Geez, Red Sox shirts. Something new and different in my house.
And here is smilin' Little Chief as the bus passed...
Miss A. was all smiles....until the bus rolled up to the driveway. Then Big Chief had to step in and help her to her seat.
I have a feeling we're headed for many more baseball games over the years. The season lasted through mid-July which is why we waited to take our family vacation to Cape Cod until the very end of July.
We rented a house in Chatham for a week and had a glorious weather week. Every day was beach-worthy and the kids had a blast at both Nauset Beach and at Oyster Pond. Here's the chica enjoying the warm water at Oyster Pond..
and running from the cold Nauset waves....
Luke was all about digging, catching critters, getting buried in the sand and riding in the waves....
And here is that cool Tagu lizard that I reference above. It was wriggling around quite a bit wanting to get down...making me a tad nervous.The show continued on. Jeremy introduced his corn snakes, milk snakes, ball pythons....and then.... we got to see what was in the bag and in the big blue tub...
And here are a few other candids...the birthday boy in his glory...Ben all wrapped up..
I couldn't believe they were going to do it, but this is what Michael Phelps has inspired....There go Ben and Little Chief...And talk about photofinishes....
Thank you again, Michael Phelps!!!
Luke shared his ride with Mr. T who was behind the boat for the first time. Do you think they were having fun?
I was trying hard to get a picture with some photographic content (is that a real phrase?). There is a cool red boathouse that I have been admiring for years. I took the following picture trying for the focus on the reeds/weeds with the boathouse in the background. What do you think?
This is a SOOC (Straight Out of Camera) shot, cropped a little.
And here is a cool B&W of the chica
This girl is so much fun. She just lights up my life.
I so admire all of these photographer mom/bloggers and wonder how they blog so often and post such amazing pictures. I guess you get good at it after a while. I've got a ways to go, but I hope to get there some day.
