My favorite lifeguard

 We shipped Rooney up to Lake Onway in New Hampshire, to lifeguard at Boston Stake's Girls' Camp for the week.
Word on the street is that she loves it, they love her, and going to girls camp as a leader is even MORE fun than going as a camper!

Toe-tapping, hand clapping, finger snapping FUN

 One of my favorite summer traditions is setting up the lawn chairs, spreading out the blanket and listening to the Monday night band concerts on the town common.

Sunday in New Hampshire


Sister time, squishy babies, and an Eagle Court of Honor to beat all others. It was a good Sunday.

addio Teresa

We really enjoyed the month with our Italian daughter!
Too quickly, our time together was over, and she flew back to Italy.

truth or consequence

The best part of this hike was the VERY short time it took us to get to the North viewing area of Mount Pisgah somewhere between Northboro and Berlin. Our hikers were elated.
"Best.hike.EVER!" they said. 
 So the leaders became the followers, and the new and self-appointed leaders decided to direct us back to the parking lot. The truth is, we're still not quite in agreement about who led the way. The happy adult leaders were chatting it up in the back of the line. The consequence is that our short walk turned into a real (hot) hike, as we wandered around on unfamiliar trails for more than an hour before we decided to deliberate and change our course. 
 The short ending to the long hike? We lived to tell about it. We made it out of the woods. And we laughed. A little.
