“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”… I guess technically that should say its the most wonderful season of the year. Summer is by far my favourite season and as thankful as I am to live in a country that fully experiences all 4 seasons I anticipate summer all year and welcome it gladly when it finally arrives. Summer time means for me lots of time spent at our family cottage – time sitting on the dock, lots of water fun, swimming, yummy food, family time, making lots of memories. For as long as I can remember summer time has always been a special time for me from family vacations to working at camp in my teens now as an adult relaxing at the cottage. Although now since my sweet babies have joined my little family not a whole lot of relaxing happens but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. When I watch my babies playing at the cottage (not exclusive to just the cottage) my heart is so full of all the memories they are making in their already short life time. I can’t wait to (when they are older) show them pictures of the memories we are making this summer. Weekends always fly by especially when we are at the cottage and spending our day basking in the hot sun, splashing in the cool water, boating, eating and just having fun.
