back to basics

here are some of the things we have to up to the last two months (i really need to get on instagram):
calm water.
k making peace with her blueberry muffin.

hike at mackworth island. josh doesn't look at all relaxed, does he?
hike to the top of bradbury mountain. it's not that far;less than a mile or else rory would have been riding piggy back style and we would have needed an extra large backpack with all the hiking paraphernalia to get us to the top because our family gets hangry almost every hour. we do not travel lightly.
kite flying at popham beach. it took us longer than you would think to get it up.
i spy a sand dollar.
r drawing.
blueberry pie from two fat cat's bakery. a little slice (or should i say 1/4 of the pie) of heaven. and john derian goodness at k collette in portland.
the portland head light. the oldest lighthouse in maine.
josh's birthday gift to me. and 38th birthday buzz.

celebration dinner and pretty painting at my parents house.

father's day breakfast at drift inn beach.
it's lupine season in maine. i always think of the children's book, 'miss rumphius' when i see them.
rory found this injured butterfly.
mating horseshoe crabs. k corrected me and said "no mama; they're dating."
sandy point beach. had dinner al fresco with our friends. we all smelled like bug spray.
it's book sale season in maine. bumchuckawawawa. my dirty little habit.


  1. These captured moments are so lovely. Your connection to nature is spectacular... I've been in a frenzy buying books lately, which could be considered my dirty little habit too. They're a necessity, right? : ) Happy belated birthday!
