Summer Fun

The weather has been fairly nice lately. Its cooler now, but we had some nice warm days. Some were so nice we finally got the pool out. First I hiked down the trail to retreive the hard plastic one the kids had been using for a sled. After washing it out and patching the holes with duct tape-Cyril had also used it as a target for his bow and arrow-we filled it up. And then when the weather stayed nice, we pulled out last year's big pool. Its suffered a bit from use, but if we give it fresh air each day it works. The kids decided it would be fun to make a boat out of the pool. It still had a few leaks but with enough bailing they were able to stay afloat.

Our neighbor brought out her dog course and the kids had a great time "training" the dogs to run it. Pippin was very excited.

As evienced by the fact that both feet are off the ground here.

And I am excited to have lots of new tomatoes coming on. The first one somehow got removed but there are a ton more now so I'm over it.

And on really hot days there are Iced Americanos. Or sometimes breve lattes. With a tiny bit of sugar.

Audrey found a humming bird and got a few pictures. Maybe we'll put up a feeder.
So far lots of summer fun, and its only June. And I talked to a nurse today and she said alcohol is not completely out once I start the Rebif, so there may be mojitos on the horizon too.
