Summer's End

Remember that year we spent the summer wrapped up in our family?  The summer with a newborn and a 3-year-old, when time didn't matter and the days all melted into one.  The summer full of magically ordinary days.

We watched An American Tail on the big screen and got ice cream from the truck when we heard its familiar tune.  We took family naps some days and skipped naps on the others.
We baked chocolate chip cookies and licked the beaters.
We snuggled in our jammies, and watched cartoons...because every day was Saturday.  We went for boat rides at the lake and jumped into the deep end of the pool.
We introduced our boys to the vastness of the ocean and built sand castles on the beach.
We did little things like bowling and reading and trips to QT, and big things, like watching our little one roll over for the first time.  We took turns making the baby laugh.

It was the summer that went by too quickly.  The summer we did everything together.
