Where has this month gone?

Is it just me, or has July really flown by at warp speed? I feel my precious sunny days just slipping away from me. I love summertime.
I spent the weekend with one of my best friends, Jamie, and our husbands. We went to Grand Haven on Saturday. The hubbies went out fishing on the boat, while we shopped around downtown. It was a gorgeous day-the perfect weather for the beginning of the annual Coast Guard Festival. And as luck would have it, the local quilt guild was running a quilt show that weekend, so I got to seek out some inspiration for future projects. And as with any good trip to Grand Haven, we went to dinner at Fricano's where they serve delicious pizza, and only pizza. And when it got dark we watched the famous Musical Fountain, which is a water and light show synchronized to music.
Sunday we went to Jamie's family cottage with the kids. It was a beautiful summer day for boating on Rainbow Lake. The kids had a great time being towed around the lake on innertubes. I chose to pass on my chance to tube- far too much of me to be jiggling behind a boat for my own comfort. And I wanted to be able to get out of bed the next day. I wish I had brought my camera along so I could share some pictures with you.
I am going to spend today catching up on my July blocks for my block of the month quilts I am working on, since the month is over in a few hours. And I think I will enjoy a nice float in the pool too. It is another gorgeous day!
