As I've mentioned many times before, I just love Summer! I try to stretch it out as long as possible. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that we get to experience all of the seasons and I wouldn't change that, but if John and I were on "The Newlywed Game" and he was asked what my favorite season is....the answer would be Summer! I found this snip-it in a magazine, cut it out and have it hanging on my fridge:
"Our calendars edge closer to Autumn, but who will blame us for holding on to Summer just a little while longer? Birdsong mornings, firefly evenings and cicada nights were never intended to be rushed through."
So, our finale to Summer was a long weekend at St. Simons Island with Grandma and Grandpa! With questionable weather and a busy week, we didn't make our final decision on going until 8:00 a.m. Wed. morning. Do you know when we left? 8:00 p.m. Wed. night! Yes, I packed a family of four for a four day vacation in less than twelve hours. (And didn't forget a thing---thank you!)

We had a wonderful time and I can definitely say it was a perfect way to move into Fall!

We came across this sign outside of a store. It was very enticing, but I decided to walk on past....
