At the lake & on the deck : Summer edition

Saturday morning, we headed over to my in-laws' after breakfast and walked in to see that my SIL had made French press coffee. We sat on the porch, Cooper got bacon grease on his onesie, and he roamed and tried (successfully, at times) to eat potted flowers. We admired my MIL's sunflowers, growing ever taller, enjoyed the cool morning breeze, and just chatted.

It was our first long car ride with Cooper, which had its ups and downs, so to speak, but I'm so glad we were able to visit. Arriving Friday evening, we got Cooper ready for bed right away, and then sat down to eat one of my favorite soups that my mom makes, potato corn chowder.
