At The Boardwalk

It's the part of summer when Bibliofilly's niece is here to visit, which means many things to the three kids between us...namely mini-golf, ice cream, and the beach. This year, we all did mini-golf and ice cream but since we just got back from Germany, we weren't going to make the beach. Never one to shrink from challenge, Bibliofilly offered to take the kids - Robert's car would fit everyone and then her niece would have someone to play with. We compromised on sending Ross with them for the day. Lars spent the day with his friends at Summer Playgrounds and then played World of Warcraft as a treat when he got home. The beachgoers arrived back at our place in time for dinner, full of sun, sand, and stories shared over the meal (grilled pork with apricots & red onion - yum).

In other news, Chris solved my photo problem by setting up a 500GB RAID array. Now that my computer isn't choking on 40GB of picture data (not all from Germany), I can run my photo editor again, which means Germany pictures will come soon!

i've just been thinking about what it means to take advantage of summer, and how so many people just don't...

you and your family, however, you do. and it sounds lovely.

glad to hear Ross had a good time at the beach; I think we all did. And thanks again for the tremendous dinner!

Ross looks so relaxed and happy; he's growing up so fast! What a fun day for both boys. I love the photo strip. It's a classic.
