So summer came and went with alacrity this year...streaming by in a myriad of images from here in Madison to up north at the cabin. Back and forth. This year we went with a 3-4 week on and off plan. The idea being not to have to pack and unpack so often which for two old folks is arduous.
Weather in Madison was on the average this summer was dry and quite hot. Weather in Lac du Flambeau was on average cold, dark, and rainy. So both had their ups and downs.
So to simply highlight our happiest days...my sister's visit in May as she was making her way across country was splendid and so wonderful. Then in June the visit of our granddaughter, Maddy,and her entire family was amazing. Getting to meet Maddy's fiancé AND our two beautiful great grandchildren. What a special time.
Beth made the trip all the way from Rochester Hills, Michigan by car this summer to the cabin for a sister duo with Julie! Greg's son Mark and his big family came and my son Rick and his darling family came. Katy and Chris came as a sister duo and we loved that! Julie and her husband came. What a treat. They all spoiled us so!
We returned to Madison on Friday the 8th of September. The summer warmth will linger awhile in Madison..as autumn generally comes on slowly and with sweet colors. Then suddenly as October approaches it will rain and the colors will slide away from us offering us the always bleakness but coziness of November. We are already beginning to think of the holidays in general terms. With a large family one has to plan ahead!
