Finally Here

It was a beautiful weekend in the northwoods. The kind of weekend we haven't had for a while. 
The hot weather has finally arrived. After experiencing colder than normal weather this past month I was afraid that this summer was going to be cool and rainy like last summer but it looks like we are getting the heat after all. And that is just how we like it. This is our weekend in pictures.
 Fishing and swimming
Out in the paddle boat for more fishing

 Joey and I had some followers.
 Relaxing on the porch in the late afternoon.
 Molly loves it up north too.
 Boys shooting guns. They set up a field coarse with soda cans.
 Todd finally relaxing after getting lots of work done. 
 Early morning fishing.
My happy fishing family.

Yes, it was a lovely, hot, summery weekend. And, luckily, the hot weather continues all week. Today we are taking advantage of the heat and humidity and we are heading out to our favorite swimming hole. 

This is the kind of summer we hoped for.

I LOVED paddle boats as a kid. It's been years since I've been on one.

Glad it has warmed up for you. And, yes, that looks like a real lake to me. Just like I remember.

Wow, looks so beautiful up there. Reminds me of when we go to Canada.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
