Farewell to Summer

I got to see alot of this, this summer. My husband Baldyman bought this little boat from one of our neighbors and the grandkids used it in their pond. The dog (Phoney) lives in that pond literally from Spring until the water is to cold to go in. He is in it so much, he's not allowed in the house until Frost. They have a sofa and place for him to sleep in the garage where he comes and goes. He chases the fish all day long and never tires of it.

I asked the girls yesterday if they've been swimming and they said they tried to on Friday but the water was already to cold for them. September here in Wisconsin, came in with a roar,,the temp change was immediate. Its time to put away the rafts, swimming toys and get ready for the ice skates!

6 Thanks for your comments!:

That is the cutest picture! I can't believe that the water is already too cold to swim in. That doesn't happen here for another 2 months, even then it's not bad. I hope it doesn't get too cold too fast :)

Hi Dawn! What a great picture! Looks like something out of a magazine, even the dog!!
The water is too frigid to swim in here also. Hubby was just saying he should be getting the boat ready for colder weather...blah.
LOVE all of your fun Halloween decor! The kids must love visiting your house!!

I love that picture, Dawn. Is that a lab?
My son has 2 labs that he can't keep out of the pool all summer long.
It's about 80 here today, but the nights and mornings are cold. I think Sept. is the best month!!
