Summertime adventures, anyone?
Can you believe it's mid-July already? I don't know where this spring went, and here we are, heading into shorter days already.
Here is the lemon bundt cake I made for the party celebrating our daughter Emily's college graduation in May--she got her MS in Special Ed. Her husband graduated too, so we had lots to celebrate!
Then a few days later, she and I headed to the Gulf so she could start looking at property and get a feel for the area, before we headed over to New Orleans for the Romantic Times convention.
Oh, my. What a wonderful time we had, enjoying the restaurants in the Garden District and French Quarter, and just soaking up the atmosphere down there. I love New Orleans!
This year, the guide seemed overly friendly with the swamp creatures. I was relieved when he didn't get hauled into the water... and glad that I was on the nice, safe boat. :)
This little feller was released after we had a chance to meet him. I suspect he won't be nearly as friendly in another year or so.
I hope you've been having a wonderful summer, filled with sunny days, time with family, and plenty of good books to read.
I would love to hear about some of your memorable summertime experiences!
Blessings, Roxanne Rustand
