Alex found a cicada in the process of molting. Being bug-dumb, I have probably used the wrong terminology.
We enjoyed watching a movie under the stars (thanks to Lee Landis, techno-genius) at our annual neighborhood Labor Day picnic.
I was quite impressed with the teenager who had the great idea to haul a futon out for the picnic! I'm sure he was most comfortable all evening while the adults stood or sat on folding chairs, and he probably had a cozy night's sleep!
My favorite picture of the summer (or year, or lifetime). Emma, age four, took this winner! Yes, I do live quite happily with these two menacing men.
