Last day of summer

I know summer is not really over for a few more weeks, but today is Labor Day, so it's the end of the season. We took the girls to the public pool near our house this afternoon, and it will be the last time until Spring. This is the last day it's open. Today the girls kind of seemed more interested in playing around the pool, rather than actually being in the water. Of course, they don't know how much they're going to miss it for the next 9 months.

Chris and I can't believe that our 2nd summer as parents is ending. Last summer was such a blur of feeding, diapering, crying (mine and the babies), no sleep. It really never felt much like summer at all. This summer was great, though. We hung out at the lake, and at the pool. We played at the park practically every day. We got our very own house. :) The girls turned into outdoor kids, with scrapes on their knees and dirty feet. After the drastic changes between last summer and this one, it's hard to look ahead a year and imagine what next summer will bring. We'll start it with two 2 year olds. We can't wait. :)

No photos from the pool today, because I had the black and white camera with me. But here's one of Rowan from this morning. She's a very busy child.

I think we're all a little sad that summer is ending. I was thinking the same thing the other day, imagining how next summer will be with our kids. Try and enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather!
