Jon was out of the country this week so we retreated northward to spend some time with my parents.  The sting of missing daddy was definitely lessened by all the fun we had at the pool, with cousins, at VBS, playing in the park...

Owen:  conquering the rock wall with some help from Pop-pop
Everly: one of my favorite memories.  Finding her in the garden proclaiming how beautiful each flower was.

Owen:  maybe not grumpy...but serious about the sand playground.
Everly:  new-to-us splash park on a hot, hot mid-July day

surf and turf edition

Owen: sun warmed and sleepy after a long morning swimming
Everly:  water like glass.  we had to drag her out of the bay - she found her natural habitat.

Owen: baseball game excitement
Everly: was cracking us up the entire game with her songs, imitations, pop-corn eating, and general sillyness.

Owen:  fishing...a good afternoon.
Everly: 'girls' and chalk on the sidewalk in her pj pants...a good morning.


Owen: Watching them pave the walkway - he would have stayed all day
Everly: Two curly heads - she love to cuddle her daddy and there is nothing like a summer-warmed toddler hug
