"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly,
"one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
- Hans Christian Andersen
We took a long weekend and did some camping at Watkins Glen. I haven't been there in about 15 years, and had forgotten how incredible it is.
We managed to avoid threatening rain and ended up with a mostly sunny, beautifully breezy weekend. We spent the hours on the playground (where Colin fell and left a pretty nasty gash between his eyes), cooking on the fire (where Evans glasses fell off - into the fire - and melted!) and of course walking the Glen (where I think all of us at one point slipped on the slick, damp limestone). It really was a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
Evan declared at one point on our hike that he "has a whole new appreciation for nature". That kid. :/
We came home to the garden beginning to bloom!
As for the vegetables - the lettuce is growing wonderfully! Everything else is coming along, slow but steady.
And a random summertime sweetness
PS - those pictures of the Glen look so much better if you click them for the large view :D
