End of Summer Party!

Hey everyone, I'm happy to be joining La's End of Summer Party! Summer 2011 was a fun one!
This summer we...
Ate well:

Enjoyed the garden:

Survived an earthquake and hurricane:

And played hard: I'd like to give a shout-out to the Phillies as they go into the play-offs!
Go Phils!
I have plans for this little blinged-up logo, I see it on the front of an apron very soon!

And as a parting gift... I'm not going to show you the pic of Earl at the Jersey Shore in his Speedo:@)
Have a happy day!
Also joining: Seasonal Sunday

  2. OMG, Floating Earl in the hurricane made me laugh out loud! I'm so glad I decided to visit blogs for a few minutes tonight. So funny.

    And I am glad you are safe!

  3. Yes indeed....it was quite a summer! Love all your pictures. Here in Houston we've survived the 110 degrees temperature and have only have two rain showers since May. Extremely rare for the Gulf Coast. Some crazy people have even suggested a Hurricane would break the drought. I Say...NO THANKS! I'll just water daily. :)

  7. You and Earl are crazy! That pic is just too funny! I can't believe it is almost over! Are you tired of hearing me whining about it yet?! Back to reality. School, homework, dances, chauffeuring, kids all over.... Let it all begin. I'm ready for you! Not really, you may find me whimpering in a corner rocking back and forth....

  9. The pie looks SO good. Not only did you have an earthquake and hurricane in the same summer, but in the same WEEK! That is a summer to remember.

    I'll bet Earl's pork chops look great in a speedo.

    Thanks for joinging in and for always being so supportive.

  35. What a summer! I love the zinnia bouquet! We need more zinnias. I wonder why florists don't use them?

    Happy final moments of summer.
