My Cowboy and his Tortillas

I think that tortillas definitely taste better when made by a cowboy.  Especially a cowboy with dimples.

Happy Summer Solstice

The longest day of the year.  I remember Summer Solstices when I was a kid, staying up late, reading in bed well past my bedtime. It was a gorgeous evening here.  Big two running around in their underwear looking for ripe strawberries. I was nursing a fussy baby while weeding the carrots.  Sweet fussy baby calmed right down in her new to us (free!) swing. Then a James Herriot marathon book reading session.  Now I'm enjoying a summer snack of crackers, cream cheese, topped with fresh homemade jam.  Summer has officially begun. It's going to be a good one!

Wild Kingdom

Our annual trip to the zoo...with mama made tails. Somehow they always want me to be the elephant.  I accidentally 'forgot' my elephant tail in the car this year. Oops.  
 She's also sporting a mama made hat and mama made skirt. He says he's wearing mama made shorts because I cut them from pants to shorts.
 Seriously, can't get enough of these tails!  They just went about their fun, forgetting about their tails, whereas I was smiling at those tails all day.

 Someone slept through most of it.
 Woke up at the end.

A fun time, indeed!

Hot days...

It's funny how the seasons change and our rhythm follows.  During the winter, we are inside during the morning and evenings and head outside midday, to catch the warmest part of the day.

Now that we are almost officially into the months of summer and the weather is uncomfortably hot (for me anyway!), we tend to spend the bookends of our day outside, with the middle part of our day inside.  Thankful this old farmhouse stays pretty cool most of the summer.

 Inside midday unless, of course, we're at the beach.  This was Anna-Kate's first beach trip and I didn't bring my camera. Oops!  I coaxed my husband to walk back to car to take a couple of pics with his cell phone.   He gets the credit here.

Tiny sandy toes, I love them so! Thankful during these hot days that cooling off oceanside is only 6 miles from our home. Just another reason why I'm glad we have made our home-sweet-home in Maine.

Fields of Daisies

My favorite flower, my most favorite time of year. I've worked to get this field of daisies looking like this. Just looking at it makes me happy.  Taking pictures of my littles in it makes it even happier. (They have been wearing their matching goat shirts, thanks Grammy!)

Happy Father's Day 2017

Happy Birthday to the "Best Dad Ever"...which must be true, because the T shirt says.
 Adrian said "I love it best when you tuck me in at night."  Audra said "I love it when you kiss me and hug me and pick me up."  Since Anna-Kate didn't tell me her favorite part of having you as a dad, I just will have to show some highlights in pictures.

Happy Father's Day, Justin!

Nature Walks

Everytime I go to the Rachel Carson center for a nature walk, I tell myself I need to go more often. We all love it there, my neighbor too.  The highlight this time was watching the goose turn it's egg.  Must go more often!
