Melt this mama's heart.


Caught you reading.

We discovered an amazing used bookstore in Del Ray and spent a lot of our Sunday morning browsing.


The Boy is Back in Town

We all got in the car at 7a to drive to Camp Horizons to pick up Max. He had an amazing time and is already planning to head back next summer. He came home for lunch and then headed out to a VERY hot practice for Cooperstown - the head index was 110 and the car said 101. Yikes! While he and Mom sweltered, Dad and Evelyn headed to the ice rink to keep cool and show off their skills. Glad they were cool - the power went out about an hour after we got home, and it was HOT. We quickly headed out for a Max-selected Japanese dinner at a great ramen restaurant, and extended the fun (and the a/c) with a visit to the Barbie movie. We came home to a hot, dark house and piled into the basement for sleep. The power was back on by 2:10a. What a looooooong day!

If you forget the tent, are you really camping?

When we woke up Saturday, Ian noted that it was going to be just 84 degrees and low humidity. So we decided to take advantage of the weather and head to Prince William Forest Park for the night. Two hours later, we were on an ideal site with all of our gear... except the tents!  While Mom headed to buy the new, bigger tent we had been talking about getting at some point in the future, Dad and Evelyn took the dog for a 4-mile hike. Then it was time to construct the new tent (which would be very comfortable for 4+the dog - less certain the promised 8-person capacity would be comfortable... or even doable!), cook up some steaks, and enjoy the night in the woods.  While Piper hung out on the dog run, Buildy enjoyed hanging by the fire with the rest of us.
