#Celebratelu Things That Make Me Smile This Summer

Holy Cow. I let summer fun get in the way of writing for a while. But I'm not going to apologize for that. We've been busy having fun!

Chloe was not letting us leave without her

We took a little road trip to Bayfield, Wisconsin in mid-June and it was wonderful. What a beautiful area on Lake Superior. We stayed at a great little mom and pop motel right on the lake. It's probably the cleanest, friendliest place we've ever stayed. I would go back in heartbeat.

One of our favorite places on this trip was Tom's Burned Down Cafe. Talk about making the best of a bad situation. This guy buys a restaurant and gets ready to open. The place burns down the night before with the insurance check on his desk. He puts a tarp up and opens anyway. Never did rebuild, just keeps it like this.  Chloe was more than welcome and they even had water for dogs!

We also went to a Jackson Brown concert with our youngest son (a huge fan). Such an amazing night. The stories and the songs are still going through my head.

4th of July week was BUSY. Lots and lots of activities going on. There were visits with grandkids (and their parents), boat rides with friends, fireworks forever, another concert... Finally, everyone went home and Chloe and I had a quiet (hot) week at the lake. A little golf, a lot of watching sunsets and we finish the week last night with a birthday party.

So there you have it. A little summer celebration sharing. I hope yours is going as well as mine is and you forget to stop and share your celebrations too!
