Door County Summer Color Day Three

Aug 16, 2012 | Door County | 10 comments

 Our rental apartment… just steps from the beach.
 The babes and I spent a good hour building our very own Mont Saint Michel.  Stone foundation, lots of seaweed chinking and tons of fun.
 I don’t know who had more fun… me… or them.
 So many sandbars, so little time.  JuJu sure had fun at the beach!
 Not EVERY baby is named after our favorite Door County restaurant!
Julien James is!
 The kids had pirate fever!
 Hoolie is such a TRIP!
 Oh yeah, that’s our boat.  See it?
Right there.
No, right there.
The big one.
 They SURE know how to do flowers!  I never get tired of their curb appeal!
 The most fun you can have being racked over the coals – the Fish Creek Market.
 On this night we left Daddy home with the babies and we “did the town”.  One of my most wonderful times I have ever had with Aidan and Amélie.
 Look at her.
 Watching the big boats come in.
 Oh THERE’s our boat!
Best of friends – ready to turn in after another wonderful day of vacation.


  1. A NEW DAY

    Came across your blog via pinterest, and can I just tell you how these pictures of your beautiful children are stirring up some sentimental nostalgia as I prepare to send my baby boy off to college in less than a week??? Whaaaaaaaaaaa! I used to say, “yeah,yeah,yeah” when people would tell me how quickly it goes by, because when you’re embroiled in the trenches raising the munchkins, time seems to slow down a bit…and you want to”freeze” them at various stages…and then before you know it, you’re a 40 something mama with empty nest syndrome!!! Glad you’re relishing the times with your little ones and sharing your blog with us. And I will not take my little coastal so cal homestead for granted as I feel I have the past few years. I’d been cooking up some plans to revamp the gardens and planting beds, add more trees to the orchard, and start a new flock of chickens (we lost our last batch to a pack of ravenous coyotes — I still cry over it…)and my pinning (and pining) follies led me here, to even more inspiration.

    God Bless! I look forward to more!

    The coast is just magical…I don’t know where you were but I live in Oregon and we went camping on the beach last weekend. It was perfect (I have the peeling sunburn to prove it!)
