Several years ago, when we all gathered at the cottage, Daughter-in-law brought along a lap quilt she was working on.
It was her first attempt at quilting, and since none of us had ever attempted a quilt, we were all duly impressed with her new skill.
This year she brought along the most recent quilt she's been working on.
It contains scraps from all the quilts she has made so far!
Isn't it GORGEOUS?!

Those children whose birthday it was not, didn't.
Funny how that works.
But time marches on and they continue to grow up.
I wouldn't want it any other way.
Although I DO love going back in time in pictures to remind myself that, yes, those adorable, interesting, funny kids who used to show up at my house early in the morning all those years ago, really DID start out small and have grown into kind, thoughtful, caring people.
If you haven't replaced the traditional Hershey bar with lemon curd, you are really missing out.
It is amazing!

THGGM was already up and enjoying his last morning on the deck. There is just a little bit of sunshine on the trees. The lake is calm, but it is already HOT and MUGGY. Can't complain though, this is the first day of that for the entire week! Yay! Although I have to say, it made it MUCH easier to pack up, knowing that we were all heading to AIR-CONDITIONED homes!
This has been our seventh year renting this cottage.
Each year has been wonderful.
Good-bye Cottage, see you next year!

It looked like another amazing sunset could be on the horizon soon.
All SEVEN of them were wonderful.
I am well aware that the sun sets every day in my neighborhood, but it's just to neighborhood-y to capture the wonders of a sunset on the water.
It is now time for bed.
I still have to finish the last chapters of my book, so good night!
