Summer Magic

Summer has left us once again but has given us many happy memories to cherish.

My BEST surprise when my daughter Jean came to visit in June.

Canada Day with our grandchildren.

Car shows with my family

Visitors from Germany, it was wonderful seeing my cousin Ingo and his family.

Maple Syrup Museum

Dancing in the park every month and crashing weddings! Actually, it was the Bride and Groom who came out of the pavilion to join us when they saw us dancing, which happened on two occasions. What a delight to celebrate their special day with them!

These guests wore matching Pac-Man outfits, so cute!

My granddaughter is a dancer too.

My grandson’s first drive in my car (in an empty parking lot).

My youngest son’s (yellow shirt) Company Picnic in Victoria Park.

Dinner in the woods at a trailer park with friends.

We enjoyed going to Lake Huron and Lake Erie several times this summer and taking our grandchildren swimming at Kiwanis Park.

Fun times at our neighbour’s pool.

Enjoying Barn Dances at Marilyn’s with a different theme every month.

Flower Power ’60s – Maggie and me

Hawaiian Party

And there’s always time for our grandchildren!

Summertime is magical!

  1. I think Carmen, you would love my new fashion design and figure drawing class. I believe you live too far, though, but that is just like created for people like you who love beauty, fashion, good looks and art.

      Thank you so much Maggie! I enjoyed reflecting on these moments that are now memories! You made me smile with your fun comment, haha! I think the more clothes we have sometimes makes it more difficult deciding what to wear! You have a fantastic wardrobe and always look so fashionable, you inspire me! 🙂

      Lots of action, that’s for sure and I didn’t include everything! It’s hard to condense three months of activities in one post. lol Thank you for stopping by! 🙂

    What a wonderful report to know a little more your way of life and the things and people that make you happy. How big are your grandchildren, and how happy are you by your side. What fun must be a Hawaiian party in Ontario !! How happy you are with your family and your friends, you are a lucky woman to have so many people who love you. And what can I say about your looks that you have not already said? You are the most beautiful and elegant woman, without a doubt. I love your flowered dresses, they are so delicate and elegant. And the capris of the Queen of Capri! And everything that is dressed for you, because above you everything looks beautiful. I love your photo sitting on the rock and the sea in the background, it shows all your beauty, your style, your elegance, your delicacy, you!

      Thank you kindly dear Josep-Maria! 🙂 Your comments have always encouraged me so much! I have not included all the activities of this summer, for that would be a longer list with many more photos – lol – In addition, you know I teach dance, so it was a very active summer! When I go to sleep at night, sometimes very late, I close my eyes and I am immediately in dreamland. 🙂

      Wishing you lovely days in the mountains and fun with family and friends!
