The lake is always fun. Our family likes to spend time out on the boat, fishing and paddling around in the very very cold water.My nephew Josh, Mason Dave having a "man dip" here in the lake. Dave said it was bonding time.
While we were at the ranch, a wagon train came through on the old dirt road that goes from Afton into Montpelier, Idaho commemorating how trade used to travel through those towns. The Stewart ranch is right off that road. The wagon train took kids and adults on rides.
We went into Afton a few days for supplies and lunch. We had fun going down main street with Allison. Shadow is in his bag next to Allison and Shelbie. Shadow is easy to take around and is so good in his bag. No one knows when we go into stores that we have a dog.
More main street and Allison. She wasn't sure what that big guy was doing.
We always do a craft or sewing project. We made Christmas Trees from this pattern. You can just see them sitting next to my sister Polly and her sewing machine. That was really fun. We also had a carnival for the grandchildren but I don't have photos of that (darn!).
If you remember I made myself a family history quilt from flags of my heritage. I made mini quilts for my sisters with the same flags. This is my sister Polly standing next to hers after she hung it at her house.
So back to life now. And into fall. Tomorrow is September already. I only have Mason at home and in school now. It is kind of weird but life marches on.
