As the summer starts to come to an end and August completes its last days, we've been enjoying the break in the roasting temperatures. Really there is nothing better to start off a late-Summer's day with 75 degrees and then watch the sun set as an 80 degree breeze blows past. That's how our Saturday was yesterday. I love all seasons of the year, each for different reasons, and I like how here in Texas we get more of a "seasonal" range as opposed to the always "perfect" California. True certain areas of the Country rival any other place when it comes to Autumn or Spring, but here in Texas we do get a little taste of everything. It will be nice in these next couple of months to feel the brisker air come our way (one of my most favorite things in the world).
Last night, to complete an almost perfect summer day, we took a family walk down by the river not far from our house. Colton was thrilled to ride his bike free on the open path, and test his limits (sometimes he rode just a little too far out of sight--he's our adventurer). Both boys enjoyed exploring and finding "treasures" (acorns, sticks, whippoorwills). It's nice that Sean enjoys being outdoors and appreciates nature like I do. The outing was his idea and I'm glad we were able to do something so simple, yet so therapeutic.
