Jane-
Aren't vacations the best? I so understand about forgetting to take photos! I got 3/4 through our vacation last week and remembered I hadn't taken a single pic!!! The horror! It looks like you all had a great time and made some wonderful memories with friends and family!

What a wonderful time you must have had. Your post reminded me of childhood summers at my grandparents' cottage - those summers that seemed to go on forever!

Paula said...

What a great time you had. Enjoy the last weekend of your vacation.

Karen said...

Such a great thing, a summer cottage... look at all the great memories you create there! Thanks for sharing... and oh, that food looks good too!

Knitty said...

Your pictures show half of what is wonderful about a summer place. The other half is the quiet beauty when it is just you and hubby. That is how I feel anyway. I love having company at our place, but the quiet times are a different kind of wonderful.

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Looks like a wonderful time spent with family & friends, those times are the best memory makers too! Have a wonderful weekend!

Marla and Steve said...
