Leaves before they fell on the lawn



Pretty dogwood trees, but damn there were/are a lot of leaves out here. 30 leaf bags so far, more tomorrow.

Packing. Fail.




Well, they actually did help me empty out a linen drawer into the box, but only after crawling around in the box for quite a while.

First S'mores

For both Zach and Ryan. They even got to hold their own marshmallow sticks and didn't catch fire (them or their marshmallows, that is).

The Basin

Very strange rocks. This place is about a 5 minute walk from i-93 in Franconia Notch. Yet Josh and I managed to become separated from each other for about an hour due to poor senses of direction and no working cell phones. Good thing we didn't have anywhere to be in a hurry.

I also have pictures I took here with a film camera several years ago. Now that I'm looking at them, they seem to be identical to my new ones. Hm.

Yes, the kids are using flashlights as microphones. Heavens knows why they even know what microphones are.

Featuring Sharona's giant lens once again, a few big clouds, and some strangers in a dinghy.

Fort, flashlight, camera

Took the Boston harbor speed ferry out to George's Island this past weekend, where a fort was erected from which to blow up ships during the civil war. The interior is surprisingly dark. Gory history aside, it's a spiffy place to take kids, flashlights (thanks, Alyssa) and cameras.

Check out Sharona's lens (way bigger than mine):

Sarah not posing


My nieces (and their mom) paid us a visit last week. Sarah, who's 4, is usually set on goofy poses when she spies a camera, a la the 2nd ridiculous picture. So this was a surprise, and maybe just a bit extra serious.

Like crack for a first-time 2-year-old.

Facial expression credit goes to Terry. I have no idea what he was doing, but Zach found it amusing.

First Mojito


Ok, yes, it's a virgin mojito.

Being on vacation (off work for a week, anyhow), I thought it my prerogative to mix myself a mojito with lunch, seeing as we had all the ingredients on hand. Zach insisted that I let him have some.

"No, it's for grownups."


"It has alcohol in it, it'll make you fall over."


I had no better answer so to get him to quiet I offered him a lick from my finger. Instead of disgust, he proclaimed, "I like alcohol!" Then, after some consideration while I went off to squeeze another lime, "but I don't want to fall over."

More 4th - Parade


Sarah, from behind (above) and Zach with his cousins, Sydney and Sarah (below) after the Annapolis Independence Day parade.


Of course, this is how Zach watched most of the parade, except during a couple of the marching bands, when he dropped his hands to listen:


This was followed by staying up late to watch fireworks with massive sound-blocking headphones, insisting that Uncle Tim held him through the entire show while he looked the other way. But now, it's all he talks about, e.g. "Hi Ryan. I saw fireworks!"
