Good-bye, summer?

With my daughter in jeans + myself dressed in capris, I think we had our last boat ride of the summer. Just seems fitting with baseball commentators constantly talking about magic numbers + must-win games and football teams finally gracing us with their presence that we should temporarily say good-bye to summer. I love flip flops, slight sun burns, trips to the lake (and my new-found love of tubing ...), baseball and fresh fruit, but I also love needing a jacket as the sun sets, going to football games, watching the leaves change and putting on a sweater for the first time this season. Oh, and I really want to go to a pumpkin patch. I have roasting marshmallows + hot dogs on bonfire on my fall to-do list as well, but that shouldn't be a problem because my friends also are all about bonfires.

So, maybe this is good-bye summer, hello fall ... Maybe.

Before the boat ride Saturday evening, Cate discovered a duck call while the guys played pool. Lucas taught her how to make the sound I was very thankful we'd leave at Lake Barkley.

Then Lucas took most of us out on his boat while Katie stayed with Cate, Norah + Evalyn.

That's the Kentucky State Penitentiary behind us. Makes for a lovely picture-taking back drop, huh?!

Yes, my hair is wind blown ...

... but the scenery was totally worth it. Beautiful sunset.

There are more pictures here.

    I so wish we had access to lakes and boats. It looks so fun. :)
