The Last Hoorah of Summer

Well, I did get new batteries for my camera, but when hubby and I set out this morning to get the boys, the camera got left behind. We picked them up around 10am and took them fishing. They each caught a fish and had several more bites. By noon, we had drowned a dozen worms...or the fish had stolen them from our hooks. We left the tranquil peacefulness of the pond and headed to Port Dover for lunch.

Port Dover is a fishing village on the shores of Lake Erie. I've posted about it before and if you're not familiar with it, you can read about it Here. They have a place where you can get the best hamburgers and footlongs. It's been there for about 90 years. It's a tradition to go to Port Dover and have lunch at the Arbor, so off we went.

After lunch, we crossed the street and played a game of mini golf. I love this mini golf course. I took pictures of it and posted them HERE . I was leading on the front half of the course but sure went downhill on the back half. Hubby came in first this time, then Brandon, Jordan and me. The boys are always ecstatic when they beat me. They were a bit worried until we reached the 9th hole and it was all downhill for me from there.

After mini golf, we got an ice cream and headed home. They boys played with Dakota and had some fun with him and then it was off home for supper and to get their backpacks and school supplies ready for tomorrow.

Yes, it's back to school. It's hard to believe that Jordan is going into grade 7 and Brandon is attending his first year at high school. Where has the time gone?

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.


  1. Another fun day! Hope school goes well for the boys tomorrow!

  2. Sounds like a fun day-even if you did forget the camera : )

    Sounds like a fun day. I love drowning worms and the excitement of loosing them to fish thieves. Thanks for sharing your memories in the previous post. Peace

  6. Hello Mary,
    As I type this, we are having a severe thunder storm. Weather man says we could get as much as 2 inches in first 30 minutes. We certainly need it. I can't remember the last time I heard thunder. The day has darkened. Smokey is covered up under his blanket. I have finished the book I'm reading. This morning, I did a little work in the guest room and got out some Fall things. I've laundered all of our throws and afghans. With a Cat, this has to be done often. I also laundered some red mud covered clothes from Honey Bear's work on the pond. I ran to the store at lunch time because Publix had Pepsi products on sale: 3 12pks for $12 plus 3 free. Today was the last day so I had to go.
    Sounds like you all had a fun Labour Day.
    Mama Bear

  7. What do you mean you forgot the camera?????? What kind of blogger are you???? hehe I left the house without my camera the other day and felt naked! lol Sounds like another wonderful day with the boys and certainly a great way to end their summer vacation.

    Since you enjoy mini golf, we'll have to bring you to the one Steve & I went to last time we were in NF, we had so much fun:-)

    I do hope the boys had a great first day of school! I remember well those first day jitters...or maybe it was excitement! lol xoxo

    Though Romney had forgotten about the unwelcome haircut,
    he apologized anyway after the muckraking Washington Post, figurative sharpened hatchet
    in hand, rooted out the story by contacting an
    old Mitt buddy almost half a century later. There are so many things women in our lives take
    cognizance of that we are not aware of.
