Moments of the Month | August 2012

It’s the first official day of fall.

So, why does summer feel like sooooo long ago?

We said so long to the salt water for a few days for some fresh water fun  …. rafting and camping!

So much to see and do in Coney Island …

All of Mimi and Pop’s grandchildren …

The two big boys caught the cooking bug this summer.  Of course, there are always mishaps.

The summer finale … Mardi Gras.  This year our walk’s theme was “books” and we decided to become one of our all time favorite bedtime stories, “The Three Billy Goats’ Gruff”.  What a great time …

And of course, here are my instagram faves from August.  So many great moments.

That there (above) is the house I grew up in in Brooklyn.  The kids and I went back to school shopping one rainy day and decided to do a drive-by afterwards since it had cleared up.  I wish I had been able to go inside … I wonder how reality matches my memory.

Paul wore that coonskin cap (above) for  a good portion of the rest of the summer.  Kate wowed us in the 40th annual Breezy Point Teen Show (below), …. but Paul found it to be a bit too long. 🙂

There are so many stories behind these photos.  I hope these posts will help me to remember them all.
