Cottage Life

Welcome to Shady Shores! What a great place...a place where we hope to return to next year :>

Here's our cute little cottage on the beach where we spent a lovely Labor Day weekend. All of us had such a great time.

R and T had fun playing shuffle board. They don't know how to play, but had a good time making up their own rules. As usual, wrestling was involved (I know, I know...but they are boys.)

T loved playing in the sand. If it were up to him, he would have stayed in the sand all day. As a matter of fact, his favorite way of warming up after getting cold in the water was to lay down in the prone position in the sand. He looked like a sand monster, but he was warm.

What a beautiful place that Shady Shores is! I especially love the picture of T - it's cropped beautifully . . . wrestling and shuffle board, hmmmm, how does that work?

So glad you had a nice long weekend to get ready for fall.

Yes, I'm curious too as to how shuffle board turns into wrestling. Are you able to tell us about that? I'd love to see a video.

The boys are so cute and getting so big. I still look at the picture I have of them playing in the sand at Anchor Bay. When they were little!

Oh, and Uncle Rick also likes lying down in the sand, fully prone, and feeling the warmth. Too messy for me.

How fun! What a great place for the boys (and you) to play. Based on this blog, it seems like you have spent as much, if not more, time on the water than you did when you were growing up on the West Coast! But then, you had that swimming pool that I was always jealous of...

It is a beautiful place!

CaGrammy and AJ - Shuffle board turned into sword fighting, which turned into wrestling.

Seattle S - You're right, we have spent a lot of time in and on the water, which is so weird to me because there is no ocean. About the pool, I would LOVE to have a pool again...what a lucky childhood!

Wow!! That looks soo pretty! What a fun time. Sounds like an annual place go for Labor Day to me!

I can't believe how big they are getting and looking. Tommy seems like he has really sprouted!

Sooooo much fun. MI has the best sand, it's white & very fine. I remember as a little boy M loved rolling in it too. Sometimes he'd eat some! "As they say"....The apple don't fall far from the tree.
