pralines and Cream Ice Cream for dessert! 













The sunset was glorious!!



And a few fireworks from the neighbours!!

Perfect ending to a perfect day!! 

Hope you all had a great long weekend...

Still darn hot here...had a downpour for about 10 minutes this afternoon...

Heat is expected for a few more days...geesh!!

Boyfriend is away on business...

I spent a lot of time at Michaels and Marshalls this morning!! 

Been putzing around the house...

And I have 2 banana blackberry loaves in the oven...

With a new crumble on top...

Having a friend for lunch tomorrow...have not seen her in a while!

Hoping for some good gossip!! hahaha! 

Enjoy your evening...

                  Cheers!   :o)

  2. What a lovely happy post, Linda. Little Miss V is getting adventurous, braving the big lake, and looks totally adorable in her birdie dress. Family times are the greatest, and with fireworks too; very nice fire pics. Hope you give us the recipe for the new crumble - sounds yum. I wish we had Michaels here - I loved it when visited it in Canada. Happy week!!

  7. I'm so happy that the water was calm enough for Miss V! And warm I hope. She looks like she is having a ball. She has such expressive eyebrows and high color...I just adore your pictures of her.

    Memorable times and meals...so wonderful, Linda.

    Hugs and good times ahead.

  12. Looks like a delightful day . . . (HOT TOO!)
    But what fun to have the lake to play in . . .
    Tender young feet and toes don't like the stones much . . .
    Next year she will probably run right in to the water. . . .

    1. I had water shoes for her, but she did not want them!!
      No problem...Papa was more than happy to carry her!
      There is sand, once you get past the rocks...

  14. What a perfect day at the lake! I am not minding this heat one bit although the east wind yesterday really cooled it down and today, so far, it's cloudy, foggy, misty and damp but the heat is supposed to return this afternoon. We fly away tomorrow to Calgary. Yay!! xo Pam

  15. What a perfect long weekend you created! Being beside water in the hot and muggy weather ... nothing better in my opinion. Love Miss V's dress with all the birds ;) All these photos paint the perfect summertime scene Linda. Enjoy your fresh-baked loaves!

  18. Aren't I the lucky one to have a slice of your banana blackberry loaf today and the rest of our yummy lunch. Fun to catch up with you and to see all of your crafty knick knacks in and around your house. A very happy 43rd Anniversary to you and the boyfriend and thanks again for the lovely shared time. :)

  19. I'm just catching up tonight. Love this post with the family gathered together for a meal on that adorable porch. And I noticed the plates on the kitchen wall...love it. Miss V is growing too fast, just like our Riley. Isn't it great to have them living close so we can enjoy them often. Her birdie dress is so cute. I'd wear that. lol. I'm sure you are hoping to milk this summer for all it's worth. The humidity has finally left us and now it feels like it should. Loving the last days of summer.

    1. Hi Deb...thanks for taking the time to come back and read this one!
      A lot of those plates came with the cottage...not on the wall...but in the cupboards!
      They brighten things up, I think!
      Heading out there tomorrow...just leaving to pick up Miss V♥️
      Today is gorgeous!!

  20. Just discovered your blog, and will just have to come back to visit...especially since Miss V and I share a lovely name! Not very common, as names go...but I've always enjoyed it ;-). Your lake cottage looks delightful.

  22. I'm so glad I found this post Linda. I can't believe how much Miss V has grown! Simply amazing!!! It seems like she was a little baby just yesterday. I LOVE that picture of her watering. I can't wait until my grandkids come next year and help me water. Enjoy every single solitary moment, Linda. They are priceless:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, Linda...
