Joining Amanda for {this moment}
{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Looking on the Bright Side

This has been a spectacularly wet day.
My favorite side effect of the rain is the drops on our little peony.
The rain began at 3:15 this morning, and didn't stop until 12:00 or 1:00.
Our basement has been filling with water all day, and I spent a considerable amount of time mopping.
The yard is a swamp, at one point when I went out the water was ankle deep in the grass.
We went out to have a mud squishing party, and  then back to more mopping.
Looking on the bright side, the flooding could have far, far worse. The vast majority of our storage is in rubbermaid tubs, and they just need a quick wipedown. And that big fluffy peony is the icing on the bright side cake.

A Peaceful Patio Painting Party

The second full day of summer has gone exactly as one would hope: A little gardening, a few chores, a two-hour (diaper-free!) nap for The Youngest, a trip to the Science Museum for The Younger, and now we three ladies are having some quiet patio time.

First Day of Summer!

What says happy first minute of summer (as the final day of school just ended) better than a trip to the ice cream shop?
As a bonus, this dairy-free girl found delicious honeydew sorbet on the menu!

Obligatory First and Last

 (those are index fingers, I swear)
Happy Last Day of School!
