Summer's Not Over Yet!!!

Yes, Labor Day has come and gone, and YES, we were fooled with a little "taste" of fall for a few days, but summer is not over yet. I'm not wearing my white jeans anymore (apparently whomever made up THAT rule was NOT from the South!!!) We are still sweating it out here in the South and trying to enjoy every minute of it!!!!
The boys enjoy lots of bike and scooter time in our new FLAT driveway and they also have come to love the sprinkler system!!!!







Unless you live under a rock, you know that College Football season is well under way. We kicked it off last Saturday with FABULOUS weather! We all went to the quad and had a blast!!!

I didn't take my camera on the quad, but rather took a few pictures before we left the house!!!





















Sunday of Labor Day weekend, I decided at the last minute (cause that's how I like to roll) to invite a few families over for a cookout to break in our outdoor kitchen and fireplace. I figured it was just cool enough for a fire and some roasted marshmallows!!!!

















It's not everyday that you see someone standing beside a fire barefoot! We live dangerously around here!!!!







Then, to prove that summer is still with us, last night after church, while the boys were outside riding their bikes waiting on Emma Claire to be dropped off, Wilson spotted a bull frog! I got the flashlight and we were able to find him under a bush! Wilson in all his bravery and quickness caught him and we held onto him until sissy got home!!!!!
He's a big one - eeeeewwwww!!!!




Henderson was gladly the flashlight holder in lieu of holding the frog - he's a little on the "fraidy cat" side!!!!



Wilson - not afraid of ANYTHING!!!!!







Is he not the biggest frog you've ever seen????
After Sissy got home, they came inside and had some fun playing with polly pockets!!!!


We have a 3rd barstool, but Henderson and Emma Claire like to be close!!!!





Happy Summer (still) to you! Enjoy it!!!!
