Loving Summer

Another one of my anthology blogs:

Blue Hill hike with Melissa and Jim. Mile: 0.01.

The summer birds are fabulous. Our favorite call is from the Hermit Thrush (this one is a Cardinal).

Fairy House

Visiting with Hazel Walsh Daloz…

…and the rest of her crew.

Liam turned 6 in June (a fabulous age). Pictured here: the night before his b-day, watching Star Wars and eating “junker” food.

“Junker” food the next morning. Birthdays are great!

LK’s b-day with his buddies. The requested menu included watermelon, hot dogs, cherry pie, and vegetarian sushi.

4th of July parade with Grandma Marie

LK got caterpillars for his b-day, which we watched turn into Painted Lady Butterflies–here they are just before their release.

River swimming–my favorite part of summer.


…sometimes with a net.

Hummingbird outside my office window.

A recent favorite book. The inspiration for the following photos.

Making roti dough.

Rolling it out.


And making Batman masks out of it.

Reid recently took to swimming–so fun to watch.

Water blasting.

The intrepid explorers of Long Pond. I am off swimming across the pond with the loons!
