Fun day together!

Big day for these cousins! First day of riding lessons. Magnolia waited nearly her entire life for this day! I have never taken her to a lesson without her saying she didn't want to do it or cry for me. This was an exception. She walked in and never looked back.
Getting helmets on and choosing a horse.
Magnolia grooms her horse.
Magnolia was in heaven. She was smiling ear to ear. And chatting the entire time. She was so happy! It was so fun to see her find her passion.
Practicing balancing exercises.
What fun! I have a feeling this will be a lifetime passion of Magnolia's.
Families poured out of their houses onto the streets as we made our way to school.
Magnolia finds that a classmate from last year is a classmate again this year!
This little guy showed no nerves at all. He is full of surprises.
He's so happy to have his buddy in the same class with him.
Such a big school for such a little guy.
Here's to a great year!
Oh, dear. What can I say about this?
Waiting for our mini donuts...
First year for the mini ferris wheel!
We made it to one, maybe two, outdoor concerts in our village.
We had a lot of outings whenever we got George not working and really made those fun family days. We went to the beach for lunch.
We watched a few movies outdoors on our upstairs deck which was super cool. (We watched our friends dog, Maple, for a week.)
Like father, like son.
We went to tour an old lighthouse not far from our house. We drive by it all the time. On the day we decided to go in, it was National Lighthouse Day!
One day I met my friends on this fabulous beach just down the road from us.
My parent's pool wasn't in working order until the end of the summer which worked out perfectly because it was blazing hot the last two weeks. We came almost every day all day. It was a lot of good Nana, Papa, and cousin time.
Nana brought out a huge bag of Polly Pockets. The kids would swim, get out and play, swim, get out and play, swim...all day long.
We had cousins over for a sleepover. We walked to town for ice cream.
So long summer! We had a blast!
