the good ole summertime...

The days are long.

Early to bed and early to rise...
no longer applies!

And so the grands came with us for an evening visit to Harrison Lake...
just a short drive away.

The walk around the lagoon...
became a jog....
with lots of side-trips.

The lagoon was my favorite swimming spot back in the day.
Now it is home to a large gaggle of Canada geese.

They may be beautiful...
and entertaining...
but I'd rather not swim with them!

Ice-cream is the perfect way to end a summer's day.

 The geese followed us around the lagoon...
watched while we ate our cones...
and did a little begging.

we don't share ice-cream!

Dusk at Harrison Lake.
A good place to be....
in the good ole summertime!


  1. Looks like a perfect summers evening to me... Glad you enjoyed!

  2. Does Elmer always eat TWO ice cream cones? LOL

    So what flavor are the majority enjoying here?

    Great to see this gaggle of grands featured once again. They used to be the regulars and I've missed them!

    1. really notice everything. He's holding my cone...while I hold the camera. He wasn't at all interested in a mango ice-cream it was safe in his hands! The girls talked me into having mango...since it is their favorite.

  3. You have the most beautiful destinations close to your home. I think it's great that you take advantage of them by visiting them often. And by sharing them with us!

  4. Oh that is a perfect spot and so nice it is just a quick drive for ice cream for your fun grands! It all looks quite relaxing as they sit on the park bench.

  5. Looks like the 3 girls chose the same flavor of ice cream :)
    Looks like the perfect spot to mess around in with a great ice cream ending...

  6. Love it - early to bed and early to rise - no longer applies!!!! These are the good old days!!! What a great way to enjoy yours.

  7. Love that row of ice cream lickers. Such fun. Isn't summer wonderful?

  8. Your grandchildren have grown so tall this summer, Judy!

    I don't think I'd like to swim with the geese either, but they seemed to enjoy your visit.

    Mango ice cream sounds interesting --did you like it?

  9. The ice cream pic was my favorite too!!! Good times!

  10. That's one of my favourite spots, but I've never been there at dusk. In truth, only at lunch time! The twins are growing up so quickly and your grandson is stretching up too!

  11. I think our grands would have fun together. What a perfect summer date!

  12. Judy, that is a great bunch of icecream eaters! I joined my sister's family at the icecream/coffee shop there last month for her birthday. Two of her daughters, and a cousin work there. Dairymary

  13. Oh the memories of Harrison Lake. You are recreating memories for the grands which they will always treasure. "There are places....which draw us back again and again.
