We've been enjoying these last few weeks of summer break before school and fall routines begin again. Last week we spent a few hours of fishing in our little village park that's right on the Hudson River. It's such a peaceful place with the most wonderful views. In the warmer months you'll see kayakers, boats coming and going, groups of young kids hanging out and people just wanting to sit and relax for a bit. Only residents of Cornwall on Hudson are allowed so it keeps the crowds away and, to be honest, the older I get the less I like crowds. : )
|This girl is a natural born fisherperson!! You should see her cast!! Her daddy showed her only once and she was casting like a pro in no time. Her great grandfather (my grandfather who taught me how to fish) O'Brien was smiling down on her for sure!!|
|Brendan at the end of the pier.|
|My huge catch of the night. : ) I think we caught the same little fish three different times. Haha!!|

It was such a beautiful night. A little breezy for fishing with a bobber but perfect otherwise.
The train tracks that run alongside the park.
The sunset thru the weeping willows.
|All those little white dots are bugs!!|
|The fishing fashionista!!! Lol!!!|
We also had another big event last week . . .
This guy turned 21!!
He's had a tough couple of years after breaking his leg at work and moving away from all of his friends who used to be at our house every day. He's moving in the right direction now and goes to orientation for electrical school tomorrow. His dad and I tell him he doesn't have to know what he wants to do with the rest of his life but he needs to have a plan for now. I adore Trevor with all of my heart and just want him to be happy. He has so much to offer this world and has such a kind and loving heart. It's time for him to spread his wings and fly!!
|Me and my ginger baby!! : )|
I'm looking forward to blogging a little more often again once the kids are back in school!!
Happy Tuesday!! ~ Wendy xo
