Making Memories

summerfun2

The scent of Coppertone lotion and chlorinated swimming pool water, always evokes happy summertime memories for me.

We are spending a few days, at the lake, with Gabi and Drew and their mommy, Michelle.

With 90 degree temps and heat indexes even higher, we get to the pool bright and early.

After a morning of swimming and playground fun, lunch on the deck.

Just looking at all of that lake water and pool water makes me feel cooler! It's cooking in KC, too! Just hauled in my Costco load and I'm drenched. . . and not from frolicking in fun conditions like YOU! :) Thanks for sharing your fun! dana

Babs said...

Aren't y'all having the most fun? I got a kick out of the photo of the grandchildren, with Molly waiting patiently under the table.
How adorable!

Claudia said...

I have those same sense memories when I smell suntan lotion! Glad you're having a good time with the grandkids.

So glad you've got your hat! Here it has been over 100 every day for days. No rain in sight. Ninety-nine in the shade. We're talking HOT. So happy to see you enjoying your grandkids and their mother. IN the shade!

How fun! I'm there with you loving certain genres of summer as well. I love your summer hat. So pretty! I also enjoyed seeing your mantel project. Very attractive installation as always. Thank you for sharing great projects. Always look forward to your posts.

ahhh...lookin' good, Pat.
Yes, CopperTone and swimming pools take me back to a sweet sweet time...back when I never even THOUGHT to wear a hat to screen the beautiful sunrays off my face..when I didn't wear anything other than a swim suit..never even a cover-up..giggling teen age girls, worshiping the sun..Now, I cover nearly every inch!! :)
Having fun with the grands makes summertime special..

Pat, I love the way that first photo is styled. I could almost smell the sun lotion! Your grandchildren are so cute, and you look adorable in your sun hat. Fun post. laurie

Awesome job on the condo! What a great retreat! Can't wait to see the master bedroom redo :)

Judy said...

Love that bright blue on you and don't you look like a movie star with your sunglasses (or as we say here in the south "shades")!

I also enjoyed seeing more of your lake house. David and I have been debating for a couple of years to buy a place on the lake but the costs are so outrageous now so I'm trying to convince him to put in a pool in our backyard if we don't buy at the lake. We are always welcomed at my sister's place but I'd love one of my own.

Later gator!

I answered my own question, yes, your grandkids enjoy your lake place too! I am your newest follower, way out here in California.
