Summer is definitely coming to an end up here in Chicago; there is that familiar nip in the air that signals fall is approaching, the sun is setting earlier, pants and sleeves are making more frequent appearances in the wardrobe, and the pumpkin spice latte is now being served at Starbucks. The other night during dinner al fresco, a flock of geese honked overhead as they started their migration south just as we were discussing how positively wonderful it has been to be home with my family, and how hard it will be to leave. Kind of appropriate I guess. One blog follower said it best, "Fly home (north) to hatch the goslings, then head south when they're strong enough to make the trip. Sounds about right...". That said, the weather was beautiful this weekend and we spent some quality time shoreside: a picnic on the beach with friends one day and a long, lazy sail on the next*. Time on the water, in our opinion, is always time well spent. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

* And yes, you might notice Isla wore the same outfit both days. Turns out I'm not the kind of mom that likes to doll her little girl up every day. Waste of effort in my opinion. If it's clean, it stays on.
