Certainly the most important thing that happened was that summer started. That means late nights, campouts on the crouton, and the swimming pool.
Clearly, Henry is the only one who is still going to bed on time.
We have a list of projects a mile long for the summer. Dave has braved the jungle of the front yard and stirred up all sorts of wildlife...
We have also spent time with deer in the backyard. And they ate Anna Jane's cherry tomatoes and sunflowers in the frontyard. Dave's parents have had coyotes and a copperhead, and my sister Emily came home to a scorpion yesterday, so I guess we're lucky.
We went to Charlie Middlebrooks' graduation party. I forgot my camera. Gil, send pics. Charlie is an Eagle Scout and smart kid, but he's going to the wrong Carolina.
We had a great Father's Day that lasted for three whole days! We had barbecue on Saturday with Dave's dad and fam. On Sunday we went to Hanging Rock for our annual Father's Day Picnic. We go to different places each year, and we are always looking for new spots. If you have a great picnic place, let us know...we don't mind a drive.
Here is our annual
We chose another mountain to climb to celebrate my dad's day. We drove to Shatley Springs for lunch and a visit to the lake.
In the past few weeks, we have learned how much Henry loves water. He prefers to walk right in, seemingly not aware of the possibility of drowning.
He took Papa straight to the lake.
Can you see these cheekbones? They're grinning. Can you see these pants? They're falling down.
Nana saves the day...if Mommy hadn't had the camera stuck to her face, she could have rescued Henry after he ran into the lake.
Next year we will need a bigger bench to hold Punkin Duncan!
Oh yeah. The Monday after Father's Day was our 7 year anniversary. My parents kept the kids while Dave and I had our once-a-year dinner out. When we got home Wilson had puked ALL OVER THE PLACE. Including Papa. No photos available...
