I'm ready for fall

Before I take out my fall stuff; yes I do have a pumpkin or two even though we don't get a single trick or treat-er at the house I thought I'd show you some of my favorite summer pictures.  And I tried a new way of presenting my pictures; you like?

I just took a quick lesson on how to do collages from Megan over at her blog best of fates she is a self professed collage freak so she gave lessons on her blog. I'm just a beginner so here's my first effort. What can I say I had collage envy!

My brother and sister in law come visit me and Bill every summer on the anniversary of the kids accident and we usually go to the beach. However because of my leg wound the beach was out of the question; swimming was out of the question so I ended up being the camera man and observer to all.

My friend and neighbor Becky was going on vacation and asked me if I'd like to come by and check on her house and we were welcome to use her pool for the ten days she and her husband would be gone on vacation! Now how could I not take her up on that offer.


My sister in law Denise, my niece Alex and my son Matt with my nephew Gerard on his shoulders enjoying a day at the pool.                

1) My grandson Xavier. Why is it that all the boys get the great hair, isn't he the cutest?

2) My son Matthew, and his cousins Syd, Gerard and Alex

3)My grandsons, Xavier, Emmanuel and Adam and their cousins Sydney and Gerard

4)My brother Gerard and his Godson Matthew and his three kids.

1) top-Our family brunch at an Irish Pub with my Mom,son and daughter,son in law and grandchildren.

2) bottom- Italian night at my brother's house with the family and friends.

From my seat under the umbrella with my camera I watched my family enjoy the pool; it was a welcome relief from the hot summer days. Now onward I go to cooler weather, piles of leaves and fall allergies; I can't wait!
How about you?
