Where as the summer gone!!!!

Katherine flips over the Cottage Inn. She is one of our yoga instructors form Grand Rapids who visited us to attend the wedding of a friend on the island. She refreshed our memories of a prefect head stand technique. Thanks Katherine we miss our yoga class at Expressions of Grace in Grand Rapids.

Joe's mom dresses him up for the 4th of July. Thanks to Auntie Keary for the head dress.

Joe takes a fancy to one of the other dogs in the show. He really likes blondes.

Joe Cocker and Marge participated in the Dog and Pony show. Joe was the only dog who preformed for the judges but the dogs with costumes won prizes.

Summer sun rise taken by Rich as he walks the dog in the morning. I am still waking up at this time of day!

This is Father Marquette in the fog! I guess that's how I feel about where the summer went. The weather this summer has been fantastic and the forecast is looking great for the coming weeks.
