August has been a busy month and it seems I have been unable to get my blogging act together. But I would like to share with you some bits and pieces from our last month of summer. The dozen roses and vase a gift from my hubby to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary on the 16th.
Addison and her Grandma celebrating Grandma's b-day on the 24th.
Yesterday we took Addison to an Art's and Music Festival along the beautiful Mississippi river. Pictured here with her cousin Chloe. These little girls have such fun together! Chloe is 3 and Addison will turn 2 next month.
And the highlight of their day were the free pony rides!
Hubby was such a trooper! He walked with them to make sure Addison stayed put. Around and around they went together and alone. And did I mention it was 90 degrees here yesterday but it felt cooler thanks to the river breezes.
Addison woke up this morning not quite awake and already she was saying" I want to ride the big one, I want to ride the big one". There was a really big horse there that most of the bigger kids were riding. And she was bound and determined to ride it and she did!. But my camera battery died out just when she got on.
Looking ahead and reflecting as well. Scenes from Autumn 11 at Applestone Cottage. Thanks for stopping by..I will be around to visit you all soon! Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
