Weekend Moment: Summer 2011

This summer has been a wonderful one.  It has been a time of laughter, lots of time with family and friends, and answered prayer.

It began with a fond farewell to the homeschooling co-op we have been attending for the last four years…

Julia and one of her best friends

Our son Josh marched with the high school band in the town’s Memorial Day parade…

Our daughter spent her summer attending volleyball camp, in hopes of making the team in August (she did)…

We attended two fireworks celebrations for the Fourth of July…

There was time with friends and family…

We got to go back to my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA for a week…

Heinz Field where the Steelers play!

The view from the top of the incline

Only in Pittsburgh!

Inclines meeting

Forbes Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh

PPG Place

Market Square

And of course, as everyone knows, when you go back to your hometown you simply must visit your  favorite restaurants. So…there was ALL THE EATING…

Bethel Bakery cupcakes...none better!!!

Strawberry pie at Eat-n-Park

Aiello's Pizza in Squirrel Hill

Cold Stone Creamery

Our favorite spot on Mt. Washington

We went there five times in 7 days!

It is no wonder that I literally gained five pounds during this trip! 🙂

There were the end-of-summer celebrations known as Old Home Days in New England…

Vermont became our second home when my husband accepted a consulting assignment there…

Above all, there was a lot of laughter and love…

I am a blessed woman.

“...Summer gathers up her robes of glory,
and, like a dream, glides away…”
