Country club livin' is easy when you're one

Hazel's pool is simply divine...

Hazel- shall we see if we are in this month's Vanity Fair? The paps were at Billy Joel's party, after all.

Jogging is a great way to stay in shape for tennis

You really must get a giant leatherette purple grape: they really are the thing this year

Saddle my sheep! We ride to the hounds!

I feel I should give prizes all around. It encourages the farming folk.

Growing Season - A Gardener's Work

Eager to get out and enjoy the early August sunshine, Scout has taken up work as a part-time (part-time meaning once upon a time for about 20 minutes) gardener at the local herbal botanical garden.
Introducing the world's smallest gardener/herbalist.
"Where to begin?"

Tending to the nasturtiums and lady's mantle.

" Lavender? Looking good. Great job pollinators!"

"Phew, this is hard work. I'm just going to sneak off for a quick break."

Ah... shade.

"Hey lady, what time is it?"

"5pm? See ya' echinacea, I'm outta here."

Scout Camp

We had our first family camping overnight last week and it was a success. Scout enjoyed the tent, the pool, and picking up sticks around the camp site.
We all enjoyed a little respite from our busy summer days at home and at work.

The tent is looking good from the inside.

Little women.

Easing her way in.

Floating with dad.

Making the most of the beverage holders, a true camping experience.
