Heart shape puddle at the pool

Mason says hello in heart shapes, it all began at Lake Michigan; Ally found a heart shaped rock.  Then at the zoo; our first visit to the new tiger exhibit, a heart shaped potato chip.
Yesterday at the pool; Ally spotted a tiny heart in a puddle, I wish I had my camera.  My mouth dropped at the beautiful puddle, amazing to spot such a creation.
 When a tiny sunflower emerged from our drought afflicted lawn.  My first thought was where did Ally find an artificial flower?  But it was real.  Immediately I thought of Mason.  After closer observation I laughed at the sign next to it, "Sunflowers for Sale"  Mason, you are still sending laughter and sunshine.

 Lots of summer memories.  We visited some of Mason's favorite vacation spots. We each etched Mason's name in the sand at Lake Erie and we could hear his echo of laughter while tubing on Lake Conesus.  We also made new memories as we visited Indiana Sand Dunes for the first time climbing Mt. Baldy and sliding in the soft sand. At Cedarpoint, Maverick fulfilled a lifetime goal to ride the Maverick roller coaster; his cheers with my tears at 70 mph priceless.

 We look forward to the days ahead; as school approaches, I can still picture a little boy with a Superman backpack; how I wished he wasn't such in a hurry to get to school.... 9 more days, my little girl will do the same, she will march, with crayons in her hands and she won't look back.  I am elated and proud of her confidence.

We are so EXCITED at the upcoming Head for the Cure, August 26 at Corporate Woods, we'd love to have you join Team Make a Difference for Mason.  (Click on team photo on the right corner of the blog for the link) And it is already time to think of Christmas lights; as we start our Seasons of Wishes Make-a-Wish fundraiser in September.  Thanks for all your love and support.
Summer is still here and we hope every splash brings a smile and a heart shape puddle finds a way to your heart.
