I have accumulated photographs of various things this summer. Perhaps you'd enjoy looking at them?
We managed to cram a lot into this summer. We got a new gravel driveway, which rocks. The old driveway was basically just 3 pieces of gravel and rutted dirt tracks.
Jen and I packed up the kids and trekked to Missouri to see the midwest side of the family. We were at a different cookout almost every day we were there, and had a great time watching a homemade fireworks show the Fourth.
We went to the beach with the best beach crew possible - so many people that we had to have two houses. One house had a swimming pool, which we got a lot use out of. When I was a kid I thought it'd be crazy to rent a beach house with a pool - I mean, the ocean's right there, right? But it was so relaxing. In the morning, go to the beach, then eat lunch, then hop in the pool. Just about perfect.
I was working in Rochester in August, and had the chance to stay at a coworker's family farm and take a tour of part of the old Eerie Canal.
All in all, a good summer.
