“Summer is fun for everyone, splash in the water and play in the sun! It’s SUMMERTIME!”

– Yo, Gabba Gabba
My poor little blog, how you’ve been neglected! Please forgive me! The siren song of summer calls to us, and we have had no choice but to answer . . . Nearly every spare moment has found us in her embrace, and the backyard seems so far from this digital land. As the days turn to weeks and even months, my baby chronicles have fallen so far behind that I don’t even know where to begin in the catching up! I’ve snagged a few nap-time moments to assemble a haphazard pile of photographs narrating some of our season thus far. The multitude of images posted below have all been snapped from within the boundaries of my own property, and so give you a real feel for what exactly it is that we’ve been up to over here. These are the crumbs, the bits. . . the day-to-day of our world.
