Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Summer Fun

How's your summer?  Ours has been lots of fun.
And very busy!

Our adorable little grand girls and their Mommy came to live with us this past spring.

And of course they brought their baby brother with them.
When there are kids in the house it means we get to play at our local water park, Cherry Hill.

And go on little trips to the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti, Utah. 

And camping at our beautiful state and national parks.

We've watched a fun baseball game played by the Salt Lake Bees, a farm team for the Anaheim Angels.

On the fourth of July cousins came to visit.
We watched the parade in our festive attire.

We had a bbq with the family and a watermelon eating contest with the cousins.
And of course what kind of  4th of July would it be without fireworks and mosquito bites.

We picked lots of strawberries from our garden.

And now we're waiting for pumpkins, watermelon, cantaloupe, green beans and a peanut to get ripe.

I can't believe it's the middle of August already!
Our little sweet peas will go back to school in a couple of weeks!
We still have time for some more summer fun.
Hope your summer has been a great one too.
