Granddaughter SPS watching the waves
Our kids are scattered all over the States - Massachusetts, Washington, DC, Montana, Washington state, and California. We have a blended family with a grand total of eight kids. It's really a challenge to get all of them on the same coast at the same time, and this year we were missing three, but we hope to get all of them together one of these days.
I just read a comment on a blog complaining about the blogger going off-topic and posting pictures of kids. So here's the disclaimer and your chance to move on - pictures of family and not much else to follow!
And playing killer croquet

Our annual picnic at Fort Stark. It's a beautiful spot and we always do a bit of a more "formal" picnic here. That means we drink our bubbly in those classy clear plastic cups! This year California daughter hired a photographer and we will soon have some professional pictures of our event . Our pictures are usually missing the photographer or have that frozen look you get when you're not quite sure when the timer will actually snap the picture.

Working on an art project - bubble solution mixed with watercolors and blown onto card stock. These papers will be the background for her summer vacation picture book. It's a treat to share creative mojo with her.
