I am so very thankful for the past couple of days. I don’t think we realized how much our family was in need of unhurried, spontaneous time together. Of time to sit, time to take in the surroundings, time to let the kids decide where to head next, time to let them run and explore, time to let them get their feet wet searching for critters, time to reflect, time to enjoy tradition, time to express thanks that we are together this year, and, after enduring the bitter cold and deep snow of the winter just past, time to bask in the warmth of the sun and the glow of early summer evenings. If only I could bottle up the days and drink them in later, how wonderful that would be! Then again, if we could substitute past enjoyment for the present, I suppose we might never bother to slow down at all.

So many little hands! He had the patience of Job.
All the “helpers”
It’s not every day you get to pose with a SEAL!
A side trip to Beavertail at the kids’ request.
The last time we’ll end Memorial Day with ice cream at this house!
Ice cream and a two year old…somehow messier than ice cream and a one year old!
This year’s obstacle “chorus”
And, lastly, from our Seaman: “Here comes me!”
