A Farewell to Summer

I feel like the last few weeks I haven't been able to post much. Our computer wasn't working, then it was, then the Internet wasn't, then it was, then it wasn't again... You know how it goes. I have been assured by my dear husband the problem has been officially fixed. Yeah!!!
We have had some amazing times this summer with family. Two trips to Tennessee, swimming in Nana and Papa's pool, playing in the sprinkler. I started back to work a little over a month ago, but we were able to squeeze some last bits of fun into the summer. We went to the park with some friends, had little girls over for a fairy party, Josie turned THREE (I still can't get over that) and we were able to make a quick day trip to Blue Gable on Labor Day.
Now Emma is in school, and the weather is getting cooler. At tree on our street is starting to turn red, and is dropping some leaves!
So as we say our farewell to the summer, we welcome autumn with open arms, and await all the joy this season brings, of jumping in leaves, apple picking, cozy sweaters, and family together. I love the fall! Autumn is such a blessed time. Now, where is that apple butter recipe...
Daddy and Emma on an elephant?

I love this picture. Boy can that girl get her Daddy to laugh!

Look at all those fairies in our backyard!

Splashing around at Blue Gable.

I love this little cottage! I still remember swinging on the porch swing reading a letter from my friend Katie when she found out she was having a boy, and I was pregnant with Emma! Lots of fun memories here. :)

It sounds like you guys had a wonderful summer. I love the pictures that you have posted lately. I wondered if you got a new camera? Some of them look very professional! The one of Emma and Josh on the elephant is really cute.
