Summer Nights

Our days are hot and muggy (quite possibly hell on earth) but the nights bring some relief* with the darkness.

*except for the mosquitoes. They LOVE me. I took Benedryl to sleep last night through the itching.

Summer nights also bring out Toads

And is there anything more lovely than fireflies twinkling like Christmas lights in the trees and shrubs?
If only I had a camera that could actually capture such beauty!

But wait! What is this?

In SnakeMaster’s eyes, there is something lovely here…

Touching, isn’t it? 😉


Weekend in Review

Sending off teenagers for a week-long mission trip
(gah!! pictures by mom!!)

Visiting cousins = weekend play-date

Burning brush to make coals for S’Mores…

I love my fire pit!


…and a few early fireworks.
